Last weekend was a bit of a whirlwind for me. My BFF and Maid of Honor, Lindie, flew in to San Antonio on Thursday night and then Friday night we went out on the town to celebrate my bachelorette party! It was so much fun and I just love all my girls who came out and partied with us! :)

After what seemed like the longest day ever, Lindie and turned in at a respectable 8:30pm on Saturday night. The next morning though, I woke up feeling completely refreshed and full of (nervous) energy! It was my second time doing the Austin 10/20 and I was really hoping for a new PR. However, I had a bit of a mishap the previous Tuesday while playing flag football. And by mishap, I mean some b**** "accidentally" tackled me and I twisted my foot mid-tackle. Additionally, Lindie had banged her knee up about a week prior to race day so we were both feeling a little apprehensive about running 10 miles.
When Lindie and I did our first race together, Diva Dash, I made us the cutest shirts so obviously for bachelorette weekend we had to have fun shirts again!
|Our shirts were a big hit, again!|
With all of the excitement of race day and the 20(!) bands playing throughout the 10 mile course we were able to run, albeit slowly, for the whole race! I did end up with a new Personal Record, of 1:54:59 with an average pace of 11:21. Last year's time was 1:57:35 so I am very happy to have earned that new PR! Big thanks to Lindie for sticking with my slow butt and helping me run the whole way...without her I probably would have walked and not beaten last year's time.
After the race was over, we enjoyed our hard earned beers we drove back to San Antonio, with a quick pit-stop at the Lululemon outlet in San Marcos (yes, it is really awesome and cheap). But before we could go collapse on the couch, I had a softball game to play in. We got to the softball fields just before the game started only to find out that the other team did not have enough people show up and therefore had to forfeit. We scrimmaged anyway and I tried my best to run with even a smidgen of energy but I'm sure it was pathetic. With all of that activity I ended up with my most active day thus far (according to my UP band anyway).
|Nearly 18 total miles & 32k steps...say what!?|
All in all, it was a great weekend! I am so blessed to have such an amazing group of girl friends and the best MOH ever!!
|This was about 9.5 miles in, if you can't tell by my strained smile :)|
