(training stairs at Mt. Tabor)
(those are the West Hills in the far distance... a view from our training run on Mt. Tabor)
There's nothing like seeing the finish line after a run like that. We both finished strong, but were glad when it was done. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I got super sick afterwards. Seriously miserable. I wasn't hydrated enough and didn't anticipate the race would only have 2 water stations. I learned my lesson: Next time, it's a water belt and electrolytes for this girl ;)
I must say: I ADORED the training for it. This sounds strange. But it allowed Jeremy and I to get outside in nature, spend time together and get in good shape! It was awesome to feel prepared for our race. We both say it often: it's one of our absolutely favorite things to do together... to run together. I loved training with you babe!
We got the chance to do our 10 mile training run at our lake cabin in Washington... it was brutal because it was hot... beautiful because it was at the lake.
Tired but proud
Loved, loved my summer training runs through Mt. Tabor. Nothing like alone time, prayer time and running time all wrapped in one.
I love this picture with my love. But this run was hard. I was sick all day but dragged myself out to do our final training run before our race. Tryon Creek was just 1 more stunning run Oregon had to offer.
In the end, I finished not too long after my rockstar husband and we both finished under 2 hours.
