I missed a couple months of Amanda's fun running link-up, but this one pretty much just required a picture, so I figured I could handle that ;) I know that ever since I ran my first half-marathon a few weeks ago I've pretty much mentioned it daily weekly, but I kinda' can't help it. I'm still running (ha- pun intended!) on that high, I think.
And while I couldn't justify the ridiculous prices for the photos of me in my half-marathon, what better than to screenshot a few for you all? This is what I'd like to call "half-marathon series of emotions"
"Yes! This is so awesome, mile 6 and still feeling pretty good overall. There's a cute old man choir right there! Oh my gosh! They're so cute! and old!"
"Okay... why the HECK did I sign up for this? Mile 11 might as well be mile 317 because my legs cannot go another step. Must walk, must walk. Ooh, are they handing out twizzlers up there? I need a few of those"
"RUNNING IS MY FAVORITE THING EVER!! I just finished 13.1 miles!! Let's sign up for another one!! Well, right after my feet stop bleeding and my hip doesn't suck. I LOVE RUNNING!!!!"
And in other running news, I've got an AWESOME giveaway for you all that I'm super excited to share today!!! :) Tamara and Nate York are a husband/wife team working full-time at their owned/operated YorkSignShop! They left their jobs to pursue a dream and are now fortunate to work from home and spend more time with their two kiddos! They are both runners, and half-marathons are their main gig. Tamara is hoping to do a full and Nate plans to add some triathlons to his resume in the next year or so. Running is definitely a family-affair for them and their kids are doing their first race next month where they'll get to dress as super heroes!
