Saturday was a beautiful day for a walk.
A long walk.
We started the Run Like a Girl Half Marathon shortly after 9 am...and we were finished 3 hours and 22 minutes later.
Pre-race I just had to get a picture with my two favorite flaggers!
This Run Like a Girl Marathon is a very non-competitive, fun event. We enjoyed break stops that were called things like "The Espresso Mile" (we got coffee in the form of chocolate), "The Pedicure Mile" (sign up to win a free pedicure), "The Gratitude Mile", and "The Chocolate Mile" (dark chocolate).
Here I am with my walking friends at the halfway turnaround "The Maui Mile": Oh, did I forget to mention "The Princess Mile" when we got our tiaras?
The walk went along our interurban trail, a very scenic path, and I stopped long enough to take this picture (at this point we were well on our way back and any time we stopped we really wanted to STOP so we just tried to keep going).
Our final pace was 15:04 minutes per mile. We were going pretty fast, and even passed some that were run/walking the route. And, success, we finished!
Two days later I am still sore, but the pain is fading.
We are definitely going to do it again next year - and planning to talk a few more friends into joining us!
