Wellll... I double booked. So I gave the 10k Bib to one of the girl's other friends and then... the leg... so I gave my Haunted Half bib to a friend of my BRF Sara. SO BUMMED.
From the get-go I was jealous... She Insta'd this picture of them at the start.
|That's me there on the left. I am SO FAST.|
And then this one.
Buuuuut, I can take it. I really wanted to see how she did because, if you remember, when we did Big Cottonwood she finally left me to sprint the final mile and her thirteenth mile was an 8 minute mile. So she finished 3 minutes ahead of me. This girl had the potential to kill this.
I waited for more news and then there was THIS...
Her official time was 1:47:10. And that is ridiculously fast!
I am so happy for her! If I were there I would have only slowed her down - I didn't even want to race it I wanted to have fun in costumes! I am so happy for her that she got this PR!
If I ever get below a 2 mile half I know I can retire. (I won't but I know I could...)
She made me feel a little better by telling me she prefers to race with me, even if she is slower. She said I am far less annoying to talk to than the voice in her head that kept telling her to go faster!
Yay for Sara! So sad I couldn't play too but knowing she did so well made me feel so much better. In the meantime I went to the PT and found out exactly what my issue is. More on that later.
Congrats Sara! You rock!
