The B.E.L.L 1/2 Marathon

We did it!!!! We've been training for a 1/2 Marathon for the past few months and we did it!! We decided that instead of signing up for a real race we would make our own. We had a cheering section and everything!! It was amazing coming down the home stretch and seeing all of our children out in the street holding toilet paper finish lines. It was sooooo fun!!
We named it the B.E.L.L. 1/2 Marathon because it was Becca, Emily, Liz and Lori-Ann. Emily, Lori-Ann and I have been running together 5 days a week early in the morning (like 5:30 or 5:45) for months. Liz's schedule was different so she trained on her own. It was fun to run with my sis though!! It's been so fun and rewarding to work really hard to accomplish a goal. We'll keep running and do some more! Way to go us!! ;) Next time we'll beat our time. It took us 2 1/2 hours to run it.

The Finish Line

The Girls with the Kiddos

Here's our Girls and kiddos tired picture!

I think this picture is hilarious...I was amazed at my vertical after running 13.1 miles! You wouldn't be able to tell I'm so short.

The Dad's and the kids

You always have to end with a funny picture!! Thanks to our Husbands and kids for all their support!! We couldn't have done this without you!!!

Wait to go!! That's so great!! I'm SOOOOO anxious to get running again and my first order of business after I have this baby is to register for a half marathon! What fun to have such a great reception at the finish line! Good for you Becca! You are amazing!

Awesome! I've been running every morning and am now looking for a half marathon to run with Albert. Cool that you made up your own.
