vancouver usa half marathon

Last weekend I finished my second half marathon! You might remember running a half marathon was on my 2012 Goal List, well I’m happy to say I conquered every one of those 13.1 miles. It had been a long week including a little encounter with the stomach flu, a cross country airplane trip with my 14 month old and only one day to recover before heading down to the race, but I still made it. (And so did Isla, which is also amazing.) My goal was to run in under 2 hours and I came in at 1:57, so I’m pretty happy with that.

Here I am before the race! Ready to run!

All done, posing with half my cheering section.

For those of you who have known me for a while, you may be surprised to see me love running so much. (Let’s just say that gym class was my least favorite part of the school day.) I absolutely love running. I have a great running partner, so the miles go by quickly, and I feel so strong and empowered after a big run. I also hope to be an inspiration to Isla showing health, strength and confidence.

Lastly, thanks to my husband for being so supportive and encouraging when I doubted myself. 🙂
