In the last four weeks, I've run MAYBE three times so running yesterday's race was expected to be a TOTAL disaster! This is how the morning went:
Woke up at 6:00.
Got dressed and headed out of the house by 6:30 to meet Donna by 6:45.
Drove down to the race site.
Parked in a neighborhood with some REALLY CUTE houses.
Stretched before the race and thought, "Wow! I feel like this race is gonna go great!"
Bell went off.
Found that in my mile 2, I hadn't stopped to walk!
Mile 4: no walking!!!
Mile 5: NO WALKING!!!
Mile 6: ok, some walking.
The race course was confusing and with very little water stops, I had to walk a little.
All in all, I felt GREAT and although I ran a 13' mile, I was pretty pleased with myself! I'm really looking forward to the next race!
