Race Results: 
Emily Jacobs...finished 687 out of 1200 women...126th of my age group...
final time.....59.54.9!!!!!!!  That's a 9.39 minute mile people!!!

The best part is that I beat the crap out of my goal by a whopping 6 seconds!

This race was AWESOME!  I loved the route, I loved the feeling of running amongst all of those people, I loved the morning,  I just couldn't stop smiling!  I actually ate something before I ran this morning and I felt great the entire run!  The last half mile was a bit hard, it was a slight grade increase, and we were facing the sun.  I had to sprint it in to make my time, but I did it! 

I have earned myself a new pair of running shoes, courtesy of the handsome Nicholas Jacobs.
I have also learned that it is possible to pee one's pants and to just keep on running.  Really.

  1. I can't believe I JUST discovered that you have a running blog. Hooray for more reasons to stalk you! :D

    And CONGRATULATIONS that is a VERY respectable time. I can't do a 5k with miles that quick, (not that I'm a pace setter by any means....) and am thoroughly impressed. Way to go!
