Wildwood Half Marathon

This weekend was an absolute blast.

On Friday morning, Richard and I flew up to PA (and brought the rain with us) to stay with my friend Tammie so that we could all run in the Wildwood Half Marathon in NJ. We got to meet some of Tammie’s friends, eat delicious food (um, salted caramel fudge, anyone?), drink tasty beers (oh right, and margaritas!), and then run all the food and drink off on Sunday!

Okay, maybe not all of the food and drink.

I gained 3 pounds.

How exactly does one gain weight on a half marathon trip?

Oh right, the fudge.

While typing the word “fudge”, I accidently typed the word “fridge”. Which is the exact location of the leftover salted caramel fudge. HELP.

Here’s a little visual recap of our awesome weekend!

I love this guy.


And I somehow beat my previous half marathon time by TEN MINUTES. Think it had something to do with the course being coastal and almost completely flat? Ha! I feel really good about it, though. I enjoyed every bit of that race.

Thank you again Tammie and Donna for a wonderful weekend — would love for you two to come down in November for the City of Oaks Half!

  1. I’ll definitely try to make it down there!! What’s another HM if I’m able to finish the half ironman?!
    LOVED having you guys up here, I miss you two already and can’t wait to see you again!
    P.S. Paige has already asked when ‘Richard and Cassie are gonna come back to visit!’ I do believe that he is her first official crush, lol

      HAHA! Paige cracks me up — how cute that Richard is her first crush! City of Oaks HM is currently $70 (through the end of June, and then it goes up to $75) — sign up!! 😛

  2. What a great summary and an awesome celebration of mind over body! Glad to have spent the weekend with you, and proud that you helped me break through my “first” (If you know what I mean). Oh yeah – first half marathon that is 🙂

      Aww, so proud of your accomplishment, Donna! You should be, too! You and Tammie are both wonderful women and so much fun to be around — looking forward to our next race!

  3. So happy you had a great weekend – can tell from your super pics it was a lot of fun, and in the sun by looks of it! Congrats on your time – awesome, and surely the scales are wrong!!!!!

    Happy day dear –

      Thank you! Yes, we had a fabulous time at “the shore”, LOL! Will be putting a bathing suit on this Memorial Day weekend, despite whatever the scales say!
