At the beginning of this year I decided to aim for completing a half-marathon. I accomplished that goal on October 14 by running the Prairie Fire half in downtown Wichita. It was fun at time, hard at other times, but I finished and felt a great sense of accomplishment. I finished just a minute over my goal, at 2:21:04. I'm not fast (but not super slow) but I get it done.
The other big October happening was being a part of Marc & Ellen's wedding on October 20. I hosted the bachelorette party and houses 3 of the out-of-town wedding guests. It was a busy & fun weekend. Most importantly, they got married and are very happy!
