Ha ha, Gotcha! Ain't no way that I ran a marathon this morning! I did however run the 10k at the Lake Lowell Marathon and it was awesome! Cold, windy, but great! I set out this morning with a goal of beating my last 10k time (62 minutes and someodd seconds, stupid timer being down!) and HOPEFULLY finishing the race in under an hour. I wasn't sure that I could do it, but I know that I get pumped up with races, being around people, and frankly, I don't like people passing me. So despite some mean hills on the back half of the race I finished those 6.2 miles in 56 minutes and 40 seconds! I could hardly believe it! Way to just shatter a goal, right!?! I finished 5th overall for the ladies and 2nd in my age group, though you see here they gave me the first place ribbon since the woman that beat me in our age group won overall. I'm thrilled!
Oh, and remember how I was looking for ideas for something to do with my race bibs and such, well thanks to Pinterest, I found the perfect idea! But you know me, I don't buy stuff, I make it! So I went outside and cut myself a board from Tyson's pile of scrap wood, sanded it down, primed, painted, stuck on some vinyl, screwed in some hook and Voila! I added hooks to the bottom for medals and such, if, you know, I even get the guts to sign up for a longer run.
