I will start with the 200 mile relay that was the best fun of my ENTIRE life. I got to not sleep for over 24 hours because I wanted to, not because a baby kept me up. (Okay actually I did get some sleep in that 24 hours, but it wasn't a good sleep. I got to bond with friends. Yes we were friends before but being crammed in a car and have to follow them and cheer them on you really bond!! I realized that I'm a lot stronger then I give myself credit for. I ran 5.4 miles up a mountain where I gained 1200 ft. Yup I did it!! In the end we finished in 28:16 minutes 1st place in our non competitive division!!

Next Lacey started Kindergarten this morning. There were tears in my eyes and I lined her up and kissed her goodbye. I can't believe MY baby is already a Kindergartener. Where oh where has time gone?
After I dropped her off I did something I thought was impossible. I ran 15 miles....by myself. It felt so good. Since Brandon was working I parked my car at work and ran 7.5 miles out on Old 40 and back in. I let my boss know that I was planning on doing this. I let him know for 1 so if something were to happen someone would know where I was, and 2 because he is a runner and if I couldn't do it he would be able to come get me. I sent him a text at 11 miles letting him know that my hips were killing me, he asked if I wanted to a pick up...I responded with NO just tell me I can do it. He told me I could do it and I did!! Just having the support of EVERYONE I knew that I could do it. Sometimes you just need to hear from someone else that you can!
