Friday night we ate some DELICIOUS pizza from Pier 49 and picked up all the race packets.
The race was beautiful!! I ran it 5 whole seconds faster than last year :)...1:52.20 I thought I'd do better than that, but started feeling sick around mile 7....SO I didn't finish as strong as I would have liked to...but still it was SO awesome! Ryan did AWESOME and finished his 1st half in just over 2 hours...2:01.48!! I think he is hooked and can't wait to run this one again next year :)
The boys and their 2 cousins ran the '1 mile' race that turned into 2 miles. I guess there was a mix up with the volunteers at the 1/2 mile turn around, so they ended up turning around at one mile. All the boys (13, 11, 8, 7, and 5) all ran 2 miles, but luckily the little girl cousin (4) got turned around at the right distance. It's a good thing too, somehow she didn't make it to the race with running shoes and ran in her Toms and got blisters :( Jake took 1st place overall in that race.
I was going to post a picture of all the runners together, but the only picture that my husband emailed me that I could open was the one of just our family...above.
