We did it!!!
Just wanted to do a quick report from Louisiana... Melissa and I ran the whole Race for the Cure. All 3.2 miles!!!! We were very pumped up and proud of ourselves for running the whole way. We started with three goals, look cute, have fun and run the whole time. We did all of those. We had matching shorts, our race shirts, pink bandanas, etc. It was a very encouraging atmosphere with people cheering all along the way. It was a great way to remember Mama and celebrate her. I know she would have been proud of us. We finished in 37 minutes exactly. We thought our time was excellent and finished amongst those who were still being timed. I think we were both a little shocked that we did it. It was a great feeling to accomplish a goal. I was almost silent and focused the whole time, but Melissa talked the whole time and took a couple of pictures. Look for those and pics from the country after we get back to St. Louis. We are already planning the next run. We are considering something tropical the weekend of her 30th birthday. All and all, I just can not beliveve we did it and I know I could not have done it with out Melissa.
