My sister, Juli came up to cheer us on too. I'm holding her stomach because my niece/nephew is in there.
I did it!
If you've been keeping up with THE BROWN BLOG, you've read that I've been training to run a half marathon. My brother, Joey, ran it as well. We ran in the Helvetia Half Marathon, which spans 13.1 miles of country road in the suburb of Hillsboro, Oregon. A beautiful run, filled with challenging hills, gorgeous countryside, and miles of sprawling farmlands. My goal was to finish. My secondary goal was to not be the last person to finish. I was successful at both. It was the toughest thing I've ever done physically to date. But it was worth the feeling of knowing that I had trained, I had done the hard work beforehand, and I accomplished what I set out to do.
