A few more race pictures from Saturday!
Kel and I post-race, changing in the parking garage. We’re classy.
Two thumbs up for both our races… the thumbs up/thumbs down was a tribute to our Uncle Lyn.
Pre-race in the hotel room. Dave likes to have me pose as if I’m running. Because everybody does half marathons around their Marriott hotel room!
Let’s take a minute to talk about my race outfit. Shorts: adidas, from TJ Maxx a long time ago. They always chafe and leave a ring of scabs around my waist. Feels awesome, right? But they were my only running shorts with pockets and I wanted to carry my cell phone (to let Dave know when I was close to finishing and also just in case something happened) and my GU Chomps. Long sleeve shirt: from the Grand Rapids marathon. It’s lightweight and awesome and easily my favorite running shirt. I took it off by mile 2 and tied it around my waist. It didn’t bother me once. Shirt underneath: from the Holy Half marathon in April. It’s really light and soft and I had NO chafing. Sports bra: Champion. It chafed like crazy – the kind where you get in the shower post-race and want to cry when the water hits those spots, you know? I’ve been in denial that I probably need a new sports bra during maternity. Shoes: of course, my trusty Brooks Adrenaline!
Last picture: Kel and I pre-race, in the corral. Love this one!
I’ll be back later today with a late 25-week picture update!
