10 post-race miles: DONE.
I hung out at home for a few hours after the race, eating lots of food and refreshing Online Race Results obsessively until the official results were posted. I was the 21st female, 6th in my division, and 57th overall out of 309 finishers. Whoop!!!
And then I surprised myself with how good my legs felt, and with the pace I was able to maintain during the 10 miles.
The last few miles were really mentally tough because I had been running… for… so… longgggg.
And now I’m stupid-tired and hanging out on the floor, from which I’ll only rise to get food.
Total miles: 19.3
Total running time: 2:44:23
Overall average pace: 8:30
Total calories burned (according to Garmin): 2,128
Make that lots and LOTS of food.
