I ran my third half marathon with my sister Elisa on Sunday. It was fun to run Hutchinson's first half marathon, Run For the Rocks. I was so excited to get back into training once I found some bands that helped with my knee pain. I signed up for this race as soon as they announced it, so I would have a goal for training and ended up being the second person to sign up! My training went well enough that I was pretty nervous for the race because I really wanted to reach a new PR for myself.
Greg was on duty so he got permission to take the fire truck to watch us at one of the intersections. As we were within a few blocks of them we heard their sirens start and they were off to a call. That bummed me out but he was able to get to another location and cheer us on later. My mom and Elisa's husband and all of our kids were cheering us on at several different locations. That was so nice to have, there is just something motivating about being cheered on. My mom even recruited others to cheer us on also! I know she would have loved to be running right along side us!
