I had no trouble waking up Saturday morning, and the butterflies were gone, I was READY! I have never felt that calm and ready to run a race ever! I think part of it was the fact that it's a "smaller" race and I was running with so many of my friends. We met up before the race to chat and keep warm.
|Look at all that happy going on!! Most of us here are running the Pelee Island Half Marathon together, can you say FUN!!!|
|With the kids after the race, next up the family 1 mile race|
|The girls warming up for their race. Kasey was funny the morning of the race she was like "REALLY? I just want to enjoy myself on the couch it's Sunday!" but by the time the race stuff started they were back into being excited.|
|and Ryan just plain old being a weird cross fitter....funny story when he was doing the spring dog poop clean up he squatted around the backyard working on his "mobility" Weird no? I kind of wish he had fallen in the poop lol.|
|Kay taking off ahead of her sister, Ryan stayed with her|
|I stayed with Kasey, I wasn't allowed to actually be with her and had to hang back. She would bolt like lightening and then rest, whine, whine some more, do tree pose to catch her breathe and then BAM!!! off she went again. #intervaltrainingkidstyle|
|Proud girls with their medals|
I can not wait to take off on a girls weekend to Pelee Island with these same girls, in a month, to run our next race. I have a feeling this will be the most fun Half Marathon I will ever run! I'm also pretty excited two friends will be running their first half marathon's that weekend.
