PF Changs Rock & Roll Marathon and Half Marathon

Well? It's done. We all finished. I feel pretty good right now for having run 13.1 miles although I am a bit sunburned. Patty walked it with her sister Maureen who was doing her very first one. They actually ran some too they said. They both looked real good afterwards. I am proud of them both. I never did see Obie and Jen though. I looked for them. But to tell you the truth, this is a huge event and it's kind of hard to find two people out of about 35,000.

I started in the very back with Patty and Maureen. They did a wave start this year which was a little bit different that last year. There were 24 corrals and we were in 23. This year they only released 1 corral at a time so we didn't even hit the starting line until at least a half hour after the gun went off. But we will receive a real time based on our chip we wore on our shoes. I finished somewhere around 2 hours and 30 minutes. I forgot to turn my watch off after I crossed the finish line and didn't realize it for awhile. The official times will be posted by 7 pm on their website. I could have done much better, but it was so crowded dodging in and out of all the walkers. I'm glad the full marathon I will be running in in February is much smaller. Patty and Maureen think they came in around 3 hours and 30 minutes. we really won't know for sure until after 7 PM tonight.

I'm already showered and cleaned up. Patty's getting ready now. We're going to head out in a bit and enjoy some good old PF Changs chinese food. Yummy yummy! Will update later tonight! Blessings to you all.
