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!
