The half marathon course was beyond gorgeous and we couldn't have asked for a better day -- it was totally clear, sunny, and the perfect temperature. Leavenworth is nestled in the Cascade Mountains with rivers and streams all around. The course was diverse and followed a lot of country roads -- at one point it took us on a trail run along the Wenatchee River's edge and people were out fly fishing -- it was just so peaceful and scenic... it just made me happy despite the pain I was experiencing! ha.
Before and After Shots.
Katie, Amy, and Amber were all rockstars coming in at 1:48, 1:55, and 1:56. I rolled in at 2:14... and I was perfectly fine with that. My goal was to complete it and not stop. Check and Check.
Beers and Brats. Celebrating being done. Yay.
Ummm... seriously? So cute. Little babies and their hats... Awesome.
Amy and Brent conveniently have a cabin in Leavenworth. These photos are the night before the big event.
Evidently, Amy goes "ganghsta" when she's at the cabin... and Amber's pretty tough too.
Katie helping with the cooking so we could "carb load"
And, here are our family photo shots... less Avery and Bennett who had to go to bed earlier.
So, the Leavenworth half marathon is going to be an annual event we decided...
