Legs like Jello!
November 14, 2011

I survived my 1st HALF MARATHON!

And boy am I feelin’ it…legs like jello & feet feelin’ sprained. END RESULT = Just give me a walker and let’s call it a day. In spite of all my soreness – I LOVE this feeling. It’s not lettin’ me forget those 13.1 miles I ran for sheer enjoyment 🙂

The morning started with a chilly 34 degrees. With less than 15 minutes until race time, my mom and I parked (what felt like) a mile away – YES I’m about to run 13 miles – but I sure as heck don’t want to walk a mile afterwards to the car…we did.

Minutes before our start!

2 HOURS & 13 MINUTES later…I had run 13.1 miles & was walking on a cloud of JELLO.

Stephen met me at the Finish Line! In exhange for flowers he got a well deserved sweat-infused hug.  For the remainder of the weekend – I had my fair share of celebratory junk food, but Sunday night’s dinner trumped my chips & salsa  😉

Thank you to my future IN-LAWS for a nice & relaxing Sunday night 🙂 Nothing beats ending this weekend like a glass of red wine, steak on the grill, and little Frank Sinatra.

Skirt Steak, Diced Red Potatoes, & Fresh Asparagus ~ So good!

After eating a DEE-licious dinner and reminiscing over childhood stories, we clanked our glasses and said cheers with Chocolate GODIVA Vodka – And Oh my gawd that was the cherry on top of a fantastic weekend 🙂

Hope you’re off to a great week ~ stay dressed to dish!
