Well, we basically owned this race. Our goal was to come in under 4:00 - a pretty challenging goal, honestly, and I had been pretty worried going into the race... but every single team member showed up and tore it up on the road. Our final time: an ass-kicking 3:47:21. That's under a 9 minute mile pace. Everybody beat their goal time significantly, and together we basically shattered our overall goal.

It was a pretty exhausting and emotional day. :)



As you can see in the screencap, we placed 116/753 - top 15% - in our division (mixed M/F team), and we placed 208/1110 - top 18% - out of all the relay teams. That's ridiculous.

I'm so proud of our team.

(And I came in at 71.4 minutes for my leg, meaning I ran 7.9 miles at a 9:02/mile pace. I have absolutely no idea how this happened.)

Ooooooooooooh! *applause applause*

Can we say "mission accomplished?"

Nice sponsors, by the way. Are they real or is that my wishful thinking talking?

I still can't get over it!! I can't believe how awesome the five of us are!

By the way, I still have the stomach cramps, although they've become much milder. So I think I caught some sort of flu bug, or maybe I got a little food poisoning. Thank God I didn't start feeling sick until (immediately) after I was done running!

Ugh, ouch :/ I am pretty sore in my thighs, but otherwise I'm okay. I hope your stomach feels better soon!
