On Saturday, I ran my 10 mile run with the Galloway group. It was a fun run, but the last two miles kicked my butt. I really felt the 5k I ran the day before. It didn't help that it was so hot and humid. It was still a fun run, and I got to run with a lot of new people. It is always fun to hear everyone's story!
Sunday, the weather was amazing, and I wanted to go run. But it was a rest day, and I forced myself to take it easy. Church was busy and hectic as normal. Our three kids keep us on our toes. Then we had a good time at my parents' house for dinner.
Monday was Jenn's first half marathon ever. The weather was amazing, and the course was flat. You could not ask for better conditions. We talked to Shannon from Nixa Running and tried to see who Jenn could run with to maintain a good pace. This was her first long race, and she didn't want to go out too fast. She really ended up running by herself but did an okay job pacing herself. She did the race in 1:46:15. That is AMAZING for her first half. She is going to shoot for a sub 1:40 at the Bass Pro half in November. Here is the stats from our Garmin. (She forgot to turn it off after the race.) She has only started running this last March. She is a natural! I am excited to see what we can both do in the next few years!
