I ran a marathon in November. Cross that off the bucket list. Not entirely sure if I will ever run another one, but I am so thankful I ran it. My sweet family (mama, daddy, sister, Ford and of course my babies and Clayton) were all there to support me. I can vividly remember almost every detail. It was actually kind of awesome. It was freezing, but of course, I warmed up pretty quick. I saw Clayton and the girls pretty early and then didn't see them again until around mile 18. That was a MUCH needed pick me up. I was in a pretty dark place at that point. My knee was killing me, and I was just flat out tired. The pics start up when I saw my awesome family!
I really was about to start crying at this point... pain, exhaustion, happiness...
Sweet baby yelled and cheered so loud!
It was a long morning for Sissy
I got a bit of a second wind toward the end. It was one of those... I'm about to finish a marathon - no stopping, no walking, let's do this... kind of second winds. (The tears freely fell at this point)
Not sure how I stood back up after this position. Loved having this precious cheering squad. Best ever!
And my sister... words cannot describe. Most favorite ever!
(How did I not get a pic with my parents????)
And my biggest cheerleader of all (or should I say coach?). Love this man something fierce. He was the one who pushed me to do this in the first place.
Best Family Ever!
