What a rush to cheer on all my friends! This race is off the hook- 10,000 runners from all over the place. Seeing familiar faces laced through the crowd is inspiring! I joined my partner for her last several miles and helped her push through. To say I'm proud of her is an understatement.
Rounding the corner to the finish line (bawling our eyes out):
I'm totally unsure if I'll ever attempt this race again. Sara said "heck no" but a moment later said that maybe it is like child birth where you forget about the pain after awhile. Um, we'll see. Running is truly maxing yourself out physically--it is emotional and moving. Hard to explain but it has been one of the coolest things I've accomplished this past year. I'm excited to knock out more 5ks and 10ks this Summer and Fall. Next up: Color Run, Omaha!
