One of the things I loved the most about this run was that some of the houses we ran past had people in their lawn chairs yelling and cheering us on. During those times that I was questioning why anyone would want to do this, those cheers of "You can do it" and "Your doing great" really helped motivate me. So thank you to all those nameless people that took the time out of their day to rally us crazy runners on.

So how did I do....I finished in 30:52.4! That's 9:57/M pace and I was 17th in my age group (out of 54). I'm super happy and proud of myself. I was so glad my boys were their to see all those people of every age running and enjoying themselves. The youngest racer was 5 and the oldest 79. How inspiring!!
Now the question is will I do it again? I'm already looking at two races coming up this month. I'm trying to decide which one I should do. Or maybe I should do both. You will just have to wait and see what I decide.
