Bridge The Gap 2016!

Well, I DID IT!

 

I have not run much in the last couple of years.  And, YES, I mean I did not train well for this race.  But I committed to 2 AMAZING friends that I would do it, and although I was really afraid that I would hold them back, I did my best to keep the encouragement going!

Some of my students and friends did the 5k, some did the 10k, some the Half-Marathon, some volunteered, and 3 of us did the Half-Marathon TOGETHER!  We leap frogged around a bit here and there, but we finished TOGETHER!!!  We finished in 3 hours and 4 minutes!!!  For 3 girls with MANY physical issues, that is freaking AWESOME!!!

And my Olympic HERO and a woman that, although we aren’t like “call each other daily” close, I am HONORED to call My Friend, was once again passing out the medals at this amazing small town Half-Marathon in Quincy, IL.  Jackie Joyner-Kersee put a medal around each of our necks and was kind enough to take a pic with me and all my students!

To say I LOVE My Life right now, would be an understatement!

Thank You EVERYONE who made this an AMAZING day!
