My sisters two daughters...her youngest Patience (in red), and her oldest (step-daughter) Carrie (in the ball hat) both ran in a 10km Marathon today. Patience ran solid for the 10 k, and Carrie ran 10 minutes and walked 1 minute. They finished within a minute of each other. And you have to know, this is the first time, either one of them has done anything so challenging. They ran for 1 hour and 6 (7) minutes. I am amazed, very proud of them, and somewhat inspired. 1.5 years ago, I ran the 5K Run for the Cure and it was amazing. Now I would like to do that again. I ran it alone but would love to have a team to run with this year. Its in October.....anyone interested..
She is in a little city in the hills in Chiapas called San Cristobal de las Casas. Yesterday she was in Villahermosa. She has been in 4 states in 2 days and has been on a bus for 16 hours in those two days. They will stay where they are for 2 days now. And then off to somewhere else, before heading back to Merida on Friday. She seems to be having a lot of fun and learning lots of spanish. We are able to MSN with each other almost every day. The hotels they are staying in have computers in the lobby or there are internet cafe's close by. So that is cool.
