Run Bike Run
This past weekend I ran on purpose. My dear friend Lori asked if I'd join her in a duathlon for her birthday. Well, I just couldn't say no it was her BIRTHDAY! As many of you know I heart birthdays! I started training for this with the help of my good friend Laura. Laura was an amazing coach! Lori and I did the Duathlon of Dreams a charity run, bike, run for Works of Mercy. An organization that helps people with special needs. We started off running up hills and down a few for 2 miles. Then hopped on our bikes for a major climb ( right away-ugh! ) then it was just rolling hills(my favorite kind) for 11 miles. Then back to the hilly run for the last 2 miles. I did pretty well I must say for my first race. Even got a medal. Oh right everyone got a medal! Thanks to my parents for cheering us and others on! BIG Thanks to all of my friends for their loving & kind words of encouragement!
