Half Marathon, wrapping up the weekend.


It is Sunday morning and I have had a great weekend. I hope you have too! I ran my first half marathon yesterday... yay! I want to do another one now just to try and beat my time. It was fun. 

My mom, Mackenzie and I headed to Sacramento the night before the race and stayed the night there. We got up super early, had breakfast and were off to the race. The crowd was huge and it really gets your adrenaline pumping. Mackenzie and I before the race...

Here  I am getting ready to run...

That is me with the the black top and the pony tail. 

I was really tired coming in but I was trying to smile although I look like I am in pain...

Luckily I had Mackenzie and my mom there to cheer me on! 

Mackenzie & I after the race...

She is happy to be wearing the free shirt and hat I got. After that I let her wear the metal too and she was happy about that. 

I let my mom drive home because my feet were killing me! All in all, it was fun. I am going to buy myself a garmin though, so I can better track my time and mileage. There is a half marathon in Santa Rosa I want to do in October. Until that gets closer I am just going to enjoy my running and not force myself to stick to a schedule. 

That's all for today, I haven't been home to create any new recipes and don't have any exciting eats to share... so, enjoy the rest of your weekend! 


  1. Congrats on the half marathon!! That's awesome you want to sign up for more races. I have a Garmin and it's become attached to me...I would feel weird running without it! (Basically, I think it's a good investment :D )

    Another good investment is definitely body glide, like you said. Have a great rest of the weekend!

  2. Congratulations! I'm so proud of you.

    Mackenzie looks like she'd proud of you, too :-)

  3. YAY! Congrats!! You did it! And that was good time too! I love my Garmin... it definitely helps keep you grounded while you're running.. recommended for sure!

    And sad you weren't feeling too hot on race day- next time you'll be 100%!

  4. congrats on your race!!!!!!!!!
    i hope your week is going great after you big event :)
