It all started off with a 3:30am wake up. Yeah, when does 3:30 ever sound like a good idea?? At least we were carpooling, so Debbie graciously came by and picked me up at home, and off we went to get Michelle and Crystal! We got to the race start with plenty of time to spare. No traffic at that hour ;)
You'd think that since we got there so early, we'd be right up to the start, right ? Wrong. We decided to make a last minute Port-o-Potty stop! Check out those lines !
So when we were walking over the starting line, guess what? LOL The race started without us! Can you say "thank you for chip timing??"!! We ended up at the back of the pack with the walkers, so we were going to have some major weaving in and out of the crowds to do. Crystal took this as a "sign" to stay with me for the race. I had NO complaints about that. Company is always better!!

I was so thankful to have Crystal with me for this race. I felt like I had a nice pace (faster than usual), but it wasn't killing me (yet). This course was really pretty running through downtown Annapolis and over the Navy Memorial Bridge (twice)! It was mostly an out and back course, so it was nice to see friendly faces on the return trip, but unfortunately you also knew those great downhills you just had were going to be your uphills soon enough.
|Crystal & I made it our goal to find the photographers :) We did LOL|
