What I was dreading.
|sobbing. there are no words.|
I can't even begin to explain my feelings about this run. It seems like it went by SO fast. Not finishing was never an option. I knew I could do it. Wasn't sure about my hip, or the sprained ankle...but all was okay.
I will say that doing the majority of my training alone made me SO VERY appreciate the race-day support I had from Mel, Mike, and especially Kerrie. I'm such a very blessed and lucky person to have such wonderful friends in my life - friends who take care of me and watch out for me and push for me to do things I never ever ever in a million years thought I could do.
This trip started in the back of my head over a year ago. In September I confessed to Mel I wanted to run a half. For the last four and a half months I've run the hills of Downtown Seattle, sweated through afternoon meetings, run through winter storms and thought about this day.
I did it. I did it.
