Haunted Half Marathon 2014

My sister Jessica and I decided to run another half marathon. Two years ago we did the Halloween half, this year we did the Haunted one. It was great and I'm really glad we did it, but I had stopped training when we decided to move so I was NOT nearly as prepared for this one as I was for the last. I had only gotten up to 8 miles before I quit training. It worked out okay though. I ended up running the first 8 then walking/running the last 5. The whole race took me about 20 minutes longer than last time. Not bad considering I hadn't run even once in about 5 weeks leading up to the race. 

Our sister Laura also participated in the fun and did the 5k. We were so proud of ourselves for completing the races. My sweet, sweet, husband met me at the end with my kiddos. I'm really happy they were there to support me. He got a video of me running across the line and Lila cheering for me. I loved it!

We dressed up as fairy godmothers because it was easy and we pretty much had all the stuff. 

Laura actually had a different medal (you can see it in the pictures) for the 5k but then a half marathoner asked her to trade so now she matches us. :) 

All of us at my mum's house after the race.

It was hard! I'm still sore... but it was GREAT!
