I did it!

Yesterday I accomplished a goal that I set for myself while I was pregnant with the girls. Last year I ran the local half marathon and I didn't know it at the time but I was pregnant with the twins. When I was on bed rest this summer and going crazy not being able to do much of anything let alone run I decided I would make it my goal to run the same half marathon. The girls would only be 4 1/2 months old so I didn't know if it would really happen. Well I did it! It was a great morning to run and I was excited to go. I finished in 2:06. I was tired but had enough in me to sprint at the end. I am really happy about what I have done. Here's me finishing!
