Did it!

I won't go into too many details, but for now just know that I....
  • Hit my goal exactly with an 8:25/mile pace, and 1:50 finishing time.
  • Nursed a dang side ache between miles 6-8; those side aches will get you every time!
  • Cried when I finished my hardest race to date. So grateful my family was there to see me accomplish my goal. It made victory even sweeter!
  • Finished 7th in my age group and 36th overall. The winner finished the 13.1 in 1:20 with a 6 min/mile pace! Amazing!
I love running because so many people are able to win- in their own personal and fantastic way.

Mindy and I at the finish. Mindy ran an awesome race too, hitting a personal best and nearly catching me in the end!

You have inspired me...I am running a half marathon in March! Except I don't have a "time goal", my goal is to not die.
