our san francisco half marathon

as some of you may know, i am currently training for the new york marathon.  oh, and planning a wedding.  oh, and fundraising $6,000 for cancer research for the marathon with my cousin.  oh, and i have to raise it all by end of august... no big deal, right?  what the @#$% was i thinking!!!  (if interested in learning about the fundraiser, please click here http://mskcc.convio.net/goto/courtneyandjacinrun!!)

so with this being said, yesterday i ran my first half marathon of the year and i convinced pat to run it with me.  he was hesitant at first but it was fun training together because we pushed each other along the way.  well yesterday for once it was 90 degrees in san francisco and with the hills and beating sun, the race was extremely challenging!  but, we did it!  oh, and the coolest part was, at the end, we got to run in to AT&T park (SF Giants baseball stadium) and they announced your name and you got to run over home plate.  that's pretty much the reason we ran, haha!

horrendous personal photo, not sure why i'm sharing this.  oh and PS i had awesome sports bra and iPod armband tan lines after!

  2. Congrats on running the half marathon! Thats a really big deal! And now that you've gotten over this hill you can get over the hill of your invites! Because that is what it feels like! Are you making them at home or just ordering them and putting them together? What a strong woman you are! Thats so great you did this together! ♥
