13.1 miles later

I did it!  I ran my first half marathon!!!!!!!!  Wow, the feeling you get as you cross that finish line is so worth the time and effort put into preparing for it.  
I was told after I ran my first one that I would be addicted and its true-I can't wait to run the next one.  I'm hoping to do the Great Lakes Marathon in August with my dad and my brothers...we'll see!
Also later that day I was able to meet up with one of my really good friends, Laura.  I hadn't seen her in a long time and it was sooo good catching up with her.  I've known Laura since I was ten when she moved to Wisconsin and a million sleepovers, a road trip to Vegas/Newport Beach, and a plethura (a Laura word) of french toast parties later, we have become more like sisters.  I feel so blessed to be able to call her my friend and am grateful for the MANY times she has been there for me.  Thanks Laura for all you do and are!
