In October, my sister, Allison and I ran our first half marathon together. We were able to accomplish 13.1 miles in 40 degree weather and rain. Rain. And more rain. Did I mention rain? It was frigid, miserable, amazing, and so rewarding.

By late October, I accomplished my goal of raising $2,800 for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America. In fact, I am now at $2,890 raised! I am participating in the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in Las Vegas this weekend and am excited to run 13.1 miles on the Las Vegas strip at night. Nervous. Terrified. Scared. But excited at the same time. I have worked hard for this and am happy it is finally here!
