My finish time was 52:48 and average pace was 8:30 min/mile. There were 4104 participants and I placed #675 and in my age group there were 1492 women and I placed #248. Not bad, eh? The Olympic womens running team was also a part of the race; which I thought was pretty cool.
The best part of the whole race was around 2.5 miles. I had just conquered the huge hill of Harlem Hills and was heading down when I spotted Isabella on top of Brian's shoulders. I waved and blew kisses as they cheered me on. I loved it more than anything!
