This past Saturday I finished my 3rd half marathon!
I am so happy to be running again and the race was awesome! It is the best feeling to finish a race and see how strong you can be when you decide that you will do this.
I always finish telling myself, "you are stronger than yesterday" I say it over and over in my head and it helps. It also was a huge bonus that this time I got to run the entire race with Brian. Granted he was ahead of me a few times but I always had him in my sight. Even if I felt like a horse chasing a carrot on a stick, he kept me motivated to push myself a little harder than I probably would have if I were on my own. Unfortunately for him it wasn't his best time......I beat him by a second! Seriously, one teeny, tiny second! But for me it is shear victory because in our 11years together I have never beat him at anything! We tend to have a little healthy competition with each other. But this time I am the winner and I have enjoyed reminding him of this repeatedly.
We have another race in 2 weeks and I'm sure he will take the crown but for now, it's all mine!
