We got to our spectating spot at 7 a.m. I couldn’t sleep last night because I was so so excited. I couldn’t wait to be surrounded by SO MANY runners, friends, good weather and of course being able to RUN MYSELF for a few miles.
We were out cheering for about 2 hours (the half started before the full) and the sister and I started complaining about hand chaffing and hoping that we could get a hand massage at the end of the race….our poor hands were so tired from clapping so much.
I saw so many of my STRONG runner friends and I would get the goosebumps in 70 degree weather seeing them run by, so happy and accomplishing their goals.
HERE IS ASH!!! She did amazing and we had so much fun running together!!! Sasha….you killed that marathon too wahoo. Remember how ash did a marathon 3 weeks ago?!?!
I also got to run a little with Julia (dominated her first marathon) and my aunt!! It was so fun to run her in with my sis and cousin. Family + running+ popsicles afterwards….does it get any better than that?
After the race my sister and I went to the gym to do some weights. Um, my mom called and invited us to Cafe Rio. The front desk people laughed at us for walking into the gym and leaving five minutes later. Food>Lifting.
I know. I really do have a problem but how could I turn down my aunt and cousins going to Yogurtland. Pretty sure eating outside is one of my favorite things in the world. Yes, it looks as though my eyes are closed but I can tell you that they were not.
And this is my don’t leave me my beautiful cousin face. (She is going to Peru for two months next week:(
Do not look directly at my knees/legs…..it could cause serious damage to your cornea.
I can’t think of a better way to spend my day.
Congrats to all of you amazing RUNNERS today at the UV half and full marathon!!!
Do you like eating outside?
Do you have cousins that live close? Did you see your cousins a lot growing up?
Do you run with sunglasses?
-I don’t have real ‘running’ sunglasses and so I tried out normal ones today and it was so nice to run without squinting the whole time. Billy, lets start saving for some running shades okay?
