Run with Nature

This time last year I had just completed a 1/2 marathon and while I would love to do one again, I just didn't have time to train this year so I did the next best thing, a 10K.

My good friend Kristen has been nice enough to let me drag her out several times a week to run with me. I have to admit, I have never had a consistent running buddy and I am getting spoiled because I look forward to our runs because not only do we get in some good exercise, we get to socialize too! Can't beat that!
Race day was super hot but we did it! The best part was having our families waiting-in the heat to watch us cross the finish line. At packet pick-up we made an impulsive hat purchase so Andrew didn't even recognize me (I don't wear hats) but I think I am being converted because it did an awesome job of keeping the sun out of my eyes + my forehead didn't see any sun = less wrinkles! Yay for hats!
Thanks Kristen for being a fun running buddy!

YAY! Good times! Its you I should thank for sticking with your slow-poke partner! I couldn't have done it without you! Somehow we need to try and fit in a few runs while Neal is gone! Miss you and our long chats!

Congrats! It looks like a hot day. I'm lucky it was rainy and cool on my race day! Looks like a fun run-I'll have to try that one next year.
