Kiawah bound...



I am heading out tomorrow afternoon to Charleston, SC to run in the Kiawah Half Marathon on Saturday. I would have never thought I would be doing this! I am the girl that didn't even play church basketball...zero athletic ability here. But last May some friends convinced me to start running. I really fell in love with it and in August I set a goal of a half marathon. It seemed so far away then but it is already here. I feel ready and I can't wait to see how I do.

I am so thankful for all the support I have had from friends and family. My husband has been so good to find a way to make my runs fit into our busy schedule and I know he won't complain once while he waits for me in the cold rain on Saturday. My sweet, oldest and dearest friend Holly sent me the best gift today. Check out these magnets and the sweet note.

Chappell, aka Coach, gave me running gloves. I think it will feel like she is holding my hand the whole way. And my sweet parents are going to be at the finish line cheering me on. I am one lucky girl!

Check back in to see how I do!
