austin livestrong half-marathon

also known as 'the hills of death'. well, that's what i call it. this is me and my man (also known as 'the one who dragged me') and our friends (also known as 'the ones who beat us like a drum') before the race, back when i was still smiling. i was so sick the day before, and while i was feeling okay the first 4 miles or so, i went downhill from there. (not literally, because it was UPHILL THE WHOLE RACE.) so, my nausea + austin heat and humidity + stupid hills + 20,000 other sweaty crazies = not so much fun. i had a horrendous finish time, but i finished--and i plan on returning next year to get my revenge.
What great looking couples!! Good for you! I don't think I could have survived something like that!! Congrats to all four of you!

Congratulations on finishing in spite of heat, humidity, and illness. That's amazing in and of itself.
