She runs circles around me & I’m just fine with that.

I traveled to North Carolina this weekend for a plethora of family and friend events. The stars aligned, the good Lord smiled and they all fell on the same weekend, conveniently enough, just before my new teaching job started. Hooray! I’m going to start with the last event first, my sister’s first triathlon. Allie has been a runner for years {more photographic evidence of that was acquired this weekend as well} and has been averaging three to four marathons a year for the last two or three years.

Let’s just say I was more of the “one and I’m out” kind when it comes to twenty-six point two miles.

But she of the running genes looooves them. And with this triathlon she’s added another athletic feat to her resume. I, of course, couldn’t be prouder.

  1. awesome!!
    i'm still working to running a mile straight! i'm good with doing interval running ....but i really wanna say, i can run a mile without stopping! one day (soon!)

  2. Oh, that is awesome! And, 3-4 marathons a year? Seriously? Your sister is amazing. And finally, I have the same bike shoes she does. They rock. Many congratulations to her - I hope she keeps up the tri thing.

  3. Allie is a rock star. Love the pictures Lu!

  4. Love the pictures of your sister's marathon. I admire anyone who can run. That is not my thing. I love to walk though. Hope you enjoyed your visit to NC! It was hot, but I know you enjoyed being with family. Love & blessings from NC!
