Oh the hills, and hills, and hills! But you know what? We did it!
See that up there? That's the elevation map that my Garmin made while I was running. Holy Hills! Thank goodness my friends Nancy and Kim were cheering us on about mile 11. I am not sure why but mile 11 always seems to be my wall.
My overall average pace was a little slower than I would have liked (I aim for under 14 minute miles) but considering the hills, I am not complaining.
Kim took this picture of Lisa and I attacking the hill. I was so happy to see them, and extra happy to get this picture on my time line this morning. :-)
There is no better feeling after a race than seeing this pop up on your Garmin. Fastest HALF means Personal Record! ;-) I know that there are people who ran the full yesterday in less time than it took me to do the half. But you know what? I don't care I am getting faster each and every time I do one and that is all I care about.
Lisa and I post race.
Backwards look at our medals. ;-) Stairs hurt today or I'd go take a regular picture for you all.
The wonderful Team RWB group of runners from yesterday. At least 4 of these wonderful people ran the full. And then some of us went out to dinner last night to celebrate.
