Our first official race as a team was incredible for a few reasons.
- It was very early. This taught us what it feels like to rise and run.
- It rained the entire race. This taught us to push through discomfort that we cannot control.
- It was crowded and full of distractions. This taught us to focus and remember our goals.
- The more even we go, the more we pace ourselves, the better our time will be. Plus, it is pretty badass to run full throttle through the chute of a stadium and have your family cheering you on! I hung back and did not push so I could see the girls finish. This coach cried before 8AM on Thanksgiving Day. And I am not sorry or sad :).
