Day of firsts....
Today I ran in my first official run. It was a glorious day for a run, too! I ran in the marathon relay with 4 other people-Carla, Bradi, Tara, and Stephen. I got up at well before dawn to catch a shuttle by 5:00 am to take me to my leg of the race. The race started at 7:00am, but I didn't start running my 6 miles until about 8:30am. After my leg, I hopped on the bus and made my way back to town where I waited with Carla until her husband, Stephen, came into view, then we jumped back onto the course and crossed the finish line. It was really a great feeling to know that I had accomplished this. Bradi and Tara actually took it a step further and ran an additional leg-in fact, Tara ended up running a half marathon and Bradi ran 8 miles. It makes me excited to get signed up for a half marathon. Back in December I had tried to get into the half marathon, but it was full, so that's when Carla suggested the relay, and I named it: TEAM LEFTOVERS. It was quite exhilerating to hear the announcer say that as we crossed the finish line and received our COOL medals. I know, I am a dork. Great job gals...and Stephen!
