Steak and Legs: Half Marathoners!

Yes, that's right folks! We did it, we really did it! We ran for 13.1 miles and ended with (mostly) smiles on our faces (and a few tears of joy)!

I cannot believe I'm actually writing this post. I was the girl who dreaded the mile in gym class and would walk lap 3 of 4. I'm the girl who said "runners are crazy" and "I can't do that!" 

I want to thank Steak for putting up with this dream of mine. For running with me everyday I asked. For agreeing to run a half marathon in Florida with me despite having to work the Friday before and the Monday after. And for actually having an awesome time.

I also want to thank my beautiful family (Mom, Dad, Aunt K, Aunt J, Uncle J, Cousin M and Sister CJ) for all of your support and texts that came pouring in until 3 am on the night of our race. Thank you for signing up to get my times and cheering for me virtually. Thank you to my Aunt and Uncle and Cousin Mo for coming out on Saturday to celebrate with us before hand. It means a lot to me that you guys always make the effort to visit me. 

Thanks to Steak's family for wishing us well! For your warm and happy thoughts and your congratulations and encouragement.

And thank you to all of our friends who wished us well and thought happy thoughts!

And once again, Steak, I couldn't have done it without you! You truly make me a better person each and every day and I couldn't imagine running 13.1 miles with anyone else by my side.
