Look who just earned another medal…
You might recall that I finished my latest Beachbody program on Saturday, and since then, I’ve been working really hard to catch up on the virtual races that I’ve had medals and t-shirts sitting around for the last few months.
The Half-Blood Prince Half Marathon was sponsored by the Hogwarts Running Club. I’ll admit that I was very intimidated by the distance and knew, right away, that I wouldn’t be able to knock it out in one day.
I ran the first leg in June, but then life happened…as in summer life…high temperatures and high humidity, and I just couldn’t seem to get out and run.
Until this week.
I was going to run the final leg yesterday, but my legs were really sore from running Sunday through Wednesday, so I decided to give myself the day off.
Today was the day, though.
I knew I needed to run 4.2 miles to complete the distance, so I set out, a route in mind.
Remember the last race I did…on Tuesday with my friend, Rebecca? I’d run 3.1 miles straight and considered that a small victory.
Guess how much I ran today?
Out of the 4.5 miles, I ran 4 of them!!!! I only walked the first half mile to warm up!!!
Y’all, can you tell that I’m a little excited????
I’ve been setting goals for myself, and by the grace of God, a lot of hard work, and a can-do attitude, I’m reaching them!
The Mr. kindly took a few photos of me to capture the moment.
That’s the race shirt, which I wouldn’t wear before finishing this race. Here’s the back…
He even got a close-up. He knows I like my pictures.
Here’s the medal up close.
I love that my running club pays attention to details. Check out the back of the medal…
Even on the mailing labels that accompany each medal, much thought and care is given…
I just love, love, love the message. Truly, anything is possible. All you need is the courage to take the first step.
