No "Dilly Dilly"...

“The forecast is gonna be what?” I asked.


“40 degrees, 25-35mph headwind, and heavy rain,” Nicholas responds solemnly. 


“We’re screwed.”


2 days later I found myself in the pit of misery (no dilly dilly to be had) sloshing my way through the suburbs of Boston. I went out too fast, wore too little clothing, and was drenched to my core. At about mile 22 my body went from racing to survival mode. Glad I was able to kind of hang on and make it to the finish line. Upon reaching the finish line, medical personnel took care of me because I was shaking so bad. I'm so thankful for the volunteers and staff. I'm also overwhelmed by all of the support I received from family and friends. Huge thanks to Katie Braam PaquetteZach Barrett, and Christina Roberts for flying out and spectating in the weather....

 

 

Can't wait for my next race with Jordan Roby and Nicholas Kizzire. Next time I hope we do a 5k instead. 


Overall place: 360, Gender place: 354, Time: 2:46:30
