Yesterday was the 10 mile Mission Run! This was the 3rd that I have participated in.
Unfortunately, I had to repeat this saying many times to myself. It was a hard run. I blame it on lack of water stations (not sure what the deal was). It was one of those days that I had to give myself a lot of motivational talks. In the end I didn't really didn't do too bad (only 3 minutes longer than last year) but while I was out there I seriously felt like the last person in the race. I guess it's ok to have those days right? And guess what? I'll probably do it again next year. It's a fun race, pretty scenery, inexpensive and local!
Here's part of the Hollister 1st Ward group that ran. Erin (in the pink) and Dave (on the right) and I are the only ones that ran the 10 mile race. The other ones in the picture (and several others) ran the 5k. It was a beautiful, warm day. Who knew you could get a sunburn in January.
This was the last 200 meters of the race. I guess it wasn't too awful if I could still smile. But the real reason I was smiling is all the group that was waiting for me and cheering. That seriously boosts ones spirits! I could see Annette from the end of the street waving. Caroline was the official photographer and Brad is my number 1 fan! I'm so glad for his support!
Erin and Me! We were going for highly visable!
