Really excited about this. I’m expecting a new baby in December; going to just train with walking until the baby is born; hoping I can be back in shape before the race!

That’s my husband in the Army uniform!! He was going to pace me, but I ended up in a boot and on crutches. This was our “pre-deployment” trip as he was being shipped out shortly after.

GREG – I LOVE YOU and I MISS YOU!! Stay safe.

God Bless your husband. I wish both of you the best of luck and safety. -Kelsi-

I registered last week. I am so excited. I have not run in years and I am so out of shape, but everyone seems to think that I have plenty of time to get into shape for the 1/2. Is that true? I am very nervous about it. eeekkk
