This weekend I ran the
Here is quick summary of my run. 1-5 were cake. At 6 I was starving! I had stashed some lifesavers in my pocket just in case and boy did they come in handy. For 7 &8 all I can say is Thank you Rhianna, Jay-Z, and Justin Timberlake.
Around 9 I made the mistake of taking some banana goo from the volunteers which instantly made me gag. At 10 I was certain I was going to throw up and began mentally trying to prepare myself for it. But, it never came and I got my 2nd wind around 10.5. I felt like I was floating. I loved it! As I came up on the last turn I moved to the left preparing to sprint when I saw Brad and Abby waiting for me to pass. At that exact moment "Thunder Road" by Bruce Springsteen came on my Ipod which was all I needed to finish strong. I turned on the heat and went as fast as I possibly could for the last stretch. What an amazing feeling to cross that finish line.
Thanks to Molly for being such a great training partner and thanks to Eve for convincing me to sign up.
