And I really mean it when I say quickie! I'm still playing catch-up and actually start a new class today, so I'm swamped.
First, the positives....
I accomplished almost all of my goals! And then some!
#1-I did not poop in my shorties.
#3-I wore a cute outfit! I seriously got a bazillion compliments on my Team Sparkle skirt. I'm thinking I need another one.
#4-I ran at an 8:40 pace and finished 62nd overall, 18th woman, 8th in my AG. 1:53:36
#2- I did have to stop and poop. DAMNIT! Me and GU are no longer friends, I fear. But more on that later.
The race was, well... Interesting. More on that later too. Let's just say that if I had trained for this as a goal race, I'd be pretty unhappy. Aid stations were lame and infrequent, there was 1 toilet on the entire route, you had to pay an extra $5 if you wanted a CHEESY race t-shirt and there was no finisher's medal. $40 entry fee? I'm thinking it should have been $20. If that.
Since it was a solid training run, and I'm not injured, it's all good! I'm thrilled!
Talk to you later, blog friends!
