My view on the way!
My friend Catherine, her sis Meghan, and I from Fort Worth MRTT and then the rest are Rockwall MRTT ladies! :)
We had pretty views at the starting line! :)
In this pic, to the right, is the building everyone was huddled against trying to stay warm and out of the wind!
I was so excited to wear my 13.1 Shubeez on my shoes! :)
Everyone should have Shubeez on their shoes!!
Everyone was ready to get started!
And we were off! :)
These ladies wore poodle skirts to run in! They were so cute!
And yes, I was a stalker taking picks of their behinds! lol
I did eventually catch up and say Hi and that I liked their skirts! :)
Starting to go uphil...
Yes it seemed like we were going uphill forever!
There were some VERY pretty houses along the route!
And a lovely view of Downtown Dallas!
My hubby loves the Chive, so I had to take a pic of this! lol :)
This is when we were getting so close to the end!
Then I crossed the finish line!
I was just so happy to be done.
Then my phone died.
I had a friend waiting for me and luckily she was waiting at the finish and found me since I couldn't text or call her!
But I had no way to let my hubby know I was done until I got back to my car!
Which was another mile walk.
I was probably very dumb for even attempting this race.
I walked over half of it and my hip was KILLING me by the end.
I wish I could say I learned my lesson, but I'm pretty sure that if I've already paid for a race, I would still end up dong it again! haha :)
My time was Horrible.
I learned that I am able to push myself mentally when i really want to give up.
There were many medical tents along the way, and I seriously thought about stopping and calling it quits. But I knew if I could just walk over that finish line, I could still be proud of myself.
13.1 miles later, I (stupidly) ran over that finish line and called my self a Dallas Rock N Roll Half Finisher!!!
My Fitbit even called me an Overachiever! haha :)
I ended the day with 15 miles and over 32, 000 steps! That's crazy! :)
Then, I came home to this adorable child who helped me Foam Roll!
She is just so cute! :)
It was a decent race, but I am not sure I would do it again.
The Rock N Roll races have a lot of hype around them, but a lot of it is over priced and over hyped.
I enjoyed the Cowtown half much more and would run that one again over the Dallas RNR!
I am glad that I can say I finished another 13.1 though!!! :)
