Provo Canyon 1/2 Marathon (August 8, 2009)

My fabulous friends in Omaha are all runners... and they got me running too. We all decided to sign up for the Provo 1/2 marathon. I did it so I knew an exact date i would see allie and shauna, and so i would stay motivated to run all summer. somehow i suckered kristina in to do it with me!! we had to get up at 4:30am on saturday morning. the first pic i took of us... kristina wasn't fully awake yet, and i was a bit to chipper for 5 in the morning! ha ha we started laughing so hard when we looked at it. so...

we had to do a retake. kristina wanted to make sure her eyes were opened! ha ha ha we really started laughing at this point. i bet everyone in the parking lot thought we were insane!

Kristina was awesome and ran the first mile with me, but i could tell she was slowing up for me so i said, "go for it. i want you to do your best." so she took off!! our goal was to a) finish and b) finish in 2:20:00. kristina finished in 1:59:00, and i finished in 2:19:00 and we both ran the whole thing without walking once. when i was finished i was thinking, "that sucked... i'm never doing that again!" but now i'm ready to sign up for another one. i want to do it faster and be in better shape so it's not as painful!!
