good Yesterday's race.

I wanted to comment on my previous post, but DM won't let me. So here it is.

Thanks guys and gals. Feeling pretty good today too. As I made it to mile 6, I said, "I'm here already?" Miles 7 & 8 were, "OK, I can totally finish.". Mile 8 though was when my feet, hips and back started to ache. Mile 9...."my mind will quit far sooner than my body.". "There is no way I'm quitting." Finishing I was in a strong stride and all I wanted was to see Erik and share a smile of knowing and accomplishment.
I ran the entire time, no walking. The spectators were amazing. I received such strength and energy from them. The children were awesome and had fun sharing high fives throughout the race. That's it.....goal COMPLETED! YAY!! Next? ING 1/2 marathon in Oct., Hartford. Bring it!

    Thank you for the wishes everyone! Glad you liked my commentary @Kevin. @Harry, yes the I've been bitten for sure....
    I forgot to mention that the entire time I had a cheshire cat grin on my face...such a dork, truly! I don't care though. I was just so grateful to be out there.
    I guess it's time to change my DM goal. Have a wonderful night!
