13.1 miles anyone? Never in a million years did we ever think we would run a half marathon and if we did, we envisioned ourselves crawling across the finish line. However, when we decided a few months ago that we wanted to do the trek to the base camp of Mt. Everest while in Nepal we knew we needed to step up our game and get ourselves into tip top shape! After training for over three solid months for the Rock N Roll Half Marathon in Savannah, we finally felt ready to tackle the half marathon and eventually the trek to the base camp (hopefully)!
We were joined by two of our close friends, Katy and Seamus, and we all headed to the start line in Savannah with high hopes of successfully finishing the half marathon. We ran the 13.1 miles together stride for stride with the most picturesque backdrop in downtown Savannah. We are hopeful that all the training we did will serve as good preparation for the physically rigorous adventure we have planned in Nepal!
Here we are post half marathon with our wonderful friends, Katy and Seamus, who made the trip from NYC!

First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which
I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how
to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!
