I Did It!

Wahoo! I get teary eyed just thinking about it. I had a huge milestone in my physical/spiritual life today. I ran a 1/2 marathon. that would be 13.1 miles!!!18 months after having a baby. Without my running buddy Jenn. All the while raising 1400 dollars for a WONDERFUL organization Team in Training. There are really not words to describe how I feel today! (well besides the fact that right now everything hurts, and I can barely walk without looking like an old woman)....I can't believe that I just ran my second half marathon in my life! 8 MONTHS AFTER HAVING A BABY!Glory Glory. ANd might I say, besides my handsome hubbie Todd, Alex was the cutest cheerleader ever! I promsie I will post pics, and lots of details(mainly for you Jenn) but for now, I am fixing to amble my way upstairs for a much needed foot massage from my hubbie!
by the way, in case you are wondering. I finished the race in about 3 hours! Whaoo. 30 minutes off my goal time, but I defionatly hit a wall at mile 11! Mainly because my stomach was hurting from all the Cytomax, the energy drink they gave us. I drank alot because it was 90 DEGREES OUTSIDE! Yes. In April! I promise, I have never sweated more in my life. But I finished. glory glory glory!
Can't wait to post pics. Thanks for all your support! I love my "fans"
Glory to God. Not to me, but to his name be the glory.! He helped me do everybit of this. I can take no credit.

I too am so proud of you! I think it is wonderful that you were able to accomplish this run after having Alex and also to have raised that much $ for cancer researc! Thanks for doing this for all of us who have experienced cancer and know how important it is to find a cure! God blessed you and he is also proud of you today! Love Mama Ellis

Hey Girl! Congratulations! You have my utmost respect! I would have died after the first 1/8 of a mile! You've been so dedicated and you did so good raising the money. I enjoyed looking at all the pictures! Hope to see you soon! Take good care of your mama when she has her surgery. Larry and Jeanan are taking good care of me! Hugs and kisses to all of you! (especially Alex--sorry 'Chelle and Todd!:)
