Dallas Rock and Roll 1/2 Marathon Relay

Cory and I had the chance to go to Dallas Texas for a www.transformation.com conference this weekend (I'll be sure to post more about this - it was AWESOME!!!). The culmination of the event was a 1/2 marathon. I wasn't ready to run a 1/2 but we did it as a relay. Cory was supposed to run the 1st 7 miles and then I'd finish up the last 10K. Well he was "in the zone" and decided to just keep running the whole thing. So he ran 13.1 miles!!!! (the furthest he'd run before at one time was 4 miles on the treadmill!) I was really happy with our running time and we had a great time running together. He wished my legs (or at least my stride) was a little longer - but we made it.

It was great because my brother Jed and his wife Laura live in Forney, TX - not too far from Dallas. So they came and supported us, took pictures (YAY!) and made us feel like rock-stars. We love you guys!!!

I promise - there will be more soon about the race, things I learned, and the awesome stuff from the conference.
