Moms Out Running Everywhere- This blog is for moms to discuss the everyday challenges and rewards of running and being a mom. It is also a reminder to us that there is MORE to us than being moms. We come together with different backgrounds, beliefs, experiences, but we share a common goal, to somehow fit running into our busy lives.

Okay, we've done a lot of half marathons, but I have to say this was pretty tough. I knew it would be hilly, but I didn't think that hill at mile 3 would last that long. I did actually take the time to take in the scenery on this race, probably because I was running so slow. It was a beautiful course and the weather could not have been more perfect! I really appreciate the fact that my friends are always game when it comes to trying a new race. I just wish my friends and I could have stayed together longer. It was sort of lonely running 12 miles by myself. Even a couple of our husbands ran the 10K. Now that we've worked so hard, it's time to celebrate Bonnie's birthday!
I just love this picture of us. This was our last running "event" where we were all present. Life has been pretty hectic with kids going off to college, some of us going back to work full-time,some of us adding more to our families, but through it all we have managed to keep on running. Its not as often as we'd like, but it does happen once in a while. I think I treasure this picture so much because it was such an awesome day for a run, we were all there, and we look like we are ready to tackle the world.
