Last Sunday I ran my second half marathon. That officially makes me a Half-Marathoner (according to my brother). It was such a beautiful run, and really fun with tones of support and entertainment, that I wanted to share some of the highlights. 🙂
We were serenaded by bagpipes at the starting line.
First view of the lake on the run that followed the south shore.
More pipers! 🙂
A little funk to keep us moving.
Just me and a monkey. And only a mile or two to go.
Here is Carly (my half-marathoner pal) and I, before and after, and the moment Carly realized she forgot her shoes. She normally runs in Vibrams, those weird feet things. So she ran the first 7 1/2 miles barefoot while her husband fetched her shoes. And she still beat me. She is a champ!!
Our rewards – a fancy medal and watching the sun set on the beach. Oh yeah, and the satisfaction of knowing we did something that most people would never dream of doing. Ahhhhh.
