Since he finished under his goal time of 2 hours, I would say he made the right choice. So proud of my friend for running his first half marathon. The course was not an easy one at all. I chose a course at the beach for my first and blazed right through because it was flat as a pancake. This course had some pretty tough hills, the toughest being in the last mile of the race.
I am still not sure what my finish time was. I didn't see the clock as I crossed the line, but I think it was about 1:30:35. I will know when they post the results online. Here are some shots of us plowing towards the finish. I dont care if you run 1 mile or 50, the finish is always a sweet place to be!
I solicited some of my family and friends of Matt and me to cheer for us along the route. Having fans at a race like this makes all the difference. I am so thankful to my sister and brother-in-law for draggin' the kids out of bed at 6:30 on a Saturday morning to support us!
Our good friends Kati and Meri even got up early to come show their support. What great friends we have!!! Thanks to both of them for sacrificing their Saturday morning sleep!
