|Thanks Nuun and Ragnar for all your support!!|
Oh and guess what? Lindsey didn't ditch me this year ;)!
I don't really think it's necessary to do a mile by mile recap or anything because all I would tell you was Lindsey and I ran a pretty consistent 10:00 pace the entire time and just chatted the race away. I felt pretty strong most of the way…my hips started feeling achy and tired around mile 10 but nothing I couldn't push through! Instead I'll let you enjoy my race in picture form. Oh, and I'm not apologizing for stealing the photos from the web this time around…I'm sick of them being so ridiculously expensive that even if it was the best running picture ever I couldn't afford it! ENJOY!
Pre-race with Lindsey and her mother in law, Leslee. Leslee is one cool MIL and runs half marathons for breakfast pretty much everyday…and is always stylish while doing it!
|Somewhere in the first few miles I think!|
|Proof that we were just chatting away the whole time (somewhere around miles 6-9)|
|See, having too much fun! (mile 7-ish)|
|Selfie with the Great Wheel (mile 11)|
|Ok, now we are looking tired (mile 12-ish)|
We did it! And we ran into Andrea at the finish! I actually spotted her Oiselle butt around mile 8 on the course and gave it a nice slap before continuing on.
Post race was spent soaking in the sun and watching Leslee finish. After I met up with Andrea, Stacie, and Zoe for some pre-race breakfast and chatting at Buckley's….followed shortly after by a shower and looonnnngggg nap!!
So happy I was able to run this race after all, I really do love it and it's probably worth the ridiculous entry fee even though I'll still complain about it ;).
