This is a map of the Cheseboro 1/2 Marathon I ran today. I have to confess that I was not as diligent in my training as I should have been, but I am pretty sure this course wouldn't have seemed much easier even if I had trained better. The first 2 miles were on streets, the next 8 on a trail (a pretty difficult trail in my humble opinion), then the remaining 3 on streets again. I am so glad I did it! It's such a great accomplishment and I am pleased with my performance.
Unfortuantely, Spencer and the kids got to their spot to watch us come in about 5 minutes after I finished, so no pic of me running. I was waiting a little ways up from the finish line waiting for Anneli to come in when they saw me and this was the first picture he got.
The kids are not accustomed to not seeing me first thing in the morning so they both needed some extra attention as soon as they saw me. I'm so glad they came to show their support!
