|HOLY SMOKES that's early!|
|Brynne is a morning person - she was WAY too excited haha|
|And I felt like a zombie haha!|
|The line of porta-potties|
|ALL those people were waiting in line! Crazy!!|
|Getting ready to start the race!|
|Sitting down for our pre race ritual - watching our YouTube Video and saying a prayer together.|
|LOVE this video!!|
We got our music going, and started our fast walk.
|Being in the back made it so that we saw JUST HOW many people there were in the race!|
|These pictures just don't do justice - there were SO many people!!|
My feet hurt.
My back hurt.
My legs hurt.
My knees hurt.
And we were WALKING!
By mile 9 we had to slow down a bit - my knees were throbbing. And then it'd pass and we'd walk as fast as we could until something else starting hurting. Throughout the whole race, it was only body parts - no cramping or anything indicating the baby was in distress. THANK HEAVENS!! I did feel nauseous around mile 11, so I ate my granola bar I had packed and kept going.
|We walked past LaVell Edwards Stadium around mile 12!|
Goal was to finish as close to 3 hours as possible. Missed that goal by a little bit - we ended up finishing at 3 hours 25 minutes. But we finished!
|So happy to be done!!|
|Shows part of our pace - I forgot to turn it off when I crossed the finish line.|
|Forgot to turn the time off, but the calorie burn was AMAZING!|
After the race, we hobbled out of the finish line area after getting some fruit and chocolate milk and found the car.
|I love that we are both smiling because I sure didn't feel like smiling haha!|
I am glad I did this half, even though I got sore, even though I only walked - I can now say that I accomplished a half marathon while pregnant! WOOT!!
