The first six miles were a breeze and went by so fast! We knew the big Veyo hill was coming and could see it off in the distance. Mile 7 to 8 were pretty steep. We nutrition-ed and ran walk the biggest part of the hill. From mile 8 to 13 it was uphill. I could already feel my quads burning a little with the up and down. We held our pace and trudged on!
Getting to mile 13 was awesome! Bring on the downhill! I never felt so awesome at the 13 mile mark of a run. My training was paying off. The next 7 miles flew by. There was one gut check hill at mile 19 but other than that it was a gradual downhill.
Mile 20! Virgin territory from here on for me. My feet were starting to feel the pounding and I was starting to feel tired. One 10k to go! Mile 23 and we arrive in town! We had one little uphill at 22 but I was still feeling pretty good.
One 5K to go! At mile 23 my foot started to cramp up. I had to stop and stretch it a few times but was determined to finish strong! A couple of corners and there it was! Ramona had to yell stop sprinting. We finished together and it was awesome!
