This is a shout out to my beautiful sister Karleen. She rocks! So we decided that we needed to run a long run last Saturday. This was all because Kim and Em had to brag about there awesome 1/2 marathon (Just kidding, I love that you guys share.) and so we decided that we needed to make sure we could run a long one. We decided it was time to run Suncrest again. Well we started up and Karleen was kicking my butt. I was eating her dust. So I told her I needed to shed some clothes, so that I could really catch my breath. Well I shedded some clothes and we continued up the hill. It is a 10 mile run. You run up to the top of Suncrest, which is 5 miles up the mountain. In some areas it is an 8% incline. So it is a good challenging run if you are looking to improve on hills. Well Karleen was getting so mad at herself because she said she felt awful. Well when we got to the top we had ran the run in 51.50 minutes. We averaged a little over a 10 minute mile. I was so proud of her and us for that matter. We have never ran that run in such a great time. It was also raining and turning to snow the higher we got. Karleen always tells me how slow she is and how she slows me down and that isn't the case. She is doing great and she is way too hard on herself. So this is a shout out to tell her she kicks A--!! I love you Kar and I love running with you. I have never ran with anyone that pushes themselves as hard as you do except maybe McCoy. Love you. You are beautiful. See you Saturday.
