Race day was beautiful.
It ended in thunderstorms...but that was fine by me.
I did it!
My first 13.1 mile run.
I had never run that far before...even in my training.
Ask me 3 years ago and I would have said that distance was insane.
Now.........I say those running the full marathon were insane.
Who in the world would run 42km?!
(Ask me in a year or 2....)
I had wonderful cheer people along the course.....my own family as well as my sister, brother-in-law and niece and nephew.
My "GO" sign made by my niece which she flashed at me at the 17km mark.
(It was much needed!)
My pumpkin shoes which my cheer people said they really appreciated.
I was easy to pick out in the throng of runners;)
(It looks blurry because I was going so fast....bahaha.)
Heading for the finish....
(where I crossed without crawling)....and was given my finishers medal and surrounded by my sweet family who had drove all over the city to cheer me on in different places along the route.
(My Goal Time : 2:10
My Time: 2:08:52)
Nothing feels better than finishing something you started!
