|Post-race: I know I look a mess|
5:00 Recommended time to be in starting corral and ready to go
4:15 We allowed 45 minutes for walking, waiting in line for the shuttle, riding the shuttle, and navigating the starting area
3:15 I need at least an hour to get up and going, because of course I had to look beautiful.
3:00 In case I decide I need 15 minutes of extra sleep, I need to wake up 15 minutes earlier than I think.
So, I was awake at 3 AM. Seriously. But anyway, I got everywhere mostly ok, then the race began with singing and fireworks and all that other magical stuff, and I ran my very first half-marathon, mostly successfully. I may not have finished in my goal time, but I did finish still running. In the interest of keeping my posts here fairly short and sweet, I will end this one right here. I will, however, post about something else I got from this experience, besides plenty of souvenirs and a blingin' medal. Stay tuned, it's coming super soon. Promise!
