This was the day I had been training for since November.......Race day! I felt great when I woke up despite losing a hour of sleep due to daylight savings. The first seven miles were pretty easy but mile 8 was a challenge. The hill on mile 9 was brutal as well. I was ready to give up after 12 miles but I saw my family cheering me on and pushed through.
13.1 miles ........2 hours, 20 min! I did it!!! It was an amazing experience and so much fun. (Just got official time 2 hours 18 min!!!)

All was great until...................................................................
Brannon came home late after getting off work and went to look at the fish that the kids called him to talk about 5 times and Nemo was DEAD. OMG I didn't know what to do. I was in a panic. I couldn't tell my kids the fish died. Brannon wanted to tell them the truth and I didn't. After a while I thought I was going to tell them I had to take him to the doctor because he was sick but we were going to get him back (give me time to find a new fish). So that was the plan...thank god Jaden spending the night with grandma because he wouldn't believe that at all.
So the next morning, I get up really early to go running and I get a call from kiddos asking where Nemo is. I give them the story about the doctors and they believe me but want to go see him at the doctors and asked "when he could come home". When I got home they wanted to go get Nemo NOW!
WHAT TO DO?????
Ok so I will take them to the pet store by my moms house and find one that looks the same and make the clerk play the pretend game. Ok good plan. Well we get to that store and it out of business. So I tell the kids "I better ask dad which doctor he took it too". So we go to the next pet store and they didn't have any Beta fish. I was so worried they were going to catch on to me. But nope they believed me when I said "silly mommy forgot which store dad said". So onto the next and at last they had Beta fish. So I asked Alec which one was Nemo and he pointed at a blue fish in the tank. I asked the clerk to come over and said to him "that one is Nemo right" and gave him a wink and he went along with it and said "yes it is". Then I replied "I am so glad he is feeling better and ready to come home". PHEW
So now Nemo (or should I say Nemo 2) is home with us.
I literally was trying to find Nemo!!!
