Kelly let me sign us up for the runners series.&nbsp; I would like to run again next year. &nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>As for this race. The start was good.&nbsp; Everything seemed fine up to Veyo. About the middle of the hill I started feeling yuck.&nbsp; So we did a run walk up the remainder of the hill.&nbsp; Something I have noticed this year is I have been having a very hard time going up hills.&nbsp; It's like I have a hard time breathing.&nbsp; Things just got worse for me from there for me.&nbsp; Kelly was awesome.&nbsp; She kept us going.&nbsp; So many times I was ready to quit, but she stayed strong.</p><p>About mile 16 we picked up a kid that was having a hard time.&nbsp; Seemed like we were playing leap frog for 2-3 miles prior to that.&nbsp; He stayed with us to the end.&nbsp; Once we crossed the finish line we never saw him again.&nbsp; </p><p>I had a good time.&nbsp; I am very proud of Kelly for running her first marathon, and dragging me with her.&nbsp; I'll have figure out what my problem is.&nbsp; </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Happy running!<br /></p> Sat, 01 Oct 2011 06:00:00
