Finished up the 8-miler just before the pouring rain hit this morning. Kept a pretty consistent 12:25/mile pace and felt great. Definitely teared up a little bit in the last mile, overwhelmed by the pride and accomplishment I felt for myself. Also, my previous trainer was running back to help me run the last bit, just like she did last year.
I am too tuckered out to do a full recap now, but will have something up on the blog soon!
