*Pre-race Popsicles- Audrey and I are a little neurotic about getting to races on time..which coincidentally makes us perfect race buddies. We don't want to be stressed about finding a spot or being late. So we showed up 2 1/2 hours before we started the race. What we lacked in stress we made up for in frost bite! It was cold!!! I even considered hanging in a porta potty to stay warm. Would I show up later next time? No, but I would wear fuzzy slippers...and maybe a snuggie.
*Great Signs- My first half marathon was the Colfax Marathon. I don't really remember that many people out with signs. The weather was really bad that day...and it was on East Colfax so I guess not that many people wanted to hang out with the bums and prostitutes. But this race had some great signs! Here are a few that I saw and some that Audrey saw
*Friends make everything better! I loved doing this race with Audrey! It was great to see her come through the gates with her medal!
Overall, it was a great race. I am really starting to enjoy the 13.1 distance and I will totally do another one in the future. As for the present...it is looking like R.I.C.E., swimming, and hobbling. Good times!
