13.1 Miles!

The day Finally came! The day we would run our first half marathon! We’ve been “training” and preparing for this day for a quite a while now. It was exciting! And we were nervous! Well, I know I was! Here are the “before” the race pictures!

While we were running our guts out, all the husbands showed up with ALL the kids. And this is what the kids did while waiting for their mommies to finish running!

I couldn’t believe Kate was there to run the last straight-a-way with me! My facial expressions are painful!

Sherrie’s husband and sons. They made her cute posters!
When Sherrie rounded the curve! I think we all teared up! I am so proud of these ladies and that we did it!

You are so wonderful. Tears came to my eyes and heart as I seen you there and knowing you were fighting a sinus infection too. So grateful for Kate and Sherrie's support and strength too. You are all very special ladies. I'm very partial to Robin, she's my baby ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
