Rock On Jonas Brothers :)

OK, so Reagan thinks they rock :) ACTUALLY, they put on a great show and we got to see it live.
So, this is how it happened. My friend Christa lives in Arizona, BUT her uncle is THE man at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands. Sooooooo, while we were in Anaheim for the race, Christa mentions that she has two extra tickets for the Jonas Brothers on Saturday September 11Th. She was in town for the Dave Mathews Concert (I could write another long post about Christa's love for Dave) and can you believe no other adult family members wanted to see the Jonas Brothers. Reagan and I jumped at the chance.

We went to meet Emily and Christa for dinner and were almost at the restaurant when Christa called and said, "It we get there in 10 minutes we can meet the Jonas Brothers". WHAT!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! So we got there, walked in and got to meet the brothers. They were so cute and super sweet to Emily and Reagan. I thought Reagan was going to faint. Then, on to our seats, FRONT ROW, SHUT UP!!!!! An AMAZING night. Thank you Emily for letting my girl hang with a super cute teenager. She still talks about you. Christa, What a fun night. I am so lucky to call you my friend. SHUT UP, WE ARE SO CUTE!!!! {Wink} Uncle Jerry, you made one little girls dream come true. She will NEVER EVER forget it. Damn, how am I ever going to top that!!!! Hugs

I Did It!!!!

It was ALOT harder than I thought it would be, but I made it, 13.1 miles!!!! And you know the crazy thing, I am ready to do it again. I never thought I would say that. I was AMAZED at how great I felt immediately after the race. My legs were tired but no blisters, aches or pains.

My time was 3 hours 24 minutes, which was a little slow for me. BUT, considering that I ran the entire race WITHOUT music, I think that was pretty good. As we were lining up with 15,000 of our closest friends, my earbuds must have slipped off of my neck. What a freaking nightmare!!!!! I really use my music as a pacer for my time so not having that did slow me down. Oh, and did I mention that I had to stop and pee not once but TWICE. I mean really, that cost me a little time as well.

Loved spending time with Tanya, Ann, Shannon and Christa. These girls are AMAZING. We all finished the race and got the most awesome medals. THEN, we played at Disneyland for several days. So much laughing, shopping, drinking....GOOD TIMES. And I get to see all these women again in November here in Houston. Life is good. Hugs.

I'm Leaving On A Jet Plane

Well, tomorrow is the big day. I leave for California for my race. I pick up Shannon in Arizona and then Tanya will meet us in California. Ann and Christa arrive on Saturday.

I am so ready. My body and spirit are ready to go. I have waited a LONG time for this race.

The 5 of us have been right there for each other through the entire training process.

I have all my gear packed, tutu's packed, journals, and Disney charms. I am including a photo of the journals.

Once I get to the hotel tomorrow, I will post a link for viewing the race. Thanks to all of you for your love and constant support. Hugs
