Had a great race this morning. Beautiful weather. Huge crowd. Amazing friends. Worthwhile cause.
And I beat last year's time by 2 minutes and 18 seconds.
I am awed by my friend Sandra. I trained hard for this race for two months and still had to walk short increments. She got away from me right out of the gate and I never caught up. She hardly trained! She's amazing.
She waited with our families for me at the finish line. She's cool that way.
A lot of other friends cheered me on through the finish too. Some passed me during the race, trying to drag me with them. Others were screaming my name as I picked up my pace for the last 10th of a mile. Thumbs up, fist pumps, and crazy smiles. My family with their signs.
My son...who prayed last night that I would win...with his ready hug and a whisper that I was a winner no matter what I placed.
Kids fun run.
Lots and lots of friends.
It was a great run.
