fit style: Rock'n'Roll USA 1/2 Marathon

I ran the Rock'n'Roll USA 1/2 marathon in DC with my mom on Saturday. It was the first time since I have started running that I have actually run a race with my mom the whole time! It was so much fun!

My mom started running in 2000. We ran a couple of 5k's as a family, but I didn't really become a runner until 2008. My mom was living in Germany and training for her second marathon. She had signed up for a bunch of races before leaving in 2007, and I decided to go pick up her number for the Army 10 miler and run it. I had never run more than a 5k before. I showed up, finished, and could barely walk the next day.

During the summer of 2008 my bestie, Erin, and I followed a training plan and became runners. I did it not only as something fun to do with my best friend, but as something I could do with my mom when she moved back from Germany.

5 years later, we finished a half marathon together! And today, she told me she would train for the Marine Corps Marathon with me! :)

Here we are at the finish:
When and Where:
