The runners come in and out through the tunnel where the football players come out for the games. I just made it in (zigzagging through the mobs of people) to see hubby running near the end zone. There was no way I'd get closer so I took a picture from where I was. He saw me (yellow may not be my favorite color, but it's bright) and waved. He's also wearing yellow which was easy to see.
Once the girls were done, we figured out a spot where the 1/2 marathoners would be coming through so we could cheer on our friend. It was so loud, he didn't even hear us when he went through. It also didn't help he was on the opposite side of the road. Here is a picture of what it looked like when the 1/2 marathoners were coming to the finish line. There are so many people you can't even see the runners. To the left of the picture is the finish line. The far right side is where they come out of the tunnel.
This run came at a great time. I was starting to feel discouraged about my weight loss (or lack of) progress this week. Although I do think pre-Aunt Flo time may have something to do with it....hopefully it's just weight gain. Hubby wants me to run next year so I can "run on Lambeau Field". My motivation has been re-ignited and last night I ended up walking/jogging 2.55 miles. I tried jogging (sorry I can't call what I do running LOL) 1 minute and walking 1 minute but I got shin splints. Hubby said I should start out just jogging 30 seconds and walking 2-3 minutes....and gradually build up to jogging longer and walking less. We'll see how it goes.
