GOOD NEWS: I finished! It's good that I am blogging about this today and not yesterday. Yesterday I was in a really bad mood because I was upset about my time. I mean I was REALLY in a foul mood after the race. My parents were concerned about my leg and I was concerned about my time. Today I am proud of myself for even finishing. It may not have been the race I wanted, but I finished and I have learned NOT to deviate from my routine on race day. Other good news...I jogged a mile. I don't think I've jogged a mile without stopping since middle school (I'm 29 now)! That 1st mile was right at 13 min. I was super excited (before crazy pain kicked in)! They had people stationed along the route to encourage you and I really liked that!
This is the t-shirt we received, and I can always use new t-shirts, so I LOVED this!
Tuscaloosa's mayor...he's training for a marathon right now
Me...limping across the finish line
final "glad that's over pic" lol! I could not even fit into this shirt in May (when the race was originally scheduled..yaya for weight loss!)
