Today was the big day. At 6:00 a.m. we walked down to Crown Center in a dark, cold drizzle and the girls took off on their runs at 7:00. I headed for a warmer climate inside and got to sit and knit for almost five hours until it was time to cheer them on at the end of the finish line. It was so inspiring to watch my friends conquer the elements, hills and for some pain to finish their race, relay, half marathon and full marathon. Now I'm motivated to add running a half marathon to my bucket list someday.
