Well friends, I did it!
It was rainy and windy and cold, but I finished. (and maybe most importantly, I didn't get sick!)
Not that it matters too much, I guess, but my time was a little slower (2:04ish) than the one I did in September (2:01). Maybe it was because I had trained better for the September race, and maybe it was because this course had a lot more hills, but it's all good. My goal was to finish, and finish I did.
The neat thing about this race was that you finished on the 50 yard line of the Gophers' stadium. As I ran down the tunnel and onto the field I might have pretended for a little bit that I was a fabulous football player. But then my tired legs almost tripped on the ramp going down, so I stopped pretending and went back to focusing on actually making it to the field... :)
And proof I finished....
