Now that I’m home, the Garmin has been uploaded, and the photos have been put up, it’s time for part 2 of the Solider Field 10 miler wrap up.
(Hey, it’s the first time I’ve run in 6 weeks, really. I’m gonna post about it as much as I want.)
Look at our awesome medals!
I’m not even going to show you my splits. They’re not pretty. Hahahaha. But here’s where we went:
The field was amazingly crowded. Here’s an aeriel view of the start area:
We squeezed into the open corral around the 10 minute mile pace sign and posed for the camera:
Running along the lake with the skyline in the distance was just so amazing. This photo doesn’t do it even semi-justice.
I took a really silly video, HAHAHAH.
Some woman got in the way of what would have been an awesome race photo:
Here’s me booking it to the finish (I didn’t warn Erin I was going to take off, hahaha):
Look how cool it was to finish in the stadium:
I got ice on my leg and posed with the EXTREME sign, hahahah!
I convinced Erin we needed a photo of our post-race selves in the bean:
Basically, we had fun and ran on an amazing course on a gorgeous day. Considering my injury, it was really the best I could have hoped for.
I already miss Erin. ♥
