Kyle and I participated in our very first half marathon on Sunday!!!! We had 3 goals: 1. to finish the race...check; 2. to run the entire 13.1 miles...CHECK!!; and 3. to finish the whole thing in under 2 and a half hours...CHECK CHECK CHECK!!!!! 2 hours, 24 minutes and 39 seconds was my official finishing time.

The real kicker?? After 2 days with aching knees - but certainly not out of commission by any means, I feel fine today - no more sore than I would feel after a good workout at the gym!

This particular event (the New Orleans Mardi Gras Marathon and half marathon) was the last full marathon my dad did - he was 50. Kyle and I were really excited to make it our first...

Here's to hoping Dad is proud of his kiddos. We miss you so...



  1. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! YAY for awesome race times and for making your dad proud. You so know he would have been. :)

  2. Congrats! I am hoping to do a half in October - amazing that you were able to put in the training time with two little ones. Finding the time has been my biggest challenge. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Great job guys! I am so excited for you both! By the way Heather you sure do look like Mary Louise in the picture or well she looks like you.
