In soccer, a hat-trick is when you make three goals in one game.
I'm not Ty...so...this wasn't exactly what I did.
I did run my first 1/2 MARATHON!
(You can just see me and Brooke's heads behind the girl in red)
The last .5 mile runway was just packed with people
lining both sides. There were just under 3,000 runners and
lots and lots of friends and fans.
We finished in 2:03:27 and
ran the WHOLE 13.1 miles!
Chugged a water bottle then
immediately fell to the ground.
It was so fun to have my roommate to run next to
and pace with me.
This had been a New Years resolution and something
I've wanted to do for SO long.
Seriously, it was one of the most fun physical
activity things I've done. Running through the canyon
with all the leaves on the trees and ground, snow on the
mountain tops, and 3,000 fellow runners
all around me (some very much in costume, since
it was halloween and all)...
At one point I turned off my ipod and just listened
to the river we were running along and the
rhythmic pounding of thousands of shoes
on the pavement.
Three of our friends came to cheer us on.
Then I went to Ky's to watch the Giants game
while she got ready for a party.
Let's just say I was a little too tired to join her.
So instead of partying, I went home and made
a casserole with Kaitlin and Trevs....
and then homemade Oreos with orange frosting...
and then peanut butter bars...
and then...just kidding.
So my day was a three fold plus, or hat-trick!
Marathon, friends, and cooking.
~Can't wait for my next run~
