Remembrance Run For Iowa's Fallen Soldiers

This was a great run.  I was really slow today but I also wanted to reflect and think about what the men and woman have done for our great country and just soak it all in.  I lost it when I ran by the 88 flags that represent each Iowan that has died in this war.

It was so cold and rainy today.  When I woke up I was almost thankful for the rain thinking oh good I don't have to go run the race and then I thought wait a second you selfish little....  Do you know how many are out there right now fighting and running for their lives because they have to and they are doing it for YOU!  Get up and RUN!!! JUST DO IT!!!

It was cold and it was rainy but it was great.  It was an amazing time and I'm so thankful I did it.  Thank you to my friend Shelly for telling me about this race!  My official time was 49:56 and my friend Shelly was at 28 minutes...Who should be running the half marathon here???  I'm so excited for the half.  It's going to take me forever to finish but I'm going to do it.  I am going to finish.

Here are some pics from today's event (yes I finally learned how to upload images to my blog)
