Eric was out of town on a men's retreat, so Chi Hai so graciously flew out with the twins to hang out with my two rugrats while I ran. She even accompanied me to a Zumba event the night before.

The race was more challenging that I had trained for. While the town where I live is full of hills, the race had a massive incline towards the end. But I kept at it and finished in about 2 and a half hours. Which is probably an hour faster than the last race that I ran.

Training was time consuming and of course tiresome, but with the support of my family, I was able to accomplish a goal that I had put on the back burner. While I would never consider myself a runner, there were times when running felt freeing and therapeutic. So much so, that I have signed up for another race in Aspen this fall!
