Manitoba Marathon

My current facebook status:

So, Josh and I ran our first half-marathons today!!! Well, Josh ran the half-marathon…. in an amazing time of 1:28.26!!! His goal was 1:28 and he was right on target. He place 9th out of 144 in his age category and 44th place out of a total of 4,462 participants in the half-marathon. Way to go Josh!!!! After 4.5 miles I sadly started having issues with my IT band (I had this issue about 8 days ago while training)…. I thought I maybe could push through it and kept running until about 6.30miles. (I was still happy with my 6 mile time of 56 minutes even with some walking in the last mile). I saw Dave, Matt & Sam cheering on the sidelines and thought it was a good time then to catch a ride with them back to the stadium. A hard choice but I don’t think my leg would have held out past 7 or 8 miles. I was very excited however to get to the stadium just in time to see Josh run in!!! I think next year I will plan for the 10k instead. A fun morning!! And well done to my sister Colleen on her 10K!!! You are awesome. I also loved seeing Kara, Leanne and Jenna on the sidelines waiting for their leg in the relay!

    would have loved to have been there. Sounds amazing and congratulations to Josh, Liesa and Colleen. One of our dreams, maybe next year, the relay, 10 k or the fun run. Need to start training.
