Good news and bad. As some of you know, there were four of us from my family running the Tower of Terror 10 miler. My brother-in-law, Michael finished in 2 hours and 21 seconds. He was a little bummed. He said if he had known he was that close to 2 hours he could have found another 21 seconds somewhere. I think I am getting him a Garmin for Christmas. LOL
My DDIL, Amanda, was 2 hours and 22 minutes.
My son Geoffrey and I were together almost all of the way. Between a light jog now and then and a good steady fast walk, we managed to stay at just over 16 minute miles the whole race and finished just off pace at 2 hours 43 minutes and 2 hours 44 minutes repectively.
However, my son became very ill a few minutes after we finished. Had to take him to medical for treatment. Then, I was so concerned about him, that I didn't get anything to eat and I was becoming hypoglycemic. It was a worrisome few minutes. We are both just fine now. But we didn't get to the after pary because of it. Geoffrey admits he should have trained a bit harder.
We did take some pictures of us with our medals. I will post them later. I also will go to the TOT website and see if there are any official pictures of us.
I think I will sign up of The Princess Half!
