We went to pick up our race packets on Saturday morning. Having that bib in hand does wonders….

The rest of the day consisted of Shopping, Penn-State Football watching,
um…more shopping!, and some tasty Food!

We laid out our (matching) race outfits;
I nixed the short-sleeve shirt for a tank-top.
High of 76? That’s gonna be warm….

treats

This was our post-run treat to ourselves!
My parents and Jason had to head back home (3 hr drive) –
so, Lauren and I fed the craving! Dessert? YES PLEASE.
Gets that New-Mexico food spice out of your mouth quickly….YUM.

**********

While this wasn’t my fastest or best 13.1 miles, it goes right into the top 5
because of the company and the experience of running with my Sister!

I finished….and then I finished again, with her.
SO WORTH IT.

Race report…comin’ soon!
