That's my freak out moment of the
I don't know how I let my two mid-week runs go by the waste side, but I did. I'm not proud of it, but like I always do, I'm moving on. After all, that's the beauty of training for a Marathon, there's always next week, and the next, and even the week after that!
Sunday was the Army 10 Miler and I was apprehensive going into it. I don't enjoy messing with the chaos of the city and being in unfamiliar territory with 30,000 other people. While there will be TONS of people at the Disney Marathon, I'm ok with it because I know the course like the back of my hand and my surroundings are familiar. I am fully aware that I'm a nut job and my logic is not so logical. :)
Regardless, I went into the race with one goal: To not lose my friend. No, I wasn't worried she wasn't going to make it, I was worried we would get split up. With all those people and not having a cell phone I could only imagine what it would be like trying to meet up later. So the plan was to run side by side. When one of us needed a break, the other took one too. We were a team.
I stayed at her house the night before because as I previously mentioned, city traffic is not my strong suite. Oh and did I mention how much I hate early mornings? It was best I had someone make sure I even got up.
After a crowded, but not long metro ride, we got to the race and realized we needed to get in line for the bathroom before it started. Look at those crazy lines!
Yep, that's us before the race with the Pentagon behind us. It was a perfect fall day!
So happy to be done!
