The results are in!

O.K. So it was much harder than I remembered,lots of hills, some stright up! My goals were a little ambitious but I came pretty close! Drum roll please...... My time was 1:49:26! That's an 8min. 22 sec. mile pace. In my division ages 30-35 I placed 8th out of 119 women! Overall I placed 178th out of 1264 runners total! I am pretty proud of myself, I've gotten so much faster over the past 2 years and the best is yet to come you should see some of the times of the women 35-40 even 50+. Can you believe the fastest female's time was 1:30:58, that's a 6:56 mile pace, crazy for 13 miles!
I am really proud of my friend Shawna from the gym. This was her first race ever, she's lost like 55lbs over the past year and 1/2 and she was looking to do something really challenging. She's hardcore and in great shape so I knew she could do it. Her time was 2:20:12 and she ran the whole thing. I'm so glad we went together and I got to see her cross the finish line! What an accomplishment!
My friend from church Amy wants me to do another one with her in May. We are about the same pace so we would push each other to be faster and I really think I could be
with a little motivation along the way. I'm so sore today, my calves are like rocks, but I want to do it so bad! I love to keep challenging myself and improving my times!
There was a girl in the race that had a shirt on with this quote and I'm totally biting it..."Why do I run you ask? Why do you breathe I ask?
