This is Blogworthy!!! I ran the Little Rock Half-Marathon!!!


I like to try and keep this blog about the girls, but this is something I want to remember. This weekend I ran the Little Rock Half Marathon!!! I ran with a good friend of mine, Jill Jorgensen!! We started training about 12 weeks ago. The whole process has been such a fun experience. Hopefully this will be the first of many races for us!
My goals for this race were to run (never stop and walk) the whole thing and finish under 2:30. I did run the whole thing and our time was 2:26 - so I was happy! I really wanted to die about mile 10 to 12!!! But you know what, God is good and he kept pushing me on. This is not the best picture, because it's from Steven's phone. This picture was taken real close to the finish line. When I get time I will download more pictures from the camera.

That's awesome Devin! Congrats. I ran my first last year and after I have this baby I am going to start training again for another. Isn't it so fun!!! I miss running. I haven't been since the beginning of my pregnancy. I can't wait to get back into it. Good job for finishing under 2:30, that's awesome. It's such a great feeling and great accomplishment.

Wooo HOoo! So proud of you and Jill!!! I hate I didn't see you during the race. The kids and I skipped around trying to see Jason so we never stayed in one place very long. You did a great job and I am so glad you enjoyed it. I want in on the next one!!! ;)
