    Florida seems to have a lot of great races! I need to move out there….any need for teachers?

    I love the Gasparilla Medals it is my most favorite one! I agree though it is so congested in the beginning. Your sister is the cutest thing! I absolutely love that shirt. Congratulations on finishing under your time!

    I love your sister’s shirt! I definitely would’ve teared up hearing that guy talk to his mom a bit. I get really emotional around races anyways, so that would’ve done me in.

    That medal is awesome! So lovely and at the same time so sad about the guy infront of you. I would have teared up as well. Love the top Kelly is wearing. 🙂

    Congrats on another great race! I volunteered on Saturday at the race, distributing vendor products. Despite the yucky weather (rain included), I had a blast. We went through several thousand products; I don’t think I’ve ever been involved in a race that big.

    Kelly is looking fantastic! I hope she is having a wonderful pregnancy. 🙂

    Congratulations on a great race! Your sister looks amazing, I love the shirt! I would have teared up at the guy running for his Mom. We have a race in the UK called Race for Life, in aid of cancer research. Do you have it in the US? It’s a women only race, and runners wear a bib on the back with the name of the person they’re running for on it, it’s a really emotional race, but such a good one.

    Congrats on the sub-2. The medal is awesome! There were so many good races in Florida this weekend, it was hard to pick. I was over at 26.2 with Donna and it was a blast, though pretty humid too!

    Great job! I ran my first half yesterday, and I definitely saw a few inspiring signs and T-shirts on people running. It’s hard not to get emotional!

    How do you like the Gatorade chews? I’m looking for a new fuel. I’ve bought GU (can’t handle the texture) and Shot Bloks (haven’t tried yet).

    Way to pull through in tough conditions — seriously heat kills me more than probably any other element. It’s just impossible.

    And seriously, could your sister look any more adorable? She is the definition of glowing!

    We ran the 10k BDR a couple of weeks ago =/
    Awesome run yesterday!! I finished at 2:13:20 which was a PR =)

    Reading about that guy with the t-shirt made me tear up! I probably would have lost it if I was running and saw him. That’s so amazing.
