The day finally came. I was actually very excited for the tutu run and to put my training to the test. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to sleep the night before but lucky for me I slept like a baby.
A before picture of Blanca and I. It was a chilly morning but luckily it didn't rain.
I felt great the first 6 miles. Even when I started getting a little tired around mile 7 I was able to keep going. Unfortunately at mile 11 I hit a terrible wall. I just wanted to stop and walk but luckily my sister helped push me and helped not give up. I had to keep saying outloud "you got this."
"you can do it."
Even though I felt a little bit like a crazy person it really did help me keep going. We finished in 2 hours and 35 minutes! I cried happy tears when we got to the end because I couldn't believe I was able to finish such a hard goal! I thought of the example I was making for my family. Especially Bella. I was so grateful for my sister for always being a good example, always encouraging me and for running with me. I was also super grateful to Doug for always helping me get my runs in even when our schedules were crazy busy. Seriously my family is awesome! Even my parents to came to support us!
