Way to go Kel!! You rocked those 26 miles GIRL!
So I'm running along, we had all kind of split up near the end and as I am running my last mile I look up ahead and see a shirt that looked very familiar. Our families chose to stay home as it was a 4 hour drive to the race. Well upon closer inspection, it was Brian and the kids there to cheer me on. I started to get emotional and I cried. It was the most wonderful surprise. I am totally tearing up just thinking about it again! Talk about motivation! It was awesome.
Nothing like a DQ Blizzard for a post race treat. Oddly enough my kids barely touched theirs, they must not take after mommy with this, MORE FOR ME! I love me some blizz!
So I was tired, my legs felt close to numb on the last mile, but I did get some energy boost around mile 10 so that helped me a ton. I think that if it was a few miles longer I could have done it, it was just knowing I only had to do 13 miles that made me tired on that last mile. I was definitely not as tired as my fam though. They got up at 330 to come and surprise me! So the kids zonked the whole way home.
Today was one of the cutest things I have ever seen. Natalie talks about her cousins all of the time. "Remember when we went to Disney world with BriBri?" "Remember when we went to Hawaii with Melia?" "I cant wait to play with Taylor this summer!" and so on and so on. She seriously talks about them ALL all of the time. So today I was skyping with my sis and Taylor and Natalie started to talk. Taylor asked her if she wanted to play pony's. They totally got all their pony's out and skype-played pony's together. It was so precious! I wish she could see the Miller cousins more. I feel so blessed to be near all of the Rawlins, how awesome though if she could see them all!
