It was just above freezing as the race started, but we did get a pic with the Easter bunny!
It was the last mile that was the worst. I could see the finish line. I knew I was close to making my goal. But I suddenly got very very nauseous and had to throw up. I'd feel fine for a bit and then throw up again seconds later. I probably threw up about eight times during that last mile.
I ended up finishing in 2 hours, and 15 seconds. Sixteen seconds too slow.
I'm really, really disappointed. But the afterparty was fun (there was also free beer!) and I bought myself a cool sweatshirt because I was freezing and I felt like my PR/barfing fiasco warranted a souvenir. ;)
Overall, it was a great race. It was well-organized, there were TONS of very helpful volunteers (a special thank you to all of the police officers!), and really fun. I'm already looking forward to next year!
Readers, how was your weekend?
