Sunday- the Half











































So this felt pretty amazing. Yesterday I was wiped out from the run, the adrenaline, and the emotion. Today, I feel totally jacked that we did this. If you are wondering about the tie dye- it was the Friday night carb dinner idea of Staci Jo and Court that all the supporters wear tie dye so we could see each other and because really who doesn't like tie dye? So that was the project for Friday night and I'll say they all turned out pretty good.
Something about this run that I didn't expect- Talking about running and since doing the run, quite a few people are thinking of doing it next time, either walking or running it. How cool is it that you can help people believe in themselves by doing something that you feel you are doing for you? The ripple effect. The collective energy of that many runners in one place was pretty exciting when the race started off. My word for it: buzzing!
There is already talk of the next..... Victoria in October and a training schedule in my inbox on Monday from trainer Tess?? I think a week off first. :)

Great pics Wen. Love the tye die, great idea!
I know what you mean about the "buzzing", that's the feeling I had on the 3 day walk, everyone was so pumped and excited.
You do deserve a break- at least for your ankle's sake!
Take Care!!
Love you!

You are amazing sweetie, so happy for you and love the photos!

I was training for the Victoria run (8 miles a day, 7 days a week) when my Saab met with sudden death and I couldn't walk. Remember those days?? Oh my. Seems like yesterday and a million years ago.
