So proud!

I am so proud of myself for finishing the race!!! My unofficial time is 1:13 and some seconds! I am so proud of the amount I actually ran! I was hoping to make it in by 1:15 and I beat that for sure!!! I will say that I got really sick after, my stomach cramped up and I am not sure why. I am feeling mich better now! I am very happy with the experience but that distance might be the farthest I can go. Towards the end I was really dreading finishing. I was tired and I just wanted to walk. I realized that it was ALL mental. I had to stop over thinking what was actually happening. When I was running, I would tell myself that I needed to rest so i could power through later. I stopped and examined what was tired on my body. My legs didn't hurt, my arms sure didn't hurt and I had my breathing under control. Every time I wanted to stop jogging I would go through my mental checklist. If anything was tired I would walk but if not I kept going. I was psyching myself out mentally, and in the past this has really messed me up, not just in running but in all aspects of life. Remember when you think you can't do something go through the metal checklist of all the bad things that you think are happening. I have surprised myself on how much I can actually accomplish when I stop over thinking things.

On another note I have 1 day left on the $100k body transformation contest! I can't believe how within reach it is!!! Woo!!

Here are some pics from the race. I think I need some smaller shirts!!!!
