2:12:36

What an amazing race today! I blew my goal out of the water, unofficially finishing in 2:12:36. Officially it will be around 2:17....I had to pee at mile 2 and my actual mileage at the finish line was probably closer to 13.2. I stopped Garmin at 13.1 miles, though, so I'm not sure exactly how much extra it was.

According to Garmin, my average pace was 10:07 min/mile.

The first 3.1 miles were my fastest 5k yet--30:05.

I ran the last mile in 10:01.

Those are the digits I remember. Garmin's battery's dead so I'll recharge it tomorrow and post more stats & a longer report.

I just got back from Bob Evans where I had cinnamon hotcakes with Mark & Sophie (Luke's at my mom's).

All in all, it was a most excellent day.

Now it's time for a nap.

A MOST excellent day!!! And how fun to see a race time as your header instead of your weight! I can hardly imagine running for that long.
