I did it again! I wasn't as fast as I was last year. Can I blame it on the cold or do I have to blame it on the lack of training? I trained. I just didn't train as much as I did last year. My time this year was 4 minutes slower than last year. I'll blame that on the cramp that stopped my running on the second 2 mile loop. I had to stretch, and then walk some. Ofcourse I ran through the finish line.

After I racked my bike, I met up with Kelly who I had met online just a year ago. I really wish we would have gotten a picture together. Oops! Next year Kelly?

I also had two high school classmates that did this race this year. Sarah kicked some major ass and finished in the top 300! Laura put up some good times too.
I hope to get more women to do this event next year. I am glad I signed up last minute. It is very well organized and run. The only suggestion is moving it closer to the beginning of September. I'm sick of this cold weather already. Thanks goes out to my Mom for getting up super early to drive there with me and to my hubby for being there to cheer me forward. Will you join me next year?
