The Pig has Flown
Hey guys! I am EXHAUSTED. We had a lot of fun at the Pig this weekend, but it's been a long, tiring weekend and I am headed to bed!! I vow to stick to the west coast from here on out! This morning's race started at SIX AM - Eastern Time - translation: 5 AM our time. We had to get up at 2 am our time to get down there with plenty of time for potty breaks, etc. That's not a waking up time, that's a going to bed time, really. It's also pretty exhausting to tack a 5 hour car ride home onto the end of running a half! Whew!!
We decided to run this one together, so this was actually OUR first half (but Brent's 5th and my 6th in the past year). We finished in 1:52:39, right in the middle of our planned 1:50-1:55 range. It was fun to run together, sometimes I pulled the pace and sometimes Brent pulled. We never really went full out, we were just so tired from the early morning and after last week's push I just wanted to enjoy the run and not become violent. (But I did elbow a jerk at the end who tried to get in between us. I want good finish line pics of us!!!) It's a beautiful course, I highly recommend it. AND, Elizabeth ran THREE miles with us! After she had already run with others. I'm thinking in total she probably ran more miles today than Brent and I did! Anyway, it was so awesome to meet her and I'll have lots more pics and race stuff tomorrow (shocker, right???). Brent got the absolute cutest pic of her! I love RBF meetups! But for now - we need sleep!!!!
Sat-2 mile run.
Sun - 13.1 mile run, a weekend spent with my brother, his wife and their 2 toddlers. enough said.
