*chip mat for “mile 16” was over a minute after the actual mile 16 marker-my mile 16 split according to my watch was 2:16:19, 8:31 pace-didn’t think I slowed that much!!

make no mistake, it was tough, i sure had to fight for it in the last few miles. and i don’t know what the hell happened with my first 5k split πŸ™‚

on the other hand…today just reminded me what great friends i have, and what great mental toughness I have. and that, my friends-is what got me to the finish line when I did πŸ™‚

more to come-it’s celebration time!!
