Today is finally the day!
After a night of tossing and turning, my race day preparations didn't end. I woke up at 2:00 am and ate a bowl of oatmeal. I went back to sleep and woke up at 4:00 am. I got my stuff ready and out the door I went!
Before the start of the race, I made sure to review my strategized plan for the race:
This served as a reminder that I have a companion when I run (Ephesians 6:10):
Finally, after waiting 30 minutes in 45 degree weather, the race started... (Stay tuned for my race report!)...
What a sweet feeling to rip the banner! I was very proud of myself for accomplishing the time I had planned for. I actually beat my personal best record in a half marathon by 2 minutes. I finished in 1:21:15!!
I WON 1ST FEMALE OVERALL!!!!
I will post more pics shortly. Thank you my friends for the motivation you have all given me! =)
