However, Manda ROCKED the course and should blog about it soon (hint hint). And despite being totally bummed at the outcome today I DID have some cool experiences:
- I got to be lapped by the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place winners. (ummm they ran 14 miles in the time it took me to run 10) It was cool seeing their stride and watching them run. I'm sure I had drool.
- I was able to cheer for people coming into the finish line, namely Amanda (I haven't been able to cheer for her at a finish line in about a year) (and ps, I got to see PONY TAIL girl--Erin this is a must-tell story)
- I remembered WHY I like to run... it has nothing to do with time but all about the company and the clarity I receive during my runs
- I got a good 45 minute icing session for my left foot, probably the best icing that foot has ever seen! ;)
So, yup, that about sums it up. I'm quite leery about the marathon, not quite sure how it's going to go... I'm really hoping the next two long runs will go well and boost my confidence again. But, I'm so pumped for you guys. I really feel like you two are going to great and get PR's. It's been awesome just being able to train with you two, for better or for worse. :)
