Lauren and I ran in June. That was also probably one of the prettiest races I've run--a total small-town race, it was on a running trail through fields and farms. Loved it! Loved running with Lauren too! (This race should also get an award for best outfit. Lauren and I not only had matching tank tops and glittering tiaras, but also had inspirational messages on our backs. LOVE.)
Sorry, no pics of this race!Most Emotional: Is anyone else an emotional runner?? During a tough run, I could cry at any given moment, and not just tears of pain! This award goes to the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon. I think I cried like 100 times during this race, mostly from the "In Memory" pictures and sayings on the back of people's shirts!
Can you tell I'm an emotional basket case in this picture? I'm about to either collapse or burst into tears. Thanks for spectating, Older Brother!Cutest Race Ever: This one definitely goes to the Girls on the Run 5K. Tiaras, pink, cute medals, and running the whole thing with a 10 year old? Yes please.
Obv this isn't the 10 year old I ran with--it's one of my lovely co-coaches, Melinda!"Holy #&^% my @*& is FROZEN!": Oh gosh. For sure the Cross Country Challenge 5-mile run Katy and I did. Umm no one told us that we'd need to wade through a freezing RIVER! (Okay, it was a stream, but come on.)
5 miles: 2
1/2 Marathon: 1
Muddy Buddy: 1 :)
