Hi, Hope’s Blog! Surprise! This is not Hope… its actually Kristine. Hope told you our story yesterday. I was given an incredible gift when we met and became friends over three years ago… (Hope, isn’t that crazy!).
It just got better when she decided to go to a school only an hour away from my house, even if it was… West Point. She continuously inspires and motivates me by everything she does. So naturally, who better to run a half marathon with!
Today, I woke up to a text and a few pictures from Hope. “4 Miles with a workout in the middle and core and push-ups at the end.” She was off to a running start! (Pun intended). See our gorgeous (and sweaty) post run selfies below!
It’s been a few months since I’ve been running consistently, so a long run today was a little bit of a challenge. But just got to start! So I hopped on the Metro (our bus system here in Christchurch, New Zealand), and went on a run through Hagley Park and the Christchurch Botanical Gardens (on the right below, with Hope’s park on the left)! It turned into an absolutely gorgeous 4 miles! It was probably a lot cooler too at 55 degrees than Hope’s Ft. Cambell weather.
I did start thinking that what we ran today is only around 1/3 of a half marathon!
Good thing we have 149 days to go!
