I just had to share with you a huge accomplishment! Because you are my girls!
I cannot believe I am even saying this, but I ran in the Papa Johns’ 10 Miler in Louisville, KY today!
That is insane!
There were over 9,000 participants. Such an exciting atmosphere!
It was only 42 degrees out, so we had to dress warmly.
After the first couple of miles, I felt fine.

We stayed at a hotel on Friday night, and my sister kept the boys for us. (Thanks, Lou!)
We stayed up until midnight rooting on our Cats who beat #1 seed Ohio State…GO BIG BLUE!!!
Then we got up at 5:00 am for the race. I was seriously thinking I had lost my mind at that point.
Cy finished in an hour and 24 minutes, and I finished in an hour and 47 minutes. I was just hoping for around 2 hours, so I beat my goal. Yeah!!
This was such a huge accomplishment for me because I am not a runner.
If you missed the post from last summer where I wrote about how much I hate to run, you need to read it.
I’m still not crazy about running, but there is something satisfying about it.
The best part of running for me has been doing something I never thought I could do.
I’ve pushed myself beyond my expectations, and it feels so good.
If you had asked me last year if I would ever run a 10 miler, I would have immediately said, “Heck no!”
Cause I didn’t think I could.
But I can.
And I did!
If I can do it, anyone can do it.
Now I might even consider doing a half-marathon. I know…I’m crazy!
Well,that’s it. I just had to share this with you because I was so excited.
I’ve got a great giveaway on Monday that I am so excited about, so be sure to stop back by.
Have a blessed Sunday, friends!
