Me just before the finish.
This was a great race for me!
Before the race started I was really hoping to find Erin(Bart,Erin,Hunter,and Jorden) before the race so she new I was there running for her brother and so I could give her a big hug! I was so happy that I did get to see her for a brief minute! I think that just got my day going just right.
We started the race, my sister in law was with me, and I just wanted to keep up with her. So I was running faster than I had planned. My plan was to stick with her as long as I could and then slow down when I had to. Well, all the running stars aligned and I just kept up my pace. I figured I would run in about 2 hours 10 minutes, but I came in at 1:58:10! (Apparently Sarai and I were running together and we didn't even know it!) I was really thrilled to have broken the 2 hour mark. It isn't a PR for me, but I'm super happy with the race and how it went.
The kiddos and me after the race. My boy was only interested in my medal. He thinks I got first place and I didn't tell him otherwise. :)
