It was a perfect morning for running here in the nation's capital, and I joined my fellow 26,000 runners for a great race! I had a good time, felt good, ran a pretty consistent race, and finished in my approximate timeframe.
Chip times haven't been posted yet, but my Garmin time for 10.22 miles (yeah, did me some swerving there!) was 1:41:56. I had hoped to finish in under 1:40, but I'm not at all disappointed in the finish time: DC is hilly and the race was crowded.
Anyhoo, I'll post a longer, more detailed report with pictures when I return to FL. Right now, I'm gonna go have lunch with my dad, then pack up my bags, and get ready for my afternoon flight home.
Thanks for all your good wishes!
