Like I said in my previous post though, I'm glad I stuck it out long enough to at least finish the half. I would have felt even worse if I wasn't able to complete anything. So here are the professional pics:
At first I was felt the cold (it was making me numb)
but I was still doing ok at this point.
About an hour into the race it might have been sunny but it was still freezing to me.
I couldn't get warm, and by this point you can tell be my face
that my muscles were cramping up. At this point I really wanted to quite.
However, I came to this race to finish a run, and wearing my "Go Vegan!"
singlet really encouraged me not to stop until I finished something. So I pushed through it, determined to at least complete the half.
The finish line is in sight! I remember thinking, "come on Amanda! Give it all you've got, your almost done. I know your in pain but you can do it! Just a few more feet."
Another metal to add to my growing collection. =)
Be on the look out for another post Sunday night. I've have/had fun plans for this weekend that I'm squeezing in between homework and training. Stay tuned...
