2007....1:39:39 (scary hot and humid)
2008....1:38:39 (weird, exactly one minute less)
2009....1:37:05 (could have done better)
Yup! Finally, a decent PR!
Mile seven came and went, and it was almost mile eight. I wanted to try and pick it up, and came to a corner near a bunch of warehouses, where the first year I ran this, I got a little loopy in the head because of the heat, so I always have flashbacks to how lousy I felt that year. I got nervous and just kept steady, saw the Mile Nine sign, and next thing I knew, I was done.
Then it was time for beer, which wasn't doing it for me, so I made due with a snow cone. Then we took photos of us in our running skirts, Jeannine and I matched in our camo skirts (on sale to boot!). Looking back at my race, I played it safe again, but I'm testing the waters. I'm proud of myself for running strong, not puking or letting my head get to me, and still finishing faster than last year.
Now I can look forward to the next race on the calendar......Rochester Marathon on September 12.
