Valentine's Day Dash

Today I ran in the Valentine's Day Dash along with 2,000+ other people. Notice anything about the verb in the previous sentence? That's right - there are no quotes around the word ran! Yay me! And just like that #15 on my 32 Things List is done.

I started off slow amongst the hordes of people. As I came up to the first mile marker, I wasn't sure if I was going to make it, but I kept plodding along. Once I hit the second mile marker I knew I was good. After all, I only had one mile to go! The last mile went by fairly fast, and then the last little bit to the finish line. Woohoo!

I finished in 37.23 - which is pretty good for me.
