10k Hotcake Hussle!

Okay this is a late post about my 10K run on sat the 14th of January but I wanted to post about it.!

This go around Lance ran a 5k and I did the 10K which I was ahead of him on that run when he caught up to me just before the 5k goes to the finish line and 10k makes their second loop. and thats when I thought to myself " Brit why didn't you just sign up for the 5k! you'd be done by now!" and I headed towards the loop. after mile 5 my nose was just not letting me breathe so I did what I had to...I blew my nose into my sweater. gross i know but I had to breathe! lol and then I finished the race in 1:19 minutes 4 minutes over the time I wanted to finish but I'm proud of my 1:19. It felt amazing to be in a race again and I love that I didn't feel like death or wanted to die! lol  I am excited for my Marathon in April! Still have more training to go of course but still super excited for it!! :) I'm very happy and excited that I started working out and eating better last September I'm Grateful for WLB for the encouragement I got there and for the support of my sweet hubby and Family and friends :) 

It feels good to feel healthy :)

I found your blog on Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope. I am very sorry for your loss. I too lost my baby, Lily Katherine, who was stillborn at fullterm on March 16, 2010. Although I wish nobody else had to know this pain, it's good to know I'm not alone and there are people who "get it." I'd love to have you follow along on my blog as well: www.roseandherlily.blogspot.com

Blessings, Hannah Rose

Brittany!! Hello? Holly mamma cakes! Geez I need to get crackin! I just started running (which I pretty much ahve always hated) about 2 months ago. 3 miles still kills me so I have a while before any 10K but that is AWESOME! I am excited for you! You are inspirational and just such a great person! I wish we got to hang out more before we both moved in opposite directions!
