My Better Half Marathon…Unless You’re Us and Choose the 5k Option

Last year, we ran the 10k distance for the My Better Half Marathon and had a wonderfully valentiney time.  We felt that it brought us closer together having matching "bestie" bibs and medals with our photo in them.  Yes, we're shameless suckers for that stuff.  It seemed like a no brainer that, of course, we'd run it again … Continue reading My Better Half Marathon…Unless You’re Us and Choose the 5k Option

The Ups and Downs (Literally) of the Whidbey Half Marathon

  So we ran another half marathon.  That's right, you read that correctly, we (Lydia and Annie) ran another half marathon two weeks after the Everett Half *gasp*. Skeptical? We don't blame you, but we'll explain: We have this amazing friend, Jessie, who had a miscarriage and lost her grandma all in the same week.  She … Continue reading The Ups and Downs (Literally) of the Whidbey Half Marathon
