I’m going to tell you a little story. Last weekend I went to Iowa City to hang out with friends. The weather wasn’t great, but we Hawkeyes make the most with what we’re given. We don’t let rain ruin our cookouts.
I normally only go back to Iowa City during football season, so it was nice to have more time to peruse around town this time.
And I’ll tell you what…this route was ridiculously hilly. I absolutely hate hills.
But on the bright side, this beautiful structure came into sight at mile 12.
And then this at mile 12.5…which gave me a huge kick at the end.
So I finished another half marathon and crossed my 5th state off my half marathon list. Iowa–check.
Shortly after, the girls all finished!
So proud of these ladies on finishing their first half marathon!
Oh…and I finally completed one major running goal: Run a sub 2-hour half marathon. And I did it by ONE second might I add.
