...and it was probably the best feeling in the world!!!
Since Steve and I decided to head back to Puerto Rico, we thought it would be good to do some fundraising to help us get there this time. So, we started brainstorming, what can we do to help raise some extra money to help us get there??? Especially with as crazy as our schedules are and with two kids in tow...And then it dawned on me...why not run the Country Music 1/2 Marathon and have folks sponsor us. There's a website, which I'm sure many of you know about, www.gofundme.org. It allows you to set up an account/blog and folks can log on and donate funds via a secured website.
So, we set it up and started training. My awesome friend, Holly, decided to train with me for some extra support. So, 16 weeks of running 3-4 times per week started in February. And on April 27th, we did it!
And the day after - we proudly wore our medals!!! We were so exhausted! But Ronnie, our friend in the middle, is a beast! He ran the full marathon!!!! I think I'll stick to 13.1!!!
