pre-race early morning photo

4 years ago i drew in the lottery to run the moab half-marathon. i was pregnant, about 8 weeks along and still planned on jogging it, but when my doctor found out the forecast was 87 degrees he nixed the trip. good thing too, i heard people passed out left and right that year.

so, on saturday, 4 years later i finally ran it with two of my friends, tara and robyn sandoval. not only was it amazingly refreshing to sleep two nights away from my kids, but so fun to just relax.
granted, the flu last week knocked me out cold so i definitely didn't set a pr (personal record, for you non-runners) or anything, but i did it. my butt started and sloughed through running 13.1 miles. it was gorgeous, amazingly beautiful scenery, and i must say, the running crowd is very, very nice.
yeah for me.

more pictures to come.

hey, when i started running with charlotte i couldn't make it farther than 1/2 mile. everyone starts somewhere. i definitely have no desire to do a full marathon though. i think you have to really want that!
