Christina rolled her ankle a couple weeks back and hadn't been able to run with us since then. She had been training to run in her first 1/2 Marathon. Her training was going well and she was making awesome improvements on her running. Her speed was continuing to improve as well as she followed her training plan. She had run her longest run ever with Katie and I right before her ankle injury, an 11 miler. Christina does Cycling and is a pretty bad a** cycling chic. If she's not cycling, she is running. That chic likes to stay fit and stay healthy.
With the Indy Mini being her first 1/2 marathon I told her it will be a feeling like no other. When she crosses the finish line, no matter what the time you can say, I JUST RAN 13.1 MILES!! That is a feeling that can never be taken away and is an accomplishment that not alot of people can say they have ever done. You should be proud of yourself and how far you have come in your training in such a short period of time Christina. I know Katie and I are. Good luck at Indy Mini. We know you are gonna kick it!!
Mike and Katie
