It started at 8 so we were there by 7 to get registered, no preregistering for us, lol and that was nice, sure a lot of excitement going on down there, they even had a warm up lady for us to get us going. We started and I started slowly jogging and it was all good till about 1K and I just wanted to fall down crying my shins hurt so much. The route went by the seniors home and I was super temped to just stop and sit with them and watch the rest. I was kinda angry I been resting like I was told and I had lots of air and energy coulda gone a lot farther but now I could hardly move. Neil come and passed me and so did a lot of other people. It was all I could do to keep going, I walked awful slow and stretched till about 3K and they felt a little better so walked a little more normal and even made it back to a jog for the last half K. It was awful, I come in with a time of 47:45, Neil with 45:59. The first guy crossed at 23:23 haha no way I could ever do that but that was a lot slower than I wanted, I was pretty upset.
But at the finish line was a guy handing out water and medals and fruit and all along the route was cheerers and it was kinda cool. I would so do it again when my shins get better which I am gonna have to be more proactive about healing them up but I have till next fall to go in this one again.
