Nashville Half Marathon Update! 2:12:45

My weekend was A-W-E-S-O-M-E!
Friday morning we got up bright and early and drove to Nasvhille, TN. It is about 6 hours from Arkansas, so the drive wasn't too long.
That evening we did some carb loading. Here is a picture of the group:

This is Trish, Bill, Kate, Dawn, and Me!

We all crashed early because to get to the race on time, we had to leave at 5:45. The crummy part is about 3:30 that morning it started pouring down rain. Here are some photos of us before the rain. Notice the trash bags!

This is Bill, Trish, Me, Kate, Dawn and then Lorie and Corinne. They were our cheering section!

Here are few after race photos:

Dawn, Jess, and Julie-Kissing our medals!

Overall, I finished in 2:12:45. I was beyond pleased with my time. I was shooting for 2:05:00, but I will take that time. I came in at 8,445 out of 21,398 half marathon participants.

Later today I'll post the after race pictures! We went down to a club called McFadden's on 2nd Street! We had so much fun! I'll post those once I get them.
