Killed it!

The half was awesome!

my time - 1:38:18

It was a 26 minute PR and I had an average pace of 7:30 (and I was very consistent). I lost two minutes in the porta potty.

I won my age division (30-34 years) and got my first trophy of MY WHOLE LIFE. (Seriously... of my whole life). And I took fourth female overall (and was only behind the winner by a minute).

In a nutshell, I started off way too fast, felt good and went with it. I felt great the whole time. Someone awesome told me to Dream BIG, so I did.

Josh rocked it was a 1:45 (a 15 minute PR for him!) and my girls all did amazing too. Lots of pics and a real recap coming soon.

Congratulations! That is awesome! You are truly such an inspiration to me. I figure if you can get out there and run with all you have going on, then I certainly can, as well (just not as fast). Great job!!
