I am primarily a stay at home mom who loves being Mrs. Christopher Todd Stidham and is proud to be called "Brady's, Evan's, & Maddox's Mom". I started this in order to look back on the many moments that I like to think I will never forget as my children grow and change...and hopeful that one day they will cherish these recorded memories as well.
I ran a half marathon.......13.1 miles!!! It was hard as h#!! but I did it!!! I committed to this back in November and after a long 3 1/2 months or so on Sunday, May 7th I did it....completed a half marathon. The training did not go as I would have liked....bad weather, no treadmill, injuries, illnesses, breastfeeding, work, nap schedules, husband's work schedule, preschool schedule, not having the schedule match-up with anyone to have a steady partner, etc....but I did it!!! Did I mention that I did it??? I am still in shock at times!
It was a great location...Seaside, FL....GORGEOUS!!! A pretty flat terrain...perfect time of year for Florida...early March...perfect sponsors....Vera Bradley and Jim 'N Nick's BBQ......the best ladies anyone could ask to do this with and enjoy a weekend at the beach with:
Deana, Kerry, Brittney, Leah, Christine, & Dara.........love these girls!!! I would have NEVER done this without them!
Sweet Brittney....a collegiate cross-country runner who encouraged me all along and came WAY down to my level to do this with me and, figuratively speaking, "carried me across the finish line" (although not long past mile 10 I thought she might have to literally carry me across). What a GREAT girl, wonderful cousin, and - more importantly - fabulous friend!!! Love her!!
Did I mention it was at Seaside, FL....the GORGEOUS beach!
