Saturday night we all met at Peppers for some necesssary carbo loading! The food was great and the company was even better. We never ran out of things to talk about. Of course what's dinner without a picture!!
|Ready for some carb loading|
|Ready to run 13.1|
When the race started my plan was to stay with Missi and Kim. I lost them on the course for a few minutes but I did run into Amanda and we talked for a few minutes and then I went on my way. Fortunately I was able to find Missi and Kim on the course again. Missi was looking really strong so my goal was to stay as close to her as possible. At some point Missi got out ahead of me and I just kept her in sight and tried to catch up to her, which never actually happened. I was pretty tired and was continually saying to myself "seriously Jodi, suck it up". It worked to keep me moving forward so that was a plus. I was pretty confident that I would achieve sub-2 for most of the race so needless to say I was very happy when I crossed the line in 1:58:45. Definitely not too shabby with minimal training. Once at the finish line I found out there were lots of PR's in our group. I was so happy for each and everyone of them.

Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
