Sorry, guys. No video of me crossing the finish line this time. So sorry to disappoint.
My favorite part of a race is the post-race loot that is given out. I have to say that this race totally let me down. They ran out of chocolate milk AND Jamba Juice smoothies before I even finished! I want my money back. But despite the lack of post-race goodies, I finished with my best time so far (3:55) and my race outfit was my favorite of all of my marathons so far. So overall, I would call this a successful race!
And, for your viewing pleasure:
Hanging out (and being cold) before the race. Dad had his eyes open double wide, so maybe that makes up for mom's eyes being closed?
Requisite post-race finisher photo. I was pleasantly surprised at how not horrendous I looked after the race:
Finishing strong. Supposedly this shirt I am wearing is supposed to be stink-proof, even if you sweat a lot. I definitely sweat a lot, but the shirt doesn't exactly smell like roses. It was, however, the most comfortable race shirt I have ever worn.
