You Go Girl and keep on going

I did not plan to run You Go Girl Half Marathon this year, it is Muscle Man's birthday tomorrow so I asked him if I should skip it...apparently I heard wrong because this week he asked why I was not running it.. WHAT?

My good buddy Amy (who had a birthday on September 17th Happy Birthday friend) picked up her bib and gave it to me. FREE RACE! I asked Kerrie HERE if she wanted a pacer, she was ready to run her own race...so I texted Kim HERE. I have wanted to run with Kim since YGG last year!! We decided that we would shoot to run together for a sub 2 hour half. FUN!! Then the lovely Tressa HERE let me buy her team shirt, THANK YOU!! I opted for the Jess HERE inspired pigtails like Kerrie and we were READY TO RUN!!



I felt CUTE and so excited to go for a sub 2 hour. While trying to sleep the night before the race I realized that today marked the last day that I saw my Dad before he died, it was at a Birthday party for Muscle Man and Tall Nephew. This made me a bit teary during the race, I decided that I would PUSH for a sub 2 hour for ME, I NEEDED it.. If you must know how it turned out check out my Dailymile HERE or Facebook HERE.. Race Report to come Soon :) My Big Girl job is SUPER BUSY, so I will get it up soon...

I have a feeling your Dad is very proud of you tonight (along with every other night). I hope you had a great time! Happy (early) Birthday to Muscle Man!
