Rock & Roll 1/2 Marathon

This past weekend, we ran in the Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 Marathon. A 1/2 Marathon is 13.1 miles. Our goal was to finish in 2 hours and 15 minutes but we were able to finish in 2 hours and 10 minutes. WAY TO GO MOMMY & DADDY!!

On Saturday afternoon, we headed to the Expo. I am so excited to see my kiddos learn about living a healthy life. They are BEGGING to find races they can run in now!!

Over 30,000 people entered....the start of the race is PAST that blue circle in the picture. CRAZY HUH?

While we were running, Cheney, Chandler, MeMe & Pop were riding the shuttle to the finish line. MeMe said the kids had a blast riding the bus!!

WE FINISHED!! It is amazing that while we were running I was thinking "WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF?" but now, I am ready to do another one. Crossing the finish line is the best feeling in the world!!

Way to go. Hope to see Cheney run soon and Chandler run in the not too distant future. She told me that she wanted to run "like Mommy when I am older." LOL
