Full Vineman Run 26.2 mi 05:14 11:58 pace

I took off on the run, which I had done 11 years ago, thinking it was the same course. I remember the run being pretty flat and I had a good time of 4:40. BUT they changed it and this course was hilly. It was 3 laps so you got to do the hills 3 times. The run is in a rural area and really pretty, especially at the turn around after you get up the major hill and look out at the vineyards. Not much car traffic at all and again, the weather was perfect...never got hot. I did a run/walk - run flats/downhills and walked the hills. There were plenty of aid stations and they were packed with food and drink. The volunteers were amazing on the run also. I saw my husband 3 times on this course :) All in All, I was hoping to beat my PR of 13:30 on this race, but reality set in. It was different run course and I just didn't train as much as I wish I could have...being a full-time working mom. But I finished!!! 14:34:33 :). It was a GREAT race and I would highly recommend it. Already thinking about next year (but I told my husband to STOP ME, if I decided to sign up for anything w/in the next 6 months). Crossing the Finish Line was very emotional as I worked so hard for that moment - so many obstacles, so many early morning, so many sacrifices. But all worth it.
