Half Marathon

I am not a runner. In fact, I hate running.
Like I really hate it.  

I couldn't really tell you why I decided to run a half marathon, but I did.  It was kinda fun, and surprisingly not as hard as I thought I would be.  Next time, I'd actually like to do a full marathon...though you may have to scrape me off the pavement at the finish line.  I think I'll give it a try.

My mom and I did the "Shun the Sun" half marathon race in Mesa on November 13th.  It was so much fun to get to run, get free stuff, get away from the Utah cold weather, and hang out with family.

 This was about mile 1

 We got to run across home plate at Hohoken stadium to finish, where my native Chicago Cubbies practice during the winter. Here we are chillin in the dugout.

It was a great run on a perfect day.  And now I find myself looking for more races to sign up for... oh no.  If I'm not careful, I think I could actually end up enjoying this sport.

please no.
