Marathon Weekend

Last weekend was the big marathon weekend here.  Friday, my best friend, Kacee, arrived and we went for pedicures after school.  That night was the 5K.  I had a group at school doing the 5K this year.  We have been planning and getting ready for months.  The students I work with I special needs and this isn't something they've done before.  Kacee came along and it was fun to introduce her to my kids and have her see what I do everyday. We had t-shirts made that said R.I.S.K.  It stands for running in-spired kids and of course we've also been talking about taking a risk.  It was a great night and they all crossed the finish line and got their medals.  They were a pretty big deal on Monday wearing their medals!  I am so proud of them.  

Saturday morning I ran the half marathon.  This was my 6th half and I finished in 2 hours 34 minutes, which isn't my best time, but about what I was expecting for the amount of training I got in with the house stuff going on.  I felt good though.  I went for bloody mary's and bingo after the race with my husband and his parents.  Kacee and I went out later that night to celebrate.  I didn't take many pictures, but here are a couple.
