Great racin' gals!
I'm sorry I wasn't in the crowd this weekend wavin' the pompoms madly to cheer you on. I knew about upcoming races....but worked the weekend and have been so intent on preparing for an upcoming vacation I TOTALLY spaced it.
Needless to say, you really did well. Way to go!
Isn't running great!

I finished the race! My goal was to at least run the first half, which I barely did. I walked/ran the second half for a finishing time of 44:30!!

I did okay, got a touch of heat exhaustion I think and finished a good 20 mins slower than I wanted to for my first half but I did it in 2:35:07 chip time. Yay me, I finished!

Thanks for asking about me. Next half I will wear my camelbak! Lol. I put a full report in my blog!!! Including some photos of the evil hill I had to climb up and down - both ways hehee. That sounds like one of those, "I walked through snow, barefoot to school, both ways" sort of stories but it sure felt like it! Lol. Tough course and it was nearly 80 degrees out there and almost under noonday sun! Whew. I really like to kill myself out there!!! HAHA. Feeling good now though.

OMG! Thank you Michelle for letting everyone know about my race and thank you Anne and Crochet and everyone for the wonderful cheers for my race! I am so excited and SOOOOO nervous about tomorrow! I haven't slept much the last two days! Lol. I have my clothes all set out, my fueling game plan ready, registration form with me, I think I am ready!!! I might be too nervous to fit in my easy 3 miler today! Lol.

Thank you so much for all of the support. I am really touched!

I will tell you guys all about it when I finish (note I said WHEN lol). :)

Positive thinking all the way!

Jackie, you go kick some butt girl in your race! Thanks for cheering for me too!!!!!

Jackie is running her first 5K race this Sunday. Let's get out the pom poms & cheer her on!
Perhaps reflect on YOUR first race (those of us who do races), and send out some good vibes!!!

Jackie--you are one of my first SP friends & you mean SOOO much to me! Good luck & savor the experience. I will not be doing a race, but I will run a 5K on Sunday & will be thinking of YOU!!!!! Peace--Anne

Go Jackie GO!!!!
