13.1


For the past few months some of my family and friends have been training for the Salt Lake City Half Marathon. It has been hard work, but a lot of fun. Yesterday was the culmination of all of our training, The Race! It was such a great experience. It was so fun to run with so many people that I love so much! It was hard, but worth it. It is amazing what you can accomplish when you put your mind to it. It made me think about goals, and what we are capable of. When I have a set idea of something that I want to accomplish, and I commit myself to a goal I am 100% more likely to accomplish that goal, than if I simply said, "oh i'd like to do that." Set a goal for yourself, and find a way to make it happen. You can do anything! Thanks to Ben for training with me, and to my family for keeping me motivated. Way to go! We did it!!! now on to the full marathon... ;)

It was so awesome to run with everyone. Denny has a great analogy of the race comparing it to life. Talk to him about it. I had so much energy the whole race and it was totally because everywhere I looked someone was there to push me along. Are you in for St. George? I am debating???
