Rain, rain, go away...

Brian finished the race! He did so awesome considering the circumstances. It pored the rain and here are Brian's results.

His sister Jenny also did the 1/2. She walked it and did such an amazing job! I don't think that I could have done it.
Hopefully one day I can run a 1/2 marathon. This is my only running goal in life. I sucked at the 5K on Saturday, but I am not giving up. Now begins the hard core weight loss and preparation for the Bluegrass 10K, which isn't until July3rd, but I need to loose some weight and some serious time off the clock. Wish me luck!

6 days away...

There are six days left until the big race on Sunday. Brian has been preparing like a mad man, and well since I am only in the 5K, I have been doing as little as possible that I can do and still get away with. (hehehe) Yesterday was my first speed workout of the year. We went to the local track and I ran 6 laps (1.5 miles) in 13:47. I was pretty proud of myself, even though it wasn't the fastest. For me... it was pretty fast.
This weekend we are going to Cynthiana to hang out with Ash and Forrest and get into whatever they have planned. They bought a house and have been going crazy trying to get it ready. So we may be moving them, or we may be packing them, or maybe a little of both. Either way, I am pretty excited and anxious for some Ashley time! :O)
