Chosen 1/2, we did it!!

Andy and I ran the Chosen 1/2 Marathon this morning.
The race raised money for adoption. There were some of the sweetest families out to run and cheer on.
It was the most beautiful race!! It was in Gruene, we ran along the river with trees, bridges, and lots of hills... We were in the hill country, so, I guess that was bound to happen :)
We had a handful of friends run. I hope I can walk tomorrow, I can't really straighten my legs, did I mention the hills??
Yesterday, in the midst of racing around like a wild woman cleaning the house, laundry, transporting kids and packing everyone for the night away, I thought "you know what I REALLY need to do right now is make a running visor to show why I'm running..." So, I made this Africa with fabric with a little heart over Rwanda. I was so proud and showed Caroline, she says, "seriously, mom??" Andy said the Africa looked like it had a cancer on the left side. I ran in it anyways, oh, well :)
I didn't have my camera of course, but we had a great time and it was fun for Andy and I to run together to celebrate little Drew's life.

"Lift up you eyes all around, and see;
they gather together, they come to you;
your sons shall come from far, and your daughters shall be carried on the hip.
Then you shall see and be radiant;
your heart shall thrill and exult,
because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you "
Isaiah 60:4-5

Awesome visor!! So proud of you for training and doing it and finishing strong. What I didn't realize was that it was raising money for adoption... which makes it even more awesome! Yay for you and yay for Drew!! Love that little man already. :)
