Hey, maybe there's a little man in there who looks just like you but he's really good at running.*

Saturday was the 10k.  I was incredibly nervous because I didn't train as much as I had hoped.  I had nightmares the night before and was super groggy the morning off.  But the chilly air knocked that out of me.

So - here are pictures

the crowd to the side (mostly the warm up area

Kat and Luke - we decided to just wait for our wave to come to us

These people actually ran in this thing.  They were a few waves before me (basically about 10 or so minutes ahead) and I passed them at mile 2, looking a little lopsided and maybe wishing they hadn't done that.

The three of us - I went behind them and ducked a little so we'd all look the same height

We noticed some kid was planning to run this thing barefoot!! I wouldn't do it - they may clean the road before the race, I don't know, but I wouldn't trust city streets.

My name was in the sidewalk!

Kat - smelling the excellent biscuits

This is why I run

Luke's plate - he doesn't like eggs.
My official time for the race was 1:01:40 - that's for 6.2 miles...I'm happy with that.  It makes me think that maybe next year I could do this in an hour or less...we'll see!

Haha. "A little lopsided and wishing they hadn't done it." Made me laugh.

Congrats to all of you, you are my heros.
