This is Lori from Crazy Daisy.

I've hijacked Mrs. Troop's blog.

So you better read fast and leave a comment because I'm pretty sure she has forgotten that I have her password and she may just delete this once she gets home.

It's become obvious to me that she is only going to mention her recent 1/2 marathon in passing so I felt compelled to hack into her blog and let you know that she has been training very hard for it and she ran it in 2 hours and 13 minutes! Her goal was 2 hours and 10 minutes but there were apparently a ton of huge hills that they were not anticipating and I'm just sure she would have ran faster than her goal had there been no hils.

But 2 hours and 13 minutes totally rocks!

We are so proud of you!!!

Mr. Troop e-mailed my husband this post-1/2 marathon picture so I'm SO posting it.
You're my hero.

Okay, so I just have to post one more pic because they were holding hands across the finish line.

I think I'm gonna cry.

How sweet is that!?!

That is AWESOME! Very impressive and inspiring (I've run/walked two halfs, but 2:33 was my best time, so I can imagine how hard I'd have to work to hit 2:13.) Congratulations, and love the picture. =)
