UPDATE: Apparently, I was right and chip was wrong. They adjusted all the times this morning due to a "data error." It's still 5 PRs for the price of one, though. So TST = Super Happy. :)
I am absolutely GIDDY!
I couldn't have asked for a more perfect race or day. I fizzled a bit the last 5K, but other than that, today was the culmination of a lot of work and dedication over several years. I may not be Boston material yet, but I'm gettin' there. :)
When I got to the 4 mile marker, I looked at my watch and thought, "Hmmm. There's a new PR."
Then I got to the 5 mile marker under 40 minutes and thought, "Well then. Another one."
Then I got to the 10K in 49:40 and checked another PR off again.
Then I got to 10 miles and thought, "HOLY CRAP. Can I hold onto this?"
Then the other shoe started to drop and reality set in. :) My Garmin kept going in and out (stupid buildings) and my watch said just a few seconds over 1:47, which was still a 3 minute PR and I was REALLY happy with. There's been a bit of a finishing time controversy, but it seems to be solved now.
Regardless, this was a big day for me, and I couldn't be happier! A full report will come later, but for now I'm timing up a little snooze in my new lounge chair in the backyard (my Mother's Day present from Bug and Matt!) with Bug's nap.
It was a good day for racing, indeed. :)
