The Texas Half (5K)
Cowtown Marathon (5K)
You have to admit I almost look like a runner in this picture! I'm still sporting the all cotton duds and the leopard gloves, but at least I am upright crossing the finish line!
Dash Down Greenville (5K)
This was a fun race with green beer at mile one. I was actually sick at this race, but finished! I'm rocking the movie star sunglasses and shamrock bobble headband!
Zoo Run (10K)
Moving up in the mileage world! This was our first 10K! It was actually a warm day with a light drizzle rain. The only bad part was the millions of kids at the finish line blocking the water! Looking a bit hunchback and zoned out in this pic!
Heels and Hills (half marathon!)
I was totally not prepared mentally or physically for this race. My knee gave out at mile 8 & I thought I would never finish. Ended up walking a great portion of the last 5 miles!
The Mom Run
Hottest Half (10K)
So this race totally lived up to its name! I'm still sporting the rock star sunglasses and have no water of my own! They actually ran out of water the last few miles for the half marathoners! I'm quite impressed with my form in this picture!
Heels, Hills and Him (half marathon)
The Vineyard Run (5k)
By the looks of this picture, I got bored and fell asleep during this race. My feet look like they are barely moving. I was not prepared for the hills on this course and this race helped to motivate me to train more!
The Speedway Run (5K)
White Rock Lake Marathon (Relay)
The Jiggle Butt Run (5K)
A year after my first race I am injured! My first real injury! In this picture I am wearing a tutu. That is a first. I am carrying my cell phone because I was thinking about facebooking while running. I tried it, but it did not work out so well! However, even though I ran at a slow pace to baby my hamstring, I have good posture and my feet are actually moving! I have a LONG way to go, but it's great to look how far I have came in only one year!
How have you changed since your first race? What are your running goals for 2011?
