|Driving downtown. I love the sunrise in the city of Houston.|
Hello friends! I'm so thankful to God that I am still faithful to marathon training in the midst of this busy season of the year. These past few weeks required a lot of extra off line time from me and I made sure to put my family first and get all we needed to get done. Fitting in runs was no joke but I got it done.
Last week some of my friends ran the last Warm Up series race before the marathon and a few of us got our run the Saturday before. It was hot that day but we got it done. Today, my husband and I were invited to run Houston's 12K of Christmas downtown. It was my first time running and my husband's second. I had never ran a 12k before so I really enjoyed my first experience.
|Santa came to the race! Too cool.|
|What a view! I love the city of Houston.|
|I'm super proud of Zeke!|
When I saw the finish line, I asked myself "self, should you speed to the end?" My self said "No." So I kept that same pace. I was happy with my time.
|Not bad for a first 12K|
|Such a happy race!|
Today I am thankful to God that at the end of a super busy stretch of weeks we got to run. I'm thankful for 24 (plus) weeks of training. I'm eager to run the Chevron Houston Marathon in exactly 28 days. Keep praying for us!
