Sublime, Truly Sublime! Today was the most perfect day to run a 1/2 marathon. Sunny, perfect Temps, clear blue sky, raging Platte river on your side, and a WONDERFUL cheering section!
The race went grand, much better than expected. I was planning on running 8 minute pace, and it was just too nice out. My body wanted to go faster! So, 7:30’s it was. Here are the mile splits: Mile 1 - 7:11 Mile 2 - 7:27 Mile 3 - 7:23 Mile 4 - 7:18 Mile 5 - 7:30 Mile 6 - 7:27 Mile 7 - 7:31 Mile 8 - 7:34 Mile 9 - 7:35 Mile 10 - 7:43 Mile 11 - 7:34 Mile 12 - 7:41 Mile 13 - 7:44 0.1 finish - 0:42

Lindsay also did phenomenal, beating her goal of 2 hours by 1.5 minutes. She looked great at the finish, like she hadn’t even been running!
Troy, Chris, and Lindsay's husband Doug were out there on the bikes cheering for us...AND toting the babies along with them. We are so blessed to have such wonderful husbands and friends who support us in our endeavors. We love them!!!
Wonderful experience, I am a lucky woman.
