I Did it! - Race Results
I finished!!! My goal was to finish in 50 minutes, and I ended up finishing in 47:25 (11:52 pace)! There was one challenging hill and the finish was at the bottom of a hill. I thought I was going to trip up and end up rolling to the finish, but another guy who I had given a little pep talk to a little while back gave me some encouragement and we finished together. Our "reward" was a brat (yuck) on a stick, which I happily gave to hubby. I told him I didn't just walk/slog 4 miles to clog my arteries. My knees hurt afterwards (probably from the finish) but I took an Aleve and they're much better now.
So now I have to figure out what/when the next race will be. Next week hubby is doing a 1/2 marathon so I know I'll be going to that to cheer him on.
