Easter

Last fall, Sarah and I talked about running the St. George 1/2 marathon that was January 17. Okay I said that means A LOT of time on the treadmill. UGH!! I really enjoy being outside but it's a bit too cold and not too good on the ankles dodging the ice chunks. So I committed to train inside.

We took Grandma and Alisha to Cedar City to spend the night with Kyle, Gina, and the girls. We ate dinner at the NINJA (like Benihana's). That was fun to visit a short bit with them. Then on to St. George.

The morning weather was beautiful in St. George - up to 60 degrees and not even much of a breeze. I start off doing great and then my feet went numb - oh man! I really had intended on getting a good time but was afraid I might twist an ankle or fall because I couldn't feel my feet SOOOoooo.....I slowed down. Big mistake! Well let's just say we finished --not last but not as good of a time as I had wanted. Sarah tried with all of her might to get me to get the lead out!!! She is so much fun to be with and I appreciate her "taking one for the team" and staying with me. I'm sure she could have finished AT LEAST 45 minutes sooner. Thank You Sarah for the fun! Looking forward to Ogden in May.

Good job mama! you know it would take me three days and 23 hours. Hopefully I can get my butt into gear for May. If not, I will be waiting at the finish line, eating a gallon of cottoncandy : )

Hey! You finished!! That's an accomplishment no matter what the time. I've never had my feet go numb....that's gotta be a weird experience. And I'm sure some people would have quit just because of that!

Can I just say "you ROCK"! That is so awesome! I have to agree with Lisa on this one. You finished! You didn't let your weakness get the best of you. Congrats to you and Sarah!
