This is the third year that my husband and son have run this race with me. My son's goal was to beat me, and I thought this might be the year. Last year I beat him by 2 minutes. He started out getting ahead of me, and from there I didn't see him again. It kept me running as quick as I could. I was very proud of him. At mile 2 the St. Olaf Cross Country team was cheering everyone on and giving out water. I heard them scream, "Here comes the first woman!" I looked around and realized that they were talking about me. That motivated me even more so I think my 2nd and 3rd mile were quicker than my first. I was really excited to be the first woman to cross the finish line.
What would you do differently?:

NOTHING!! Great race for me.
