another 13.1 in the books

We have trained and run the BCS Half Marathon in Bryan/College Station the past two years (this year marked our 3rd).

Having lived with (sometimes debilitating) chronic back pain since I was 14, this is a big accomplishment for me.  Even though this was my 3rd half, the shock never wears off that my body can support me in this.  I fight tears every time I step up to the starting line. 

This is my not-by-blood-big-brother Eddie.  I had told Kahler to run without me, to see how fast he could finish (I'm no Speedy Gonzales). I honestly had a hard time telling him that. 13.1 miles is a LONG way to run, let alone by yourself!  Around mile 4, this guy showed up and oh, what a blessing that was!  We ended up running the next 6 or 7 miles together, catching up on life over the past 4 years.

Eddie pushed me harder than I probably would have pushed myself, resulting in my own PR- whoop!

Love this dude and that he has joined me in this little running adventure of ours.  I can't wait to see where this takes us next!
