I was a little worried because it had rained on and off throughout the night, and was supposed to rain again this morning, but it ended up being perfect weather! The ground was a little muddy at the start but not too bad.
We got to Rawhide and walked around a little bit before it started and saw Big Red and some of the Cardinals cheerleaders. I was determined to get a picture with Big Red before we left. ;)
The race started and we went out FAST... probably a little too fast. I think at one point, she said we were doing an 8:15 pace....
We came up on the first water station and walked through it as we grabbed water. We started running again- and it was hard. We were definitely pushing ourselves! We walked through the second aid station and then practically sprinted the rest of the way to the finish.
|Proof that I was absolutely loving life... ;)|
As I came up to the finish I was too busy waving my hands in the air
we walked around for a little bit and actually caught Big Red leaving and was able to stop him and snap a picture with him!! MADE MY DAY!!
We left with all our hands full of stuff- including a free water bottle from a local news station! This was such a fun, friendly race- with GREAT weather! :)
Who's excited for the Superbowl?!
What's your favorite football team? Mine would have to be the Arizona Cardinals with the Denver Broncos in a close second place. ;)
