The City of Oaks Half Marathon

Happy Sunday My Loves!!

This morning was quite possibly the best race experience ever!:

*This was my first race back since my (last) stress fracture. It solidified that I nailed my recovery in that bleepin boot.
*My two great friends Pauline and Pam pr'd massively with a little help from yours truly. Pacer Satisfaction!!
*Seeing 200 of my best running friends at once.
*OMG, crowd support! I LOVE you guys! I heard:

"I read your blog!!!"                                                                                
"I see you on greenway every morning!!"                                                                                  
"LABELLA!"

*I was able to meet another blogger friend TP!!
*2 of my equally hard core friends Marty and John "jumped on" the full and laid out mid 3's.I guess it's possible ; )

That stuff is so cool. Thank you for every fist pump and shout out. It's a runner's dream to hear that.  I spent last weekend screaming my lungs out for friends at a half iron. It was so nice to get it back!! xoxo

Here are some great pics taken by some of my friends. Thank you so much!


This happened a lot. My friends were busting ass. We appreciated the support!
Yes, I don't mind asking my friends to jump in and take our picture. Thanks B!  
The pre race posse!
We have paced this race for a few years. It always gets better!
I've been waiting for this all year!!

Thank you all for making my day! I will see you on Greenway in the morning!

XOXO
