I went, I ran, I froze my ass off (seriously peeps, my ass has NEVER been so cold while running in my LIFE), and I finished.
And it wasn't pretty. My 2:44:20 finish time is my slowest 1/2 Marathon time EVER (but it includes an 7 minute wait for a 30 second porta-potty stop at mile 7...My Garmin time was 2:38...GAH), but still I was unbelievably SLOW...and did I mention Effing COLD?
Also...Many props to Walter, my love and life-partner, who is the best freekin' Sherpa EVER! I do love this guy...
I'll make a full race report later this week, but until then there's this.
Walter took the photo at about mile 13...do I look relaxed? No? I didn't think so. But I am still running, so that's a good thing, right?
And of course this...
It took awhile to get to them, and they were only average Mimosas at the MGM, but they well earned, for both of us.
