So now we're off and running. The first few miles really went fast. There were so many people around and the course was beautiful. Unfortunately my legs were really, really feeling the "burn" early on! No running the week before let all that lactic acid build up.
|Right after the start!|
|Headed into mile 3 !|
Miles 9-10: Headed through a heavily spectator lined area. Lots of cowbell, cheering, and signs!! At this point, I saw "Rock It Like This Hurricane". Set the Scorpions song into my head for a good while! LOL
Miles 11-15: We got behind this group of runners, which was timely because around mile 12, my feet started to hurt. "Embrace the Suck" LOL Running this section of the course was cool because there were signs on the side everywhere! So we did a lot of reading and running. I almost lost Crystal through one of the water stops, but luckily didn't!
|We followed "Embrace the Suck" around miles 12-15 through Hains Point.|
|Somewhere between Mile 15-18.|
