Seawall Half Marathon

Three of my besties and I ran our first half marathon this weekend in Galveston. The weather forecast was projected to be nothing less than perfect, however I think the heat index was slightly higher than we expected. I was so sore after the race and after 11 hours of sleep last night, I think I have finally recovered!

We are split on the decision to ever do one again. I think Brooke is ready to sign up for her next one, Abby and I may try again next year, and Kaydi swears she is done. I am so proud of everyone and really appreciate the support of friends who called and our families who all came to show their support along the way! I don’t think I could have gotten through it without seeing the pink pom poms waiving at every three miles!

Go TEAM CHLOE!!!
