The race route was pretty straight forward, run one mile straight west out of town, turn around, run up the giant hill back into town and then run the last mile straight east where the kids' course was. I was kind of confused about it while running, I, like most runners, thought that once you made it back to town from the race you were done, I was looking at stats on my phone and it wasn't adding up to be the full 3.1 miles so once I topped the hill and saw the rest of the runners going east I was overwhelmed with "will this ever be over" feelings. That giant hill I just tackled took the wind out of me and I'm not normally a hill runner. Here in Saline County all things are flat (except for tummys and butts).
Oh, and one last thing I learned after this race. The best supporter you can have out on the course is your man! This was one of the first races of mine he's attended and it meant so much to me!! :)
Wanted to throw it in there as a reminder we will be hosting the weekly 30 Days of Gratitude Link-Up this Saturday so get your post ready to show us what you're thankful for each day this month! You can choose to link up as a summary link or as individual days. Can't wait to see you then!
