Look who I ran into in Dallas! I'm sure it's 5 o'clock somewhere!
The next day we decided to spend some time at California Adventure. Because of course that's what you do the day before a half marathon that you totally haven't trained for. P.S. - gorgeous weather!
Had to take a picture of Doc for Olivia!
Checked out Monster's U
And here it is friends! It was amazing.
And as we were on the way out, guess what - Parade. Darn it, I guess we will have to wait till it's over.
Then from there it was our Team Dinner. I love these ladies.
My number one reason for being there.
And this was the scene at home. This was Liv's best attempt at a smile. Apparently her hands were chapped and hurting and she needed her momma.
And I got this little jewel. Apparently a good night's sleep did her good!
Minutes before starting
Okay, I'm not going to lie. This run was not pretty. It was by far the hardest one for me yet. The 55 mph Santa Anna winds didn't help. At one point around mile 2, we passed a Wenchel's Donuts and I seriously thought about bailing and hanging in the donut shop. I could taste the coffee and donuts. But somehow I persevered. Around mile 8 we got to run through Angel's Stadium. That was kind of cool.
And then somehow I finally managed to finish the longest 13.1 miles of my life!
And I got my Coast to Coast medal too!
And then I had a Shock Top!
And then it was time to say goodbye to my dear friends. What a great weekend. Truly blessed to have found this group!
Never would I have believed that I had earned all of these medals. Who is this girl?
