Chosen Half Marathon

Today I completed one of my goals in life...I ran a half marathon!! I ran the Chosen Half Marathon in New Braunfels and it was AMAZING!! The purpose of the Chosen Marathon is to raise money for adoption....what a wonderful cause!! 

Families participating in the race posted pictures of the children they had adopted on this board. 

One thing I loved about the race was all of the encouragement along the way. I can't think of a better way to encourage someone than through scripture. Several teams had shirts just like this:

Here's some more encouragement!! You can't see their shirts in this picture, but they say "I was chosen." Another poster I saw said "I was adopted into a Christian family, thank you for running for me today."

The race also had beautiful scenery and a challenging course. Here are some pictures of the course.

I just loved running along the river!! 

I saw this sign on the course...hahahaha.

Finally, made it to the finish line!! I completed my first half marathon without taking a break to walk!! Yay!!
