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.
