Woke up at 3:15 AM this morning! Yuck! But I do it all for the love of running! I met my girls Katrina, Christina, Jennifer, and Laura at Jen's house at 3:40. We jumped in the car and rode over to Fairhope. We first rode our route and dropped our Gatorade and water every 3 miles. Then it was time to get started! We ran in Fairhope next to the bay...beautiful! We ran 3 miles past The Grand Hotel and then turned around and headed back. The last mile we picked it up (about a 9:30 pace) and I thought I was going to die lol! We were going fast PLUS it was up a hill! But we all made it! We ran the 12 miles in about 2 hours and 35 minutes. Slow but steady. The run felt great but my right knee on the outside is pretty sore...not liking that. And that is discouraging me a bit from thinking about running the full marathon instead of the half in November. All the girls are trying to talk me into running the full but that REALLY scares me lol! Gonna be praying hard about that!
Speaking of the girls...here we all are at The CAUSEway 5K last weekend! I love these girls and would have never made it this far without them! Thanks to Emily Peak Photography for taking both of these awesome photos of us!
Jennifer, Christina, Katrina, Me, and Laura!
