Crossing one of the many bridges during the race. I didn't want to stop to take photos, so I didn't, that was the best I could do on the fly.
Just a shot as we were ambling along.
It was a good race. I decided this morning that I would walk the whole thing due to my back. Believe me, I don't walk much slower than I run. At about 4 miles, my back was hurting so bad I doubted that I could get through the race. I started talking to another woman. She was running, but was so discouraged because I was walking as fast as she was running. At 6 miles, she said I looked like I was having more fun than her and she was miserable, so she was going to just walk along with me. We had the best time! Because I was talking to someone else, I wasn't focused on my pain and I had a good race. It was a lovely day. It is wonderful to be winding through the mountain roads, crossing the creek over and over and over again. Most of the time, it was roaring along side of us. I got to walk along another woman for a little over 8 miles and such an interesting woman! An opera singer!
I am very happy about the race. I am very relieved.
Tomorrow I am heading out on the Amtrak to see my sponsor. I am not taking my computer. I don't know how to post with my iPhone, but I do know it is possible. My intention is to leave the blog alone for a day or two, but we shall see -I haven't been very successful with my attempts at that in the past.
I greatly appreciate your prayers today. I felt lifted by them.
I will sleep well tonight!
