    Beth, this is a great RR!  You know I totally look up to you, and think you're a great role model for everyone.  As one of those older, slower people, it's nice to see you continue to improve and to feel confident and excited---which comes through in your report -- it helps me believe I can, too.  Good luck at your marathon.  I know you're going to crush it.

      plus I'm pretty slow and boring.  I don't think you are either of those things, actually.  5 miles in 45 minutes?  That is FAST to me..I'd have been about 20 minutes behind you, lol.   And very nice report, not boring at all.   Good gracious, that photo!  That is some way to start a race, sand followed by a hill!

       

      Congrat on your race, Beth, you rocked it!

        Thanks so much Pink, you are just so nice and encouraging to everyone. That is just the beginning

        of the hill. You should see it from the top!LOL

         

        What an awesome race, Beth!!   The "hill" in that picture looks intimidating to me!   I'm so happy that it's all coming together now just in time for your race!!  You've trained well, and I cannot wait to read how you just totally OWN your upcoming marathon!!!  Go, Beth, GO!!!

         

         SheCan, that really means a lot to me. And yes after 10 years of racing I still get excited! I love race

        day because I get to act like a kid and run around having fun in silly outfits!LOL

         Scotty, thanks so much. And actually it was 43:31!LOL  45:26 was the old PR. I wish we had as many short races

        locally as you do. I enjoy them and they don't take much recovery time. I would do a lot more if we had them.

              My reports tend to not be that interesting because I don't remember or write up a huge amount of race details, but LRB likes them so what the hell.

               

              FYP!    Cool

               

              You are so gonna nail your goal race!
