Well, I have now officially joined the club!
Which club? The 26.2 CLUB!!
I probably ran the first half faster than I should have. I hit 13.1 miles in 2 hours and 2 minutes. But it's hard to slow yourself down in a race, especially me! At mile 21 I was really feeling the urge to stop. I had to really push myself mentally. My goal was to finish under 4 hours and 20 minutes.
As I turned the last corner I could finally see the finish line...the clock read 4 hours and 19 minutes and 10 seconds. Could I make it? I dug and gave it all I had to sprint in. I made it!! 4 HOURS 19 MINUTES and 41 SECONDS!!!
It was great to have Michele and Kris there cheering me on at the end! They helped me over to a nice shady spot where I immediately lay down. Kris had a pillow for my head and they got me oranges and my race shirt. I had my own pit crew to spoil me! They are the BEST!!
I am happy to be in this club of 26.2! I felt really good the next day. This was better than Robie ANYDAY!! Can't wait to do this again!
