Great day but the chicken I had with my carbo load dinner the night before messed me up and I was really hurting during mile 8, so I had to wait in line at the port-o-potty. Sucks. I think between the walking and the bathroom break, I think I tacked on maybe 5-7 minutes, unfortunately. But it was nice to see my husband, friends, and parents at the end. Good race!
What would you do differently?:

Run faster :)
