I did it, didn't think I wanted to but after a year and a bit I decide I could and then I'd never have to do it again. I was the fasted little fat girl out there and I did great for my first run. There were a few minutes where I had to breathe deeply and calm down and say a prayer but as I was finishing I saw my friend Mandy cheering me on. I heard the announcer mention that this was my first run and I sprinted to the end in my little fat girl sprint. It was amazing, running through they said I could stop running and I even received a metal. So cool.
So recap: The first two miles were fairly easy keeping a 14 minute mile. The last 1.1 mile was the kicker, I hadn't practice this part and it was set up as a double helix since that was who was sponsoring the run. It was up down curve curve all the way til the end with the incline to the finish.
I did it, I didn't let my fears of my looks take over and I did my best. I now want to do it again.
