Five Things Friday – Five Race Memories!

I am once again joining up with Courtney (Eat, Pray, Run DC), Cynthia at You Signed Up for What and Mar at Mar on the Run for Five Things Friday link up!   I had a great time last week reading some really awesome blogs that are new to me! I can’t wait to read what everyone else has for this weeks theme!

5 Race Memories!

1. First half marathon – Houston, Oct, 2009
It was a loop course, and the third time around in the heat was not my idea of fun.  I was thankful to finish, and it helped me believe I can do anything!

2. Nashville Half Marathon, April 2010
Survived the tornadoes and terrible storms.  My friend who ran the same race finished before I did, I thought was missing! Thankfully she made it to the hotel and used twitter to say she was OK!  It was her 1st half and it was a CRAZY day!

3. Arizona Half Marathon, Jan 2011
I got to chat with my running hero Meb again! He remembered me from another race, so that was cool!

Finished the race then woke up in an ambulance!

Made it out of the hospital with just enough time to catch my flight home!

4. Disney Princess Half, Feb 2012
My FIRST time ever to Disney World!  And I was blessed to run with TEAM FREEDOM! We raised well over $50,000 for Abolition International, and helped raise awareness about human/sex trafficking!

    Great race memories! #3 is downright scary, though. Not the meeting Meb part, but the waking up in an ambulance part! Glad you were okay enough to get out of the hospital and make your flight home.

      Thank you…Yes, I agree that meeting Meb (again) was really fabulous…but landing in the hospital was not so great! I am just so thankful it was nothing really serious and I was able to make it home ok!
