Freeze frame! Check me out at 19 seconds!! Grey shirt, neon yellow Nike hat, #1102.

This is the start of the Iron Horse Half Marathon in Midway, KY on Sunday, October 14, 2012—a beautiful race among rolling hills and horse country. It was the horses cantering freely alongside one another that kept me smiling for 13.1 miles. They ran gracefully throughout the wide open acres of land, and among the classic white fences, painting a beautiful autumn landscape. Top that scene with vibrantly colored leaves falling here and there, and a subtle breeze to fill the air…can you picture it?

Simply said: “it’s a perfect day" for a race.

Typical post-race gear collage. May 6, 2012: my second #halfmarathon, but more importantly, a #PR!!! We ain’t talkin’ public relations. (Taken with instagram)

Happy finishers…and #besties. :)

Krystina - Atlantic City Half MarathonMy favoritest favorite thing about spring,
Is what the start of the season guarantees to bring.

When the winter chills,
Turn into warm spring thrills,
And the beaming bright sun,
Says it’s time to run!

Hit the streets,
Let your feet grace the road,
Turn up the (Josh) Turner,
Embrace the “Just Do It” mode.

Focus your breathing,
Feel your heart beat,
It’s you and the road,
The road’s yours to defeat.

The breeze keeps you going,
Step-right-left-repeat,
Push yourself to the limit,
Push yourself through the heat.

You’ve made it this far,
Pushed it out every mile,
Your feat is the journey,
And one that’s worthwhile.

Focus your breathing,
Feel your heart beat,
The road is your battle,
Your battle to defeat.

Destination ahead,
Victory in sight,
Run til the end,
This is your fight.

This scene and quote from The Parent Trap immediately came to mind, with my first half marathon just 7 days away! And if you’re wondering, I’m feeling a little bit of both, Hal.

Hallie: “He said he’s really anxious to see you.”

Elizabeth: “Anxious-nervous, like he’s dreading it or anxious-excited like he’s looking forward to it?”

Hallie: “Anxious-excited, definitely.”
