Okay so I finished my fourth half marathon. This one I ran in honor of my friend Dina, who just celebrated 40 years as a diabetic. She is a precious lady and when she told me her anniversary was upcoming I told her I would run a race just for her. I signed up in November and really didn't train the much for it. I ran two races in December and just a couple of other times before this race day. It was raining the morning of and I was by myself. I had promised myself I was running this race for fun and not for a time. I finished in 2:13 barely. I will never run this course again. While I had a good time and enjoyed the atmosphere the hills almost killed me. I stopped at the bottom of a hill on mile 11 and laughed out loud. It was crazy, around every turn there was another hill. I met a neat lady from Indiana who had finished 16 half marathons and 7 full marathons last year, but she joined me in praying for my friend Dina. I prayed for her from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet and for all her family. I loved the medal in honor of B.B. King.
