i ran my butt off and then some...

i know, i know... i've been gone, gone, gone!  that big race we've been training for...well, it's finally OVER and i feel like i can get my life back a bit!  the mister and i did it!  15.5 miles and we lived to tell about it!  i have the greatest friends, cheeky green and unusual girl studios came on downtown to cheer us on... and drink beer in the party tent after the race.  cheeky green had her camera in hand and captured some pictures:
3947, that's me!  can you tell what i'm thinking?  if you guessed "where the heck is the potty?", you would be correct.  i tend to give TMI, so let's just say.... 15.5 miles can kinda shake the ___ outta ya!  but let's focus on my cute pink outfit!!

here's the mister and i after the race, let's just say he was smellin' a little RIPE, i'm sure i smelled lovely (cause i'm a girl)!

cheeky green, me, the mister, and unusual girl studios!  did i mention the MEDAL?? you know how i love my medals :)
during the race i kept thinking "i will NEVER, EVER do this again, this is the most horrible thing i've done to myself in years" after the race i started planning for next year!  you know why?  runners are insane, it's the only logical answer!  as a matter of fact, i'm already signed up for a half marathon in the fall, but after a 25k that will be a piece of cake,  it's ONLY 13.1 miles!
Oh wait, before i go i'd like to leave you with just 1 more lovely photo
the blister on my big toe!  
1 of 4 blisters (2 were UNDER my toenails...).  because i knew you needed more proof i was nuts! and for the record, that's wool fuzz, not hair on my toe!
i'm taking this week off of running, although  i am running with my darling saturday for her girls on the run 5k, but that should be an easy breezy run.  if you've never heard of girls on the run and have a 3rd-5th grader, look them up, it's an incredible group for girls!!

LOVE your pink outfit!!! Running is all about your race day outfit anyhow!

Incredibly proud of you, but you already know that part!

Good Luck to K this weekend... I'm sure she takes after you and will rock her race! I LOVE GOTR. If I can ever make it work with my schedule I want to coach for them.

Still working on a pic of Aub, but I will get you one!

Renee said...

Great job. Good luck this weekend to the both of you.

That blister looks painful.

Relax and enjoy a few days before you run again.

You did great! Mister on the other hand....did well, also. I did great, also- I truly thought I would die....getting my but out of bed, getting dressed, getting in Kristi's car when in it pulled in my drive and trekking all over my favorite town of GR....I earned that beer! Oh wait...this was about you...YOU were great!
