Well first of all we placed 3rd out of 8 or 9 teams, still not sure total. This was HUGE and everyone on my team really did have some stellar runs! I did OK...learned so much. Amazing to see an ultra finish right after our team.
1. Sometimes you just have to follow a girl. I spent 4 miles trying to catch a girl and finally passed her only to realize my legs were DEAD and I had 5 more miles to go.
2. Even if it feels good going 8:30 mile one....SLOW DOWN.
3. I need someone to honestly tell me if I should really be running in shorts....pics revealed a lot of skin (AKA..flying muscle/fat??)
Here is the run down of my time and my thoughts:
Mile 1 8:33 (wow I feel amazing)
Mile 2 7:59 (I think I'm a rock star)
Mile 3 8:33 (I will pass her)
Mile 4 7:56 (DID IT!)
Mile 5 9:17 (OK where is the finish my legs are burning)
Mile 6 8:35 (I can't do this)
Mile 7 9:12 (I want to walk)
Mile 8 10:11 (10 minutes UGH..will I really be able to do a marathon?)
OK better go...have a conference to go to for a few days. Can't wait to catch up with everyone...and hear about BOSTON!!
