Half-Marathon “Runners”

I ran a half marathon race this past Saturday with several friends of mine. Here’s a picture of us after we all finished. We dubbed ourselves “Team Purple” because we all got matching warm up jackets for after the race. I’m the shortest one in the middle.

Team Purple RunnersThis was a comeback race of sorts for me because I injured my foot when I ran a marathon in 2009 and it’s taken me that long to recover. However, I had a great time and met my race goal. I ran 13.1 miles in 2 hours and 15 minutes and felt fantastic after!

The race was located in the beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah Valley surrounded by pretty snow-capped mountains. This picture makes me want to make a scenic landscape quilt.

The most fun part about my weekend (after I recovered) was meeting my friend’s mom and discovering that she has an affinity for “runners”, too! She gave me a mini show-n-tell of seasonal tablerunners & wallhangings she’s been making. Aren’t they “sew” cute?
