another goal down.

Here is where I was this weekend:

running a sweet 1/2 marathon with my sister.

I ran a 1/2 a few years ago and hated every second of it. I vowed at the end of it I wouldn't ever run another..but lately started feeling like that was a silly thing to do and since my sister was running this one and wanted someone to run it with her, I obliged. And it was a great experience. My brother and sister-in-laws race management company put on the race..and it was awesome.

we ran it on the salt flats, out of Wendover, NV...and the scenery was beautiful..
Here I am at the halfway those mountains!
and finishing the race..such a fun time, and great sister bonding time..right, em?!:)
And of course the take home lesson being that just because you don't like something the first time, doesn't mean you should just quit..just simply try again, and maybe..just maybe the experience will be great!
