Woke up at 4:30. The race started at 7 and had to be there around 5:30 to get on the bus to the start line. It was a little cool that morning so I wore a long sleeve until I had to drop my bag. I also ran the first time in a Lululemon running skirt. I really liked it. There are black shorts built in under the skirt. Way more fun than shorts.
The race was good. The weather was perfect. 60 and overcast. I felt good the entire time with only little knee pain. I started out very slow. I think I could have started a little quicker and then I could have got under my goal of under 2 hours. I still remind myself that this run was just for a practice race before the marathon and try not to give myself a hard time.
I ended strong. And had a great cheer team waiting for me that the finish line. I love these people.
Here are the results.
Do you like shorts or running skirts?
If you prefer shorts, which ones do you like the best? I find that a lot of shorts balloon out and I don't like that. I think this is why I like my skirt so much.
Now I just need to convince my sisters to wear a skirt for Grandma's marathon.
If you do like running skirts let us know which brand you like the best?
