Gave it all I had

The race today was a test of my STRENGTH. 13.1 miles is an amazing distance. Factor in Rain, small race field, no spectators, LONG straightaways, and it was not a day for a PR.

I truly thought if I did not get my PR I would be upset.... I am so PROUD of the outcome.. TRULY TRULY proud. I gave it all I had and left every ounce of energy I had on the course. Full details tomorrow.. Thanks to EVERYONE for the amazing support and Good Luck Wishes!!


Unofficial Finish Time: 1:47:20
Place: GUESS!!??
