Hospital Hill Half Marathon (Just six weeks late)...

On June 5th, my favorite half marathon took place.  The Hospital Hill Half Marathon in downtown Kansas City.  This is such a great race.  It is organized, hilly, and in what I consider to be my hometown.  Okay, I do not live in Kansas City or even Missouri, but the Kansas City metro area is my home.  :)

The only thing about it this year is it was HOT.  Very hot, but it was fun.  That was my main goal, have fun.  I finished in 2:00:40.  The best part about this race is the entire last mile is downhill.  Who does not love that?

Thanks to Ken and Kya for coming out to watch me.  I think Ken loves this race as much as I do.  Miss Kya joins us and gets to play around. 



My number one fan waiting on me to finish. 

Almost finished, it was a scorcher!

Congratulations! I love your wild hair photo...so free! I owe you a phone call. :) I love your voice - perky, sweet, happy. Just as I imagined you'd be. haha... Curious, have you ever worn a RUNNING SKIRT? You would be ADORABLE in one. (I'm an ambassador for SkirtSports.com if you can't tell...hehe.) Have a great day xoxo

Great support crew and great hot-racing! I've been in too many races with hills in the last mile so this would be a welcomed one :)
