The day started with nervousness and anxiety. I woke up early (1:50am) and started my mental preparation long before any physical warm up took place. I got lost getting to the route (of course) because of the change in traffic patterns. My GPS voice (let's call her Glenda) kept telling me to make the next legal u-turn. Since I couldn't make a u-turn an argument ensued (needless to say I turned Glenda off). When I eventually pulled up to the correct parking lot I was the 2nd person there. My early bird mentality was apparently shared by few in Sunrise, FL.
Slowly more cars pulled up and my fellow runners piled out. I was a little intimidated to see all the 'very-fit-I-can-run-forever-3%-
The race itself was amazing. It was well organized and had a great turnout (RedBull gives you wiings and gets ALOT of publicity). They started on schedule (they had to because of the very nature of the world run)
Sadly, I was not able to make it very far before the catcher car "caught" me...
I did however walk to the 10K marker...
Despite the pain and not making my distance goal I still had a great time.
Kai and Ree made a special sign for me....
And I had the best Wings for Life Support Team ever!!!
See you in 2015!!!
