2019 Green 6.2 Recap

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

This year we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Houston's Green 6.2 Run/Walk race. I've been running this race since 2003. It was my first Texas race so it holds a special place in my heart. 

This year, for the first time ever, I went by myself. My family was resting. We had a big Easter weekend ahead. 

I picked up my packet and made it back for my running group's photo. 

My goal this year was to enjoy the course. I didn't want to get anywhere close to my PR. The goal was to simply enjoy the day. Enjoying I did. My chins were painful at the end so I did some walking. I wondered what was wrong. I wore high heels AND RAN IN THEM the night before, so there you go.

I found the encouragement I needed to finish in myself and through the other runners. No matter what happened, I was excited to get to the finish line.

this is what happened when I saw my friends
The swag at the finish line was nice. This race always gives you your shirt ahead of time. The medal for this year is really beautiful. I enjoyed a breakfast taco at the finish.

I am always thankful to God for allowing me to run and arrive at the finish line.  

So this me, year seven of running the Green 6.2 race. I am thankful to God for the opportunity. Oh, my time was 1:15:15. Not my fastest or slowest. Definitely my happiest until the next.
