I did it!

Finished. I did it. We did it. It was awesome. Here I am with running partner and friend, Jessica. Full details layer. After I finish my school work, spend time with my mom, and recover.

This is a drawing of my "pretty pink toes" created by one if my little darlings.

Oddly enough, I can actually see the resemblance.

March Madness...

My half marathon is in 5 days. EEEK!
{Holy crap. I cannot believe it} 

{That's me ROCKIN' my ostrich t-shirt}

An ostrich?! Yup. You see.. during a training run (of 12 freaking miles) running buddy Jessica and I happened to run (pun intended, duh!) across an ostrich. Technically it was an emu, but I was scared to death so I couldn't quite make out the difference. I proceeded to run for my mother loving life because I'm scared to high heavens of any animal that could even look like it might want to fly (i.e. has wings) and this was just the biggest darn bird I'd ever laid eyes on. Jessica informed me I ran faster than she's ever seen me run and she was all like, "I'm going to pretend I'm an ostrich and chase you so you'll run fast for the half". While I was all like, "I'd freaking run from you if you were an ostrich!" It was in those tender moments that the idea of an ostrich shirt was born.

I set off to find an ostrich shirt. And boy did I ever find one. Thankyouverymuch, Etsy! He's pretty darn cute. The initials are in memory of our fathers, as we both lost our dads at a young age. It was a great way to  make a statement and treasure the memories of our dads. It is very important to both of us that our fathers are part of such a big day in our lives. The back of my shirt says, "I'm running from the ostrich" and Jessica's says, "I am the ostrich".

Yeah. We're pretty awesome.

I pinky promise to post pictures after the race. Assuming I don't die. Or get trampled by an ostrich.
