I guess they call me a runner.

I finished the race! My first half marathon and I finished all 13.1 miles. I seriously can't believe it. 

This was the gear for the day. Knee high St. Patty's socks, Sparkly Soul head wraps, and green glitter ring fingers.

Since there were 25,000 other runners, we decided to skip parking and ride the good ole Metro. This is Rachel and my excited 5am faces.

Casey and Ashley completed our running quad.

These were all the other runners that were squished in the Metro with us. Total fun.

As we were running, the hubs came to take our pics.

The sun made for some doozies of Coop, but that is the finish line in the background.

And after we all finished we met up for a photo op before limping to the car.

    2. Congrats, Molly! That is such a huge accomplishment, particularly for someone with two young kids! I am hoping to start running once I get the clear around April 15th. My sights are set on a 5 K, much less ambitious than you. ;)

    3. Congrats! 2:18 is a fantastic time, especially when you have two little babies. I'm training for one in May and it's going verrrry slow. I used to do 10 minutes miles but I'm lucky if I get 13 these days. Eeek. Oh well, I just want to finish. Looks like it was a blast!
