Just making it to the weekend seems like a victory. Some weekends my victory is simple, maybe I have gotten to see some old friends, or drank some beer and went canoeing (both those things are always awesome!) This weekend though my victory was different. I last minute (literally the night before made this decision) decided to run, Duo On The Ledge; a half marathon in Grand Ledge, MI.

Here's the thing, the race took off at 6AM, and I had to be in Grand Ledge by 5, so I woke up at 3! 3AM... that part was awful, but over all I finished my 6th half marathon of 2013! Didn't hurt that I got 3rd place.
