This was taken somewhere around mile 4-ish (?). I was feeling pretty awful at this point. And, my hands were REALLY cold.
I don’t really look like I’m enjoying myself, do I?
My right foot always does that when I run. It sorta ‘whips’ around. I don’t think my left foot does that.
Approaching the finish chute. The last .5 mile was really narrow. We had to run across a bridge (in the background) and then make a sharp right into the finish area. There wasn’t a whole lot of room to pass, especially on the bridge. A lot of runners commented on that in their reviews of the race.
Tim’s shot of me approaching the finish line. I was giving it everything I had. And my hands were cold.
I have so many finish line photos of my with my head down, turning off my watch. But, I am proud of myself for throwing down to beat that girl behind me. (How white are my legs!!??!)
Post race family shot. It was cold.
It has been a few days since the race. My legs are still a little tired. I was hoping to be able to jump right in to my next training plan…I’m working on a PR in the 10K in June…but I think I will take a couple days off. the last two days of running have left me feeling exhausted, instead of energized.
