wish me luck.
3 p.m. update: Survived.
Parts of it weren't pretty, but I crossed the finish line under my own power;
got the bagel, banana, and T-shirt.
And all that only 5 minutes slower than my last (2006) time-
not too bad, considering I had at least 3 things going against me:
- Way too warm for me to be running (anything over 75ºF, and I wilt);
- The Mucus Fairy is still being generous, after a week with this head cold;
- and it was the wrong time of the month for a girl to be running.
All things considered, I think I earned that beer down at the pub after.
And the crew at the pub declared me the winner! (First down at the pub.)
The gal who came from the race to the pub but just got a take-away bottle?
