|Close to the Finish Line|
I’m only a week late with this post..LOL.. Ended up definitely NOT as fast as I had hoped, but a ton on FUN overall! Lots of rolling hills, weather at the race start was beautiful, and the scenery was amazing!
|Post- Race Wine!|
My fellow SRRC buddy, RacingTales, provided a wonderful race recap in her recent blog post-http://racingtales.wordpress.com/2011/06/05/warning-angry-runner-in-wine-country/ .
Around mile 8, I caught up with my friend, Dash. We ran together for a little while until she told me to hang on to my pace and go ahead. Her recent blog post also provides a wonderful race recap- http://rundash.blogspot.com/2011/06/virginia-wine-country-half-marathon.html .
Definitely check this race out- despite the delayed start and the transportation kinks.. The race organizers did a great job. Oh, and I must mention that SRRC won the team challenge!! Yeah! We each received a bottle of wine from Breaux Vineyards. By far, one of the best race prizes I’ve ever won! 🙂
