River Town Run Half Marathon

I completed my second half marathon yesterday! My friend and I decided to sign up for the River Town Run in Washington, Missouri, as an attempt to get in shape for our upcoming trip to Mexico. The forecast called for severe  thunderstorms all morning, but we lucked out and only got sprinkled on for a little bit.

A few miles into the run
I had never visited Washington before and immediately fell in love with the quaint little town. The scenery on our lengthy run was beautiful! We decided we needed to make another trip soon to check out all of the cute local shops and restaurants.

A train passed through as we were running along the river front
God's Country (as my boyfriend would call it)

The numerous hills made this a challenging run, but we hung in there and crossed the finish line in stride. It may be a while before we attempt another 13.1 mile run!

We survived!!

P.S. We knew it was going to be a good day since we both ended up with fun bib numbers (it's the little things)!
