I ran the Houston Half Marathon yesterday! I have to say…I felt like death when I crossed that finish line, but I am so proud of myself for doing it. I was really good up until about mile 10, and then I definitely hit a wall. I am glad that I have 76 more days to train for the Marathon. The half yesterday was a real eye opener-I cannot slack on my training anymore!

So I finished in just under 2 hours and 20 minutes, which is a 10:41 mile. My goal was under 2.5 hours, so I did it! There was a time in my life when I would have been embarassed at a 10:41 mile, but that was back in the days of running 1 or 2 miles. But for 13 miles, I am darn proud of that!

I can’t wait to see the race pictures, because I am sure I look like I got hit by a truck. But you better believe they will be posted on here as soon as they are ready!

So yesterday I was just wrecked and I went to bed at 8:30. Connor got to come tuck me in since he was still up. He was so cute! He did it just the way I do it, giving me 8, 3, and then 2 kisses since that is was the clock said. I said “I love you, Connor.”, and he replied, “No, mommy. I say it first!” So we did it the right way. When he got to my door he said “Sleep tight. I’ll see you in the morning. I love you!” So sweet.

I’m taking the boys to the pumpkin patch today, so I am sure there will be pictures galore of that! Connor is super excited, especially after watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”.

Since no post is complete without at least one picture, I will leave you with this super sweet gem.
My boys crack me up!

  1. You are my hero too – Like I told you Friday – I have not run since my last post about it – but I am going to get back on the horse tomorrow! I swear! Love you RM!

  2. Wow! Congratulations! I was just bragging on you training for a marathon this morning at work. Way to go!

    I love the story of Connor tucking you in the the night – he’s learned how to do that very well. Good Daddy practice for your future grandchild.
