|Heather is on the left...I'm on the right! I think we should have |
switched socks. LOL
The porta potty line was HUGE...I was so glad I didn't have to go. Heather, on the other hand, was not as lucky.
All of the races started at the same time so you can imagine how busy the start line was. There were 2 guys standing behind me talking about their 10k finishing times...I turned around and said "you suck". Then I thought...oh god...what if they thought I was serious...so I turned back around and said "I was kidding!"LOL
The 5k course was a great course along the ocean. You could hear the waves hitting the shore as you ran. It was an out and back course...which I like as it motivates me when I hit the turn around point and see runners still coming.
I was about 250 meters from the finish line when the course rounded a corner. I knew there were 2 gals on my heels but I felt I could hold them off on the home stretch. One problem...they cheated and totally cut the corner. This made me mad and I sprinted past them...which obviously made them mad because then the 3 of us were in a sprint to the finish. Unfortunately they passed me as we crossed. I graciously said "Nice Race." at the end and they thanked me for the final push. I picked up my totally cool medal!!!
And my knee you ask??? Well....the one that has been bothering me was just fine. The right one?? Not so good. I am currently sitting with ice(well a bag of corn) on it....and it's aching!!!! IBprofin and ice the rest of the weekend as I have another race next weekend!!!!!
Great race organizers! Sign me up for next year!!!!
