Sorry I didn't get a chance to post earlier; I actually had to work at work. Crazy!
Anyway, the races this past weekend went really well. My goal was to finish in under 68 minutes, and I finished in 64:23. I breezed handily up and over the first bridge, and I thought the rest of the race would be just as easy. Of course, I was wrong. I crashed after the first bridge, and the third bridge just before the finish nearly did me in. But I got the time I wanted in the end, and also celebrated with rivers of Coke, a calzone from La Rosa's, and then Chipotle Sunday evening. So all is right with the world!
Keith had a fabulous half-marathon, and Karen pushed past the pain of her heel injury to finish her second marathon in the past year.
So, well done to the Lubbers family! May 4, 2008 will be here before we know it.
