Provo River Half Marathon

This last Saturday I ran my second half marathon. Which is 13.1 miles. What an amazing accomplishment. We worked hard all summer long to train, and it finally paid off! My parents, neighbor Kim, Aunt Cari, and her friend Sabrina all finished the race. My mom, Sabrina, Cari, me, and Kim
Dad, Sabrina, Cari, Me, and Paul

My dad was cute and ran with my mom as she was getting ready to finish. He was such a huge support to her and was cheering her on the whole way.
My time was 2 hours and 2 minutes. I ran the whole thing with my Aunt Cari. She was great and pushed me the whole way. The last mile was the hardest. I was ready to be done, but she just kept pushing me. My grandpa was a huge runner, and loved it. Earlier in the race Cari said that he was running with my dad, but would be back to finish the race with us. Our last mile we turned the corner and Cari looked at me and said," my dad is here with us". I never met my grandpa, but I know that he was with us that day. He gave me that extra stregnth that I needed to finish out the last mile. It was amazing to feel of his love and spirit with us. I am so grateful for being able to have the stregnth to accomplish my goal, and to do it with such great people!!
