I signed up for this race with the intent that THIS RACE would be my Boston. I have since changed my mind (maybe I can actually get a BQ now), but I paid $175 for it so I might as well get my t-shirt.
Karen ran the entire 26.2 miles with me. Bless her heart! Rachel ran about 10ish miles with us. Again, I was able to run the hills SO strong. I was very surprised.
Tim dropped off a bag of supplies at the Mitchell Hollow MCT (mile 15) bathroom for us. I had a lovely Dr Pepper and put on my rain jacket. Shortly thereafter, it started to get really windy.
The last 6 miles it poured rain. We didn’t run very fast and had a lot of stops, but that rain poured. This race was SO much fun. Karen and I were able to talk the entire time and the miles flew by.
This experience made me really grateful for good friends.
