I did it - I survived my first race! The Cow Town Marathon was today and my friends and I made up two teams of 4 for the relay. We each ran 6.55 miles and although I didn't feel quite prepared and my shin splints had returned earlier this week, I had a blast! Our team was 13th at 4 hours 47 minutes and the other team was 15th at 4 hours and 57 minutes. I was happy to run the last leg of the race which was beautiful along the river and through a nice neighborhood and finishing up at the park. My friend Alicia ran the last leg for our other team so we had lots of fun together waiting our turn and cheering the others on. Here are some pictures from after the race:
Brandy didn't run but was a critical part of the team shuttling runners back and forth between the check points.
My #1 fan! It was so nice of my sister and parents to bring the kids and wait around for me to finally finish. Wish Daddy could have been there but he was playing with the worship team at church.
