Half-Marathon Fun

by Ashley on April 24, 2012

Hi there! I hope your week is off to a good start!  Time is flying down here! One large project, two tests, a few assignments, one practicum rotation, two presentations, a little bit of research, and three finals stand between me and graduation! But who’s counting down? HARD. TO. BELIEVE.

This past weekend, as you’ve read, myself and three others ran the ZOOMA half-marathon up at Lake Lanier in efforts to bring awareness to stop Child Sex Trafficking. We had an awesome time, even with all of the hills that this “flat course” served up! The weather was perfect (maybe a little chilly after as you can see below) and my body felt pretty good.

Yes, that is the table cloth.

I ran it in 1 hr and 53 minutes, a little slower than I hoped, but I’m still very pleased with that time considering it is my PR.

Trying to snap a shot of all three of us, less than a mile in. Maybe this is why I was a little slower than I hoped haha

After the race 🙂

Dustin and I had an awesome trip home; we got to visit with his family Friday night, his grandmother Saturday morning, my grandfather, who is currently in the hospital right now (prayers please!) but hopefully recovering quickly, my family and great friends Saturday evening and then enjoyed the race on Sunday morning. It was a quick but wonderful trip.  Time really does fly when you’re having fun.

Anyways, just wanted to check in! I’m off to a meeting, class, and then am teaching tonight.  Hope you all have an awesome day!

Good health!
