The Amazing Race!

A couple of weekends ago my mom, and two of my sisters came into town for a visit and so my sister Jen could run the Brooklyn Half Marathon with me. It rained the two days before the race, but we woke up that morning to gorgeous weather, it could not have been more perfect. The race started in Brooklyn's Prospect Park and ended along the boardwalk at Coney Island.

Here we are coming down the homestretch along the boardwalk. We were so happy to see Laura and Mom and then Nathan and Norah a little further down cheering us on. We were pumped!

Here we are at the end. Both Jen and I had a baby last year, so this was our come back race :). It was so fun running this race with my sister. We stayed together the whole time and kept each other going, I couldn't have done it without her. Thanks again Jen for coming all the way to New York to do this with me!

My team! Norah was such a little trooper making the trek out to Coney Island and waiting around for us to finish the race, especially since it meant missing her morning nap (and Nathan was so awesome to bring her and her gear all the way out there solo). It was so awesome to come down the homestretch and see my family at the end.

Our friend Nikki Kelly (who also had a baby last year) also ran the race. Nikki finished before us so she, Cam and John Henry joined in cheering us on at the end. It was great to share this fun day with these great friends as well. Way to go Nikki!

And here we are making the trek back into the city. Thanks again everyone for supporting me in this goal. (And yes, Norah really does ride around in her stroller holding both her legs in the air like that a lot of the time... wonder who she gets that from? :)
