To recap from this weekend, I picked up my friend Sarah K. from the airport on Friday afternoon. She flew in from Syracuse to spend the weekend with me. Friday night we took it easy and watched a movie and tried to carb up for the weekend. On Saturday morning, we went out to San Antonio to meet my other friend Sarah M. who was running the half with us. We went to the expo and then had dinner on the Riverwalk. Sarah K. had never been to San Antonio so we had to make sure she saw some of the good sights.
Sunday was race day and we all made it through without any major mishaps. Unfortunately, my lack of training caught up with me and I paid the price during the race and after. I'm still soooo sore!! If I do it again, I need to remember how rough this one was so I don't make the same mistake twice!!! At least I got to share the race experience with my friends and made some good memories!! Sadly, Maria couldn't make it with us this time! I sure missed her as well!
We spent the night at Laura's and got to catch up with her and her family. It was fortunate to see her parents because they have been living in Europe for the last 3 years and are seldom in the States. Sadly, we didn't get to spend too much time with them because we had to drive back to Houston yesterday morning so Sarah K. could fly out. I'm sad because I'm not sure when I'll get to see her again but I hope soon!! All in all, it was a great weekend!!
