SPD stands for slow painful death. That pretty much sums up my day out on the course yesterday. Alas, it was entertaining and I finished, and so life goes on. A big shout out to Billy who stuck with me and encouraged me to not give up the entire race. Without him there, there’s a slight chance I would still be wandering the streets of LA. Here’s a picture of Page and I before the race.
If I only knew… Well tomorrow will probably be an expo recap, where I worked my first expo and got tons of pictures, and then Wednesday will be a gigantic race recap with tons more pictures. My official time was 4:41:39. A new personal worst, but oh well, I was reminded that perhaps training for a marathon would be a good idea before I jump into my next one. I am still excited to run this half this weekend though. It will be fun and I hope I won’t be too sore.
I would like to call out the fact that with my friend Ryan and Billy, we said the race times in the car that morning and I called the winning time of 2:09:19 down to the second. So I call that a win. Win number dos was the fact that I wasn’t stuck in any blue thrones this time! Yea, I have no excuses, I was just dead out there. But a poop-free run is a win in my book.
Anyways, on to the Run Necklace. It was so fun reading all your comments about why you run, I agree with so many of them. It keeps me sane, keeps me motivated and keeps me active. It makes me feel great and I love challenging myself. So the lucky winner of the Run Necklace is…
