Running with my momma!

Today since we didn't go out and run in the crazy weather we had our own race! She got first in her age group and I got first in mine. Nice, huh? lol It looks like less than 100 people toughed it out and ran the race snow and all. By afternoon the sun was out, the snow was melted and it was COLD. 
Momma did great! Around mile 8 her right knee was hurting really bad. We're thinking her shoe wasn't being very kind to her, plus she's currently living in TX and there aren't many hills where she runs. So, I'm sure it was a good thing we didn't run on the snow and ice this morning cause I don't want my momma hurt. She toughed it out until about 9.78 and then we walked the rest of the way. J picked us up and then we drove over to our water bottles and I ran another .5 to go get them.
Here we are!  Me and my mommy! :) Thanks ma for running with me. I love running with you. I had a great time talking and running.

Oooh, check this baby out...
I've got a MAJOR tan line. I'm thinking that when the weather warms up some more I'll start wearing my RunningSkirts, maybe, I'm still a little self conscious.
