I'm happy with my race, even if I slowed somewhat in the second half. Chip time was 1:47:54, a PPPB by just over 2 minutes. I thought I might be able to chase down the 1:45 bunny, but it wasn't meant to be today. I should count myself lucky that I had such an uneventful run, though...a friend who came to stay with us this weekend (she and her husband were both doing the half) had the following things happen during her race: She got thrown up on, she herself threw up, she stepped on a squirrel, AND she needed medical attention. Yoy!
Your friend takes the cake on bad race experiences. Was it a live squirrel? The only thing she was missing was stepping in diarrhea from the guy running with the runs in front of her!
Yep. Live squirrel. Bolted in front of her and she stepped on its tail.
I should also add that she had to discard her red-Gatorade-puke stained white running skirt mid-race - thankfully she wore shorts underneath - and then had to turn around and run back to her puke-skirt when she realized she'd left her car key in the pocket.
She was ordering double Caesars at lunch afterwards, and I don't blame her.
You can't even make up stories like this... yowsers!
