The first part of August has managed to fly by without me posting any blog updates. We have all been busy and trying to enjoy the last few weeks of summer! Hard to believe that we are going back to school already!

I turned in early though and stayed in a hotel in the city because the next day I ran my first ever Half Marathon. I ran the Rock n Roll Half which was a fantastic race. There are local live bands all along the course which helps keep your feet moving. Plus, the race was very well run and extremely organized. Chris brought the kids in to the city to watch the race. I was able to see them at mile 7 and then again at the finish. Here's Ian with the skyline in the background.

My finish time was 2:17 which was slower than I wanted, but I am focusing on the fact that I ran 13.1 miles and crossed the finish line. But I'm already thinking about my next Half so I can beat my time!
