I've been chuckling at myself the last few days, because in the space of one week, each time I've spoken to someone, I've managed to work in the words "half marathon" into every conversation.
Me: "Ouch, my leg hurts"
Other person: "Oh are you ok?"
Me: "Oh, yeah its ok, I just because I ran a half marathon on Sunday..."
I do apologise to everyone I've spoken to this last week... its like when you've had a baby, you cant stop talking about it, about how painful the experience was, about how euphoric you felt at the end, about every single muscle ache, about all the minute, intricate details of the whole journey...
This race was a big deal to me. I didn't actually realise HOW much of a big deal it was until I crossed that finish line and bawled like a baby. My hamstring seized up at about 15km in, so the last quarter of the race was more like a hobble. There were lots of walk breaks, there was lots of pain. That last 1km was agony and seemed to take FOREVER. But I never once considered not finishing it. I never thought I wouldn't make it. I knew my team mates were all finishing ahead of me, in much more respectable times, but it didn't matter. All that mattered was that I finished.
And I did. All 21.1km of it. And I'm a bit proud of that.
But I do understand that I don't need to keep going on about it. So I'm publicly announcing this now, I promise I will stop talking about it.
Eventually haha :)
When Deep and Sidhu came for their maternity session at Tamborine, I could really feel the excitement from this beautiful couple! They were just days away from meeting their long-awaited baby, what a magical time in their lives! There is just nothing like this excitement of knowing that you're "soon to be 3!"
Soon after, beautiful miss Amroz arrived! This newborn session was held in the comfort of their own home so they could relax and go about their day - it was lovely to include Amroz's grandmother in the session as well!
Here are some of the favourites from their session:
