The Halloween Half Marathon...WHEW!!!

From M and M Kemp 2
So I am going to preface this with...I wasn't going to post about this...but Mike made me promise...so hear goes!

My awesome sister in law Emery and I decided to be crazy and run the Halloween Half Marathon! The key word being CRAZY!!! Well...we did it! Dressed as "Thing 1 & Thing 2" We ran our tails off...froze our buns off...and are half dead to prove it! But I wouldn't change a thing! Love ya Em!!!



Emery Rocked it! Running her first half marathon ever in 1 hour & 49 minutes...Go Em!!!

Mike was the best husband ever...packing up the two kids, camera and fighting the crowd just to see me run by for 10 seconds...isn't he amazing! He also surprised us by bringing the camera and getting a few shots! I just love you! I was able to beat my time from last year by 9 minutes...making my final time 1 hour and 55 minutes! I was elated! And couldn't believe it!




These are the faces of victory...or craziness...not knowing the pain we would feel the following day!

Not only did Mike and the kids come to cheer us on...but my cute mom and dad surprised me as well! It meant the world. Love you guys!
