I'm Alive!

Can I just say, this weekend was simply exhilerating. 

There was only one glass of wine involved, but still.  Just exhilerating.

Saturday was finally the big day....RACE day.  I thought I would be a little nervous, but honestly, I was just stoked.  I have been training for this race since March and for the day to finally arrive was surreal. 

YES.  I realize it's not the frickin' Boston Marathon or anything.  But for me, it was MY Boston Marathon. 

My Saturday was FILLED guessed it.  SoBe. 

And thank the LORD for all that SoBe.  Because it was 100 degrees outside. 

Awesome Venue.

And Awesome Friends....who came to support & brave the heat.  My parents also came...but sadly, we didn't get a picture together.  Darn it!

On the way down, we had to stop & admire Kansas City's FABULOUS Graffiti Art.

I'm supposed to be running.

Get it?

And the race begins.......635 runners.


 I ended up finishing with a time of 31 minutes & placed 300th out of 635. 

Hell to the yes.

Quite a weekend.  How about you all??

31 minutes? Thanks freakin' fantastic! I think it would take me an hour to run a 5k. Do you like running? Think you'll do another?

You are so inspiring!! Way to kick some serious booty!!

PS. I just stalked your blog trying to find a certain post to link to in my blog for tomorrow. I swear I'm not a legit stalker though.

OMG, I was just sitting here and you totally popped into my head. HOW WAS THE RACE?! I cannot believe I haven't talked to you in so long!

It looks like it went great and I am so proud of you!!!

I am adding you to my reader (I am SO TERRIBLE at keeping it up to date) so this never happens again.

Hope your weekend went well!!!!
