A few weeks ago, I achieved my goal - to run my first 1/2 marathon!

It was awesome..... I finished in 2:02! My goal was 2:05 and a stretch goal of 2 hours. So I was right on - and I felt great running!

As a family, we travelled to Chicago and had a blast exploring the city. We celebrated the Black Hawk watching the parade from our hotel window (with every other Chicago resident). It was crazy, and the kids loved all the excitment.

Went to a Chicago Cubs Game

I was lucky to have a friend in crime during the race and training. We did not run together as we had different training techniques, but it was great to have someone to hang out with before the race, and to celebrate our finish. Thanks Kim!

The kids picked up their friendships from summer's past. Little C still talks about Keaton and Pierson and when he will see them next! He can't wait to go to Ontario and see his friends.

It was a great weekend! Now, onto training for the next event - a triathalon
