It was quite a ride!
Suzy and Kim did very well - impressive, given the race conditions! (35,000 runners - many in costumes - lots of drunk and smoking spectators, 3/4 mile until you could really run after the start) Sam and Pim beat their pace - goals, and darn near carried me over the finish line. They caught up to me at mile 11-12, and when I told them to keep going - they refused. Said I looked really bad. HA! I'm sure I did, and they were AWESOME.
The bad part was the 3 mile walk back to the hotel after.........we DID drink the chocolate milk, and left the beer behind.
Suzy and Kim made it out for dinner after - the rest of us did not. Personally, I had an ice bath and then a hot whirlpool bath.....aaaaahhh.
Monday, however......was EPIC. And Chet & Jill joined us for dinner - they used a date night on us! Impressive. Chet also crushed the course - nobody saw HIM after the start!! And, he was a GREAT cab driver!
So much fun.
Off to ice my PF, Achilles, calf, quads, and whatever else.
