My Second Half Marathon Trip

It was cold.  It was windy.  It was snowing. It was awful and awesome all at the same time.  This run was incredibly harder than last year's run--I have never seen hills this large in my whole life, EVER. I barely finished and if I ever run another half marathon it'll be in Kansas...but I did see some amazing views and had a great weekend exploring the Shaker Village in Harrodsburg, KY.  

Their history was so interesting and intriguing...but that's a whole post in itself (that I really plan on writing, I get extra credit in my CIV class for it so why not?)

Here are some pictures of our weekend getaway and the race:

As always, I want to thank my amazing mom for being with me every step of the way.  I love traveling with her--she's a great companion, friend and supporter.  I could not have done this without knowing she would be at the finish line waiting for me...even with her broken leg in the freezing cold.  I hope I'm half the mother she is someday!

Also, shoutout to my best friends and in-laws for coming over to cheer me and my friend on! It meant so much that you guys and the Palmergranate were there (don't over think the whole Palmergranate's an inside family thing).
