My only goal was to run the entire race non-stop. Okay…I’ll be honest, my other goal was to beat my daughter. Marilyn was 10 feet ahead of me around mile 2 ˝. I kept thinking at that point it’s “mind over body” so I kept pushing it. It was an incredible feeling to cross the finish line and a wonderful memorable moment when she ran into my arms and hugged me. The poor girl, if she only knew how sweaty I was.
I don’t have the official time yet but I ran a little under 29 minutes and finished 45 seconds after Marilyn.
After the race we had a free pass to go into the Zoo. It was a wonderful morning at the Zoo. Here are some fun pics:
