I was so far from the starting line that I barely heard the horn. When I crossed I got to see Philadelphia Mayor, Michael Nutter. Big deal!
At City Hall (just over 5 miles), there was noise that Governor Ed Rendell was there. I didn't see him.
I had to walk through the water/gatoraide station at just after 7 miles. I needed the fluids. I walked again after the 8 mile station. But I didn't walk more than a minute at either point so I'm calling it
I RAN THE ENTIRE 10 MILES!!!
I came home & slept for 30 minutes. I haven't showered yet. I'm waiting for Erin to finish getting ready for work. She needs to hurry--I can smell myself. EWWWW
I'm going to Champp's for a burger & Messy Sundae!!!
ETA: My official time was 1 hour, 53 min, 06 seconds. I came in 17,201 out of 19,111 finishers. I came in 844 out of 955 in my age group (40-44). I finished 7,977 out of 9,290 women finishers. I must run faster next year. Yeah, right. Maybe.
Oh & my legs are KILLING ME. In a very good way.
