The weather was uncooperative (to say the least)---which began Thanksgiving day when we braved the snow storm warning and left early to make it to Seattle. We made it safe and sound and had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at my BIL's.
The next few days brought in rain showers on and off and I kept my fingers crossed, hoping that the rain would let up for the marathon.
.....and it did!
Woke up at 5 am on Sunday to have my usual pre-run breakfast...
... my half-marathon wardrobe of choice (Temp was 38 degrees at 6 am)
Then hubby took us to the starting line downtown
...16,000 people signed up
I placed 183 out of 591 in my age group with an official time of 2:09, average pace of 9 min. 41 sec per mile.
Here's what my Garmin said...
...Overall, it was such a FUN and exciting first experience for me...I was proud to have accomplished it and who knows....maybe I'll have it in me to do another one soon...
