Due to the slow speed at which people were using the Honey Bucket's we ended up near the back of the first wave of runner's. I usually try to be near the front because I can't stand being behind slow people. The first 3 miles were spent at a pace much slower than I would have liked to have been at. I tried to use the mad driving skills of Jake as I weaved in and out of people. Although I hate when Jake cuts people off, I must admit that I did a lot of that. People probably wanted to trip me or something but I had to get out of the crowd. So if I cut you off I am truly sorry :)
This race went so fast I looked down at my Garmin and was so surprised to see that we were already at mile 10, it was an amazing run.
Going into this race I didn't have any goals. I was really afraid that running in a hot hat and tutu would drive me crazy. I also didn't want to go too fast down that mountain and injure myself. I wanted to go and enjoy it and that's exactly what I did. Holly and I ran it together and had a great time.
I finished in 1:37:30 with an average pace of 7:27, placing 10th in my age group. This wasn't my fastest time by a long shot but I had fun and that's all that matters :)
It's VERY important to stretch after a race :) Jake thought I was weird but oh well!
Poor Kenna was stuck at gymnastics and was so sad to have missed this race but we had to get a picture in front of the hearse :)
This race was AWESOME and I can't wait to do it again next year. I love the shirt and medal!! Would it be weird to wear a Halloween shirt year round?
Did you do this race and if so what did you dress up as?
Is it weird to do a race and not actually "race" it?
I think not, it's much more fun that way :)
