I started by sewing a white yarn up the center of the steek, then I used a different colored yarn to crochet the anchors at the armholes and the v-neck.
On October 17, 2010, my friend John and I set off to run the Humboldt Redwoods Half Marathon! We had been running and training for months to get to this day - and John was a trooper; his knee was hurting a bit the week before, and seemed to be better as the day approached. We talked about the realities of a half marathon and decided that we'd work together to get him through the race. John's husband Chuck joined us for the trip and was so kind with his cooking and hosting. We stayed at a friend's house the night before, and got to spend the night in front of the fire. The morning of the run, we got dressed, headed out and felt pretty good. The first 6.5 miles were pretty easy, running through the most amazing scenery! As the miles increased, so did the pain, and it went from running to walking, to limping... and while the finish may not have been the most spectacular in history, John and I finished the run - 13.1 miles - VERY proud of the hard work we both put in... the best part? We are already making plans for our next runs!!
