This is my second time running the Santa Barbara Veteran's Half Marathon, my first time was back in 2012. This year was extra special because I was going with my Sister in Law who is also a veteran for the United States Army.
When I signed up for all of these fall races, it was back in April and June when I wasn't pregnant. Now that I am halfway through my pregnancy there really isn't any running involved.
But we had such a great time staying active at a pretty fast walking pace. We purposely started at the back and it was very different from the other races that we had run, we saw a totally different crowd, a service dog and his owners, a submarine navy veteran in a wheelchair and people walking in jeans.
This was our second half marathon in six months, my sister in law and I previously did Disneyland's Tinkerbell Half Marathon in May. In that time, my amazing sister in law got married, moved into a new town and just recently finished her MBA. She is an active Army veteran and overall beautiful and amazing person. I was so blessed to be a part of this race with her.
Afterwards, it was such a beautiful evening we were able to go out sailing to relax and watch the sunset. Just a beautiful weekend.
