Stuff from Stephers

I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

And the winner is...

Sunday Barbara and I completed the much anticipated Women's Race (adventure race that is). I really enjoyed the new course out at the Cedar Park YMCA-it somehow seemed much easier than last years. Although last year we biked as well. And this year I've been running every morning to get ready for this. Up hills and everything. Zach came out to cheer us on, and it actually really does help to hear a familiar voice yell "Go Stephanie!" "Come on Barbara!" or whatever. Anyhow, so how'd we do? We were ONE SECOND out of placing in our category. Yup. 5th place was 49:12 and we were 49:13. We stopped so that we could piggy back across the finish line and according to the photos I've seen online they didn't even get that. Darn it! But out of the 177 teams overall we were 10th, which is pretty kick ass if you ask me. We were also 6th in the fundraising, but we got the pink racing jerseys which was our main goal for this year. So next year...we know how important the second is and we're going to place! Thank you to everyone who supported us, it means a lot.

Way to go Steph and Barbara! Yeehawhaw! We'll start raising funds sooner next year and collect even more. And next year you'll either be one second faster or we'll get you a slower clock! Oh, and will your personal cheerleading squad get uniforms?!

We were actually planning on having a base camp next year, and we COULD have shirts....
