Big Race Day - ORANGE COUNTY HALF MARATHON!!

This day was so huge for our team. It was the last race before we venture into intense LA Marathon training - the OC Half Marathon!

A few notable points - God is good!! It was forecasted to rain like a mofo this weekend, and a lot of us were really upset. It rained the entire night before, on the way to the race, and up until a few minutes before we started! It stayed DRY until just a few minutes after Aline finished. I couldn't believe it. We ran injury free and had a great race, despite the uphill grade from about mile 10 onward.

Special thanks to our husbands and friends that supported us along the course and that were there at the finish line, and to Kate, Jon and Ringo for making their way out for us! Jess - we missed you out there!

Thanks to everyone for all your support so far. LA HERE WE COME!!

Adrenaline was high at 630am
