Wow

Holy crud folks! All your nice comments have me close to tears.

I was thinking of all of you as I crossed those 5k mats. It definitely helped me push the pace when I wasn't feeling so hot! I kept telling myself that people were tracking me and I had to do well.

Official Time 3:31:04, 8:03 pace.

More details and photos to come soon!

Gotta get to work, just got off the plane and I am going to work until my hubby can come pick me up later tonight.

Thank you all so much for your support. It is truly overwhelming.

You are such a speed demon! Great job...

Get lots of rest sweetie!

Clearly you don't brag about your running nearly as much as you should.

Congrats my dear. I'm humbled.

You ran so well! Congratulations!

It was fun keeping track of splits online. It made the morning go much faster at work.

You're amazing!

Holy crud! Yay for Eastern Ohio! (My grandparents live up in Cuyahoga Co. which is the immediate Cleveland vicinity). What's up with "5K mats"? Why would you need a mat, anyhow? Sounds like a curb---they'd have to ban wheelchairs, which they might not be able to bc of the ADA law). Maybe I don't understand what a "mat" even is. Did most of my racing in 90-92, though, as a kid.
