...And FRANKLY, that is all that matters! Shellie and I decided since we are either crazy, or nuts - who knows, we would do another half marathon. This "Other Half" in Moab seemed beautiful and scenic, so why not? Basically that is all it was - scenic! What a rough 13 miles - hills, heat, and no supporters along the way. I was in hopes that our alarms wouldn't go off in the morning, but sure enough they did! Shellie and I decided the night before to drive the route to see what we would be up against. Well, we drove the wrong route and were surprised in the morning when we rode the buses to the starting line. We popped our "5 Hour Energy" got to the starting line and began our non timed race - lame! I had told Shellie I was walking the race, and sure enough I did! Finished in just over 3 hours, but I met some awesome people along the way and enjoyed the view as I visited with my new running/walking partners. However, I did run the last mile so it looked like I ran the whole thing - you know it! Even at the finish line when they were handing out metals I was like, "I still get one even after three hours?" Sure DO! I would like to thank our cheer squad: Jessie, Lucas, and Legacy. Thanks for hanging out at the end to watch us run through the finish line - you are the real troopers here!
