My sister in law, Dana and myself. Can you see us?! It's like "where's waldo?!" I am wearing a bandana and Dana is in a blue shirt. This was before the race. And this is after...not sure where we are but there was a bunch of people there!
We saw Kev and Bry at the beginning of the race and then I didn't see them until about mile 9. I was so pumped the beginning of the race because I would hit about 8:00 minute miles at times. Disregard my face in this picture. I was trying to take my shirt that was wrapped around my waiste to throw to Kev, while I was running. Hence, my face is weird! :)
Trying not to laugh while running...as soon as I past Kev, he ran with me in his sandles. It was pretty funny how he was trying to pump me up. He's so cute. :)
I did it!! It was so packed at the end of the race (13.1 miles) that Kev couldn't find parking. He had to park like 2 miles away and just ran it..in his sandles and barely missed me passing the finish line. Apparently, I ran a lot faster then he thought I would! I like the girl in the back of this picture. Ha! It's like she thought Kev was taking a picture of her! :)
After the race, there were a lot of different venues and music and a lot of supporters. It was pretty cool to hear them screaming for you while you turned the corner! Oh, I forgot to mention too...so the last 3/4 of a mile, I got a cramp in my foot!! I couldn't stop because I wanted to hit my goal, so that mile part was a fun experience. Oh and mile 11-12 was up hill...so that was a little challenging, but good.
My love and I
I was feeling good! It was such a perfect day!
AND YES! I DID IT!! THIS IS OUR SIGN FOR DOING IT IN "LESS THAN TWO HOURS!" :) (Kev's less than sign should have been on the other side though) MY TIME WAS 1 HOUR 57 MINUTES AND 28 SECONDS! My average minute per mile was 8:58. I was 1,342 out of 4,621 overall people. Out of the females, I was 534 out of 2,882 and out of my age group (19-24 year old girls) I was 82 out of 398. I was pretty pleased and hope to beat my time the next race I do!
After the race at Dana and Bryan's apartment.
