Our entire group before the start...
I started in the 11 minute mile corral because I think it's better, for my race ego, to pass people than the be passed during a race. There were a lot of people running and the race got crowded at times but it wasn't too bad. It was sort of frustrating because I think the 10 mile distance fools a lot of people into thinking that they can do it without any prior training, maybe becuase it's a little less daunting than a half-marathon? But I still think most people would need to either be super athletic or do at least a little training to be able to run that distance and if you are going to start in the 9 minute mile corral, please don't start walking at the one mile marker. (ok... mini-race rant over)
The finish area was pretty cool. It just went by so fast because I was very concerned about finding the banana area and getting something in my system.
Outside the stadium after we finally found each other. Thanks to a random lady who let me use her cell phone!
Coach Amy was in the cheering section for this race.
We got sweet medals! All in all, I'd say it was a success and I'd do it again.
