Runner Toes and Ladies Clothes

How did I get these toes?


By running 13.1 miles...

My mom and I were all ready to head out the door for the starting line of the 2010 Ogden Half Marathon when Tyler said, "Um...Mother Lucy, do you have some running clothes I can wear? I might as well run the race with you guys. I mean, what else am I going to do for the next two hours?"

After 2 hours and 20 seconds of running, Tyler and I crossed the finish line. Yes - hand in hand! I had trained...Tyler had not. He never ceases to amaze me!! I LOVED having him as a running partner. Anyone think I'm well on my way to turning my man into a runner??

19 minutes later, my mom crossed the finish line placing 2nd in her age division! Go Mom!!

Running is exhilarating and exhausting, painful and precious, and something I hope to do for the rest of my life.

Favorite Quote of the Day:

(A few hours after the race was over and we were starting to feel the muscle tightness set in - we started laughing at the fact that Tyler just up and decided to run a HALF MARATHON minutes before the gun was fired at the start line)

Tyler: I can't believe I just ran for 2 straight hours.
Mom: And in MY clothes!
Brigitte: Seriously! Why did you do that?
Tyler: So I could spend time with you...
Brigitte sighs and falls deeper in love!
