Official time: 1:16:22 — 8:12 pace

I’m extremely proud of this race! I started off pretty fast, and even clocked 7:56 for mile two, but slowed down a bit after that. Still, I held a challenging pace, attacked the hills in mile 8, and passed quite a few people in the final stretch.

And I finished strong, with my hand over my heart for Boston.

Full recap to come. Gotta go run 10 more.

I ran it in 33:32 and was dying at the end. Not sure how I managed to look so nice and carefree! Probably because of all the adrenaline that instantly got me hooked on racing.

Yes, my t-shirt says, “This Girl Can Party!”

(I’ve shaved 7 minutes and 7 seconds off that time, by the way. Yee-haw!)
