The race started at 8am and the night before they were calling for thunderstorms. Now, I like to run in the rain, but didn't want to start in the rain. In the morning, the rain showers were now predicted for the afternoon. The alarm was set for 5:45am, enough time for coffee, toast and to get dressed.
I looked to my right and saw Carl and my parents...my dad took this awesome shot of me! He should be a professional photographer ;-) I crossed the finish line and found my cheering squad. We headed to the celebration party, where you got free pizza and a free beer. We have cut out all alcohol and I was going to have my free beer...I deserved it!
My parents are so sweet and supportive. They have come to every Cap City half that I have ran to cheer me on at the finish. I really do have the best parents in the world.
We headed to gear check and grabbed our sweatshirts but first had to take a celebration picture as we both set personal records!!
My official time: 2:09:00
Carl's official time: 1:46:44.
