And another shout out to my friend Beth who was my trainer and supporter. She devised an entire training program for me and even simulated a bike course so that I could be prepared for the race. And boy was I prepared. Thanks, Beth. You're the best. Now I'm ready for you to plan my next race, thank you very much...hee, hee.
Here's me on my bike in my fancy running shorts--super sexy. (The reason it's so blurry--why, it's because I am so very speedy).
Here I come. I so wanted to get to the finish line before one hour and fifty-seven minutes!
And I made it! Who knew I looked so good when running?
Jane (who got 3rd in her age group--wa-hoo), me (holding my first place plaque with pride) and Adrienne (who got fourth place in her age group, though they didn't give her a plaque. For shame!)
Me and my lovely plaque. Josh was so proud--he made me take this picture and then, when we got home, he placed the plaque in a place of honor: on our fireplace mantel. And I am really looking good. Did I tell you that it rained during the race? Well, it did.
