This was a fantastic race! The wind was pushing on me pretty hard, but I still managed to put one foot in front of the other and finish strong. I cut 6 minutes off my time from last year, and achieved my goal of finishing in an hour! 🙂 My time ended up being 1:00:29.
It’s hard to not look at this race as an easy run in comparison to the training I have been doing for the marathon. I apologize ahead of time to those of you I have offended by blowing off the amount of miles those of you put in that are less than ten. Any mile is a challenge, and I applaud all of you who run for even getting out there. YAY for taking the necessary steps to no longer be a couch potato!
