Country Music 1/2 Marathon

In interest of time, and the fact that I have a post for almost every day this week, I am not going to post my goal reporting for last week. :) I'll set new goals next week. This week is all about recovering. So, on to today's post.

Saturday was the day. My hubby, his sister and I ran the Country Music 1/2 Marathon in Nashville. We trained, and we prayed the rain would wait until we finished running. Actually, by mile 10 I was thinking a little rain would feel pretty good. It was the predicted lightening I wanted to hold off.

I would like to say I am thrilled with the outcome, but I'm a little disappointed. However, in an effort to be more positive I will say this. I AM CONSISTENT. We have run this race three years in a row. My times? 2:34, 2:33 and 2:34. I still enjoyed every minute of the experience and this year I can still walk up and down stairs! The first year I could barely walk the next day, last year it was just stairs that gave me problems. So, I guess I should look at the bright side. I may not be any faster, but my body is stronger. Here are some pictures from the day.

Oh, and my family helped me tape the dance video. It goes live on Thursday. You don't want to miss it!


  1. What an accomplishment! You should be very proud.

  2. Wow! I couldn't run that fast to save my life! Well done :~D

    Also, can't wait until thursday :~)

    Have a brilliant Monday!

    Oh, and it's so cool that you have your own bench btw ;~)

  3. I'm so impressed. I'd have strolled and admired the changing cloud colouration. ;)

  4. I admire anyone who can run for longer than an hour.

  5. Way to go!! Good job! I'm with the others, I couldn't run like that either!

    By the way, when you said you'd like to see Radish and her boy in ten years?...Okay! I liked the idea so much that I went right home and wrote out a scene, and it will be a perfect entry for the Lets Talk fest : ) Thanks!

  6. Thanks all!

    Mia, you will laugh so hard you'll be rolling on the floor. Make sure you use the loo before you watch. ;) I need to find the picture of me on this bench from high school. Wonder if it still exists? (big hair, neon shorts, might have been destroyed by now)

    Elaine, the clouds were a wonder to see that day. There were also bands playing every mile or so and cheer squads to keep our minds off the insanity.

    Patti, there was a time I couldn't run 2 full minutes without stopping to walk. I guess I have come a long way.

    Lilah, I'm so excited! Glad I could help inspire you and I can't wait to read the next scene. *jumping up and down in anticipation*
