Hobble Creek 1/2 Marathon

WE DID IT! I still can't believe that i really did it, i've been wanting to run one and we only really trained for like 2 weeks!
I woke up this morning at 4:45 to eat some Breakfast so i would have some energy, and then we had to meet at Mapleton city park for the Bus pick up at 6 am (That's early)
The race was like 45 min late in starting, while we were waiting in line at the Port o potty's i was looking all over for Holli, my sis in law, and i couldn't find her anywhere. Then i hear the "Famous Laugh" and found her, So we were able to hang out for a while before the Race.
She must have been ahead of me the whole race, cause Caryn and I didn't pass her up.
Holli ran it in 1:54 (She ripped) and Caryn 2:08 and Me @ 2:09! We had to stop for about a 5 minute line for the Bathroom, i wonder if that really would have made much of a difference.


Here we all are after the Race! I loved it and it was such a pretty run, i am still singing in my head the Song from Aly & Aj ( my new Fav) "The potential break-up song"
I felt great besides my feet hurting for the Last 3 miles, i can't tell if it's from the run, or if my Brand new shoes weren't the best thing to wear for the Run! (i only wore them once before, oops)
Cory is sending me off to get a Full body massage tonight and i So need it!
Thanks Babe!

Good job, girls! Shannon, you're awesome. I'm proud of you for waiting for the bathroom instead of the other alternative. :) Now do you ever want to run a full?

Way to go Shannon! You are so awesome! I don't think I could do that in a million years. I think you have more than 24 hours in a day to get all of your things done. You are an amazing mom and wife! I wish I could say that I do that much in a day, but I would totally be lying. I'm pretty much a lazy bum.

Yea Shashi--way to go!! I'm with Heather on waiting for the potty stop. Nice. A guy in Dad's ward said he didn't like the way the race was organized--late, not enough drinks,etc. Sounds like it was a great experience, plus, you got the shirt!!
