Will have more to say later. But for starters, photos.

I'll have it be known that I kicked that half marathon's ass this morning. More on that later. But I just wanted to share a couple photos that Erin took this morning. Sigh. I missed me some Erin and Dave. Dave ran his first half marathon this morning, so major kudos to him.

I haven't seen the two of them since I left my old town (bad decision No. 2), so lots of hugs were shared. In between posing for fantastic pictures, of course.

Running into old and dear friends at the race today made my heart hurt for the life I left behind in December, but there's no better way to hang onto the good times than by posing for bad-ass pictures in the 30-degree temperatures.

And I tell you what, Dave and I (below) are something fierce.
