I got water at all the stations but one. It was hard to drink while moving so I kinda walked through the water stations while drinking. I passed quite a few people, some people that I was even behind for quite a while. In the fourth or fifth mile I actually felt pretty energized and imagine my times for that stretch were probably faster than the beginning miles. My time was 58:38 and I came in 153rd.
That means my avg minutes per mile was 9:37. I was happy with that!
(Yikes, I am sweaty!)
Jen actually got 2nd place for her gender/age with a time of 46:19! She's amazing!
After cooling down, stretching, having water, banana, Sharkies, etc... We actually got motivated and went and did another 2.6 miles to bring our day's total to 9 miles! I felt great! I got home and registered for the half marathon, which is in 3 weeks. I'm pretty excited!!
