The race was the Whooping Crane Strut in Rockport, TX. The run went on a path along the beach through a nature preserve. I really enjoyed all the birds flying around and the breeze when I wasn't desperately hoping/looking for the turn around. I ended up doing this run in 39:45 and powered through the last half mile. I think I was practically flying so I could cross the finish line and be done. Probably, the only additional hickup was forgetting my long sleeve running shirt at home. I was really cold at the beginning of the race, so I kept my sweater on, but ended up taking it off while running and repinning my number during the end of the first mile. Whoops.
Overall, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but I can definitely do better. I'll leave you with a couple pics and then I'm off to see the horses!
