And last but CERTAINLY not least, I am also so proud to report that my wonderful friend and running buddy Regina placed 8th woman overall with her first SUB-3 hour marathon! She ran a 2:59:23. She looked so strong out on the course, I literally got tears in my eyes when I saw her. Regina is the most humble person I have ever met and is so quick to recognize other people's accomplishments and does not brag about her own. She has a huge heart and is one of the most thoughtful people I know.
We did manage to wander out of the house at one point to check out Selba . Can't wait to go back and eat in their Jungle room.
Do you love race spectating? Ever paced anyone?
This was my first time really spectating a race and I must admit it was really fun. You get a large amount of joy and excitement of the race without any of the stress of an actual race. I must admit that there were multiple times when I was sad that I wasn't racing myself, but seeing the accomplishments of my running friends made up for it, seriously. I'd previously never jumped into a race to help pace friends, but I also have to admit that it was fun. I had no idea what to say, so I just said what I would want someone to say to me when I'm struggling.
