Let me tell ya that my nice family did not do this with me, no most of them were in bed and I was thankful. Why you ask? Because this was my goal and I needed to do this myself. I started of great, but those uphill battles were interesting. With the winds and the cold, it was BITTERLY cold and I sure did feel it during that first mile since my hands were numb. But after that, I was just fine. The race started at 8am and I was in my car driving away by 9am. My time was 40 minutes. Not my best, but with the cold and wind, I finished and I was NOT the last one...which I was afraid of...thank goodness!
So thanks for the well wishes, it was DEFINITELY worth it and was so much fun considering the weather. To reward myself, I got a large cup of Starbucks coffee and loved it. My family was a little surprised that I was done so early, but I am so glad that it is over with.
Have a wonderful Saturday
