I have to give kudos to my family too for sticking by me through thick, and thin. On days that I did not want to train, Shanon was there to pick a fight with so that I had an excuse to get out of a run. On Saturday mornings, once the long runs took over our whole afternoon, Colton was there to go on about something or another while Alex rode his bike next to me chattering all the way. Bailey loved the long rides, until we hit the 9 mile mark when the wet diaper couldn't hold anymore, or her little toes got tired and would rather run. Shanon was a trooper the whole time. I love you hubby!! I love my kiddos!!
All in all I've lost about thirteen pounds total, with sixteen more to go to reach my goal weight. My finish time for 13.1 total miles was 2 hours 30 minutes. That's an average of about 11 minutes 40 seconds per mile. Slow, but average I suppose.
This race is definitely dedicated to my wonderful family o' five. I love you guys, even when I'm extra special tired and start to get cranky.....a.k.a. you know what I'm talking about wink wink (I'm sure my mom remembers from when I was a child). I suppose that's another post for another time.
