We all met up around 7:45am to ride together. The women started racing at 8:50 and the men at 9:00am. The first 6 miles were golden and pretty easy for me. However, I ran way too hard the first three of the race and that made miles 7-10 pretty rough. By the time mile 9 rolled around I was miserable! BUT, I pushed through and I made it. My time was pretty sweet too! I was shooting for 1:44 but I crossed the finish at 1:40:24. SWEEEEET!!! Back in April when I ran the Tar Heel 10 miler I wrapped the race at 1:48:44. I'm super excited that I blew my old time out of the water, but at the same time I have to take into account that there weren't hills for this race and I had to push through a mother of a hill at mile 9 when I was running the Tar Heel 10 miler.
Check out the pics we took!
We're gonna ROCK this race!
