The race had two events: a half marathon and a 5K. The half marathon started about 30 minutes before the 5K in order to decrease course congestion (we shared the same course the first 1.5 miles). There were about 150 runners in the half marathon so things were never really congested. As I approached mile 1.5 Becky was waiting for me to cheer me on along the way. Becky and I ran together in my original back-to-back weekend in August, so she understands what I am going through this morning.
Momma K has totally been rocking the 60-64 year old age group! Once again, she placed in her age group - this time coming in 3rd place. A 10-minute half marathon PR and a 3rd place age group award in the same weekend?!?! How awesome is she!
As I turned into the finish area, my friend Tim from True Speed Photo saw me coming and had the crowd cheer me in which was awesome! Momma K was right on the side cheering me on while Becky was straight ahead of the finish line. I seriously about fell into her arms when I was done, so thank you Becky for not letting me fall :)
