"God promises to feed the birds, but he doesn't put the worms in the nest...Get up & move to find God's purpose for your life."
My mom made sure that I took it easy with plenty of rest and even taking taxi's from our hotel to the convention center...Elyse definitely doesn't need to be arriving 6 weeks early!
We came home on Saturday night in time to join our men for a meal full of carbs! Hubby ran in his first 1/2 marathon on Sunday morning and it was time to carb-up for the race!
When Sunday morning rolled around I was definitely thankful for the extra hour of sleep. The race started at 7:00 am, which meant arriving to get ready at 6:30 am, which meant leaving our house at 6:00 am, which meant rolling out of bed at 5:30 am! Yikes!
I wasn't going to miss his first race, so I headed out with my hair in a ponytail and no shower to be the supportive, pregnant wife!
This was part of the Bass Pro Fitness Festival, the Cohick 1/2 Marathon. We live about 20 minutes from the original Bass Pro Shops and that's who sponsored the race.
My favorite race photo...at mile 9...and before he hit a wall!
After the race we headed for breakfast at Perkins, and the next stop was the couch for Hubby & the recliner for me. We had a relaxing afternoon with nice LONG naps and then finished up the weekend with small group. Seriously I am so thankful that small group is on Sunday nights...it's such a great way to finish up the weekend and get motivated to start a new week!
