Well, we got there at 8:15 this morning for a 9 am start. The joke was on us, as we didn't even cross the start line until 9:40! There were about 30K people registered for the race and it was CRAZY packed.
Naturally, the only race I've ever run that was NOT timed, I PR. Really??? I ran it in 25 minutes, which is an 8 minute mile. Not too bad since I had to walk a few times in order to get past the walkers. I have no issue with walkers, however... not following race protocol is a pain in the rump! They would spread out 5-8 across the route so nobody could pass them. That was my only beef with the race.
I'm in the back...the little girl is my friend's dd that ran with us.
After with a pal..
Closer pic... although, this is before she and I had a color war. LOL... I nailed her with purple across her face and she nailed me with green... I am still sporting green all over my face 7 hours later and my arms are still bright blue.
All in all, it was a lot of fun. We already decided we are doing it next year and my girls are going to do it with us.
