This was most definitely a crazy weekend! Yes, I have been a little bit of a half marathon maniac this Summer and have raced almost every Saturday. This Saturday would be no different, however it would be totally different. I know that probably doesn't make much sense. Bear with me.
Josh and got my bib on and my timing chip put on my shoe. I also was happy to see my friend Monnica there. She probably runs just as many races as I do, but she is definitely faster. It is always fun to see familiar faces at races and visit for a little while to help with the pre-race jitters.
I completed this race according to my watch in 2:38:38 and then enjoyed some oranges, bananas, and a piece of a PB Jelly sandwich. I then headed back to find Josh only a few minutes behind me and told him I would see him after I finished my mileage. When I was done I found my cousin and thanked her for a wonderful race and appreciated the opportunity to run in it. She had cases and cases of fruit left over and begged us to take oranges and bananas off her hands. Josh got a case of oranges and I took a case of bananas. We also got a couple loaves of bread and a nice water bottle each. What other race can you say gives you all that?
