Tyler Rose Marathon

Well I guess it is time to write the race report. I have been a big slacker on blogging lately. All I can say about the Tyler rose marathon is HILLY!! It was the toughest course I have ever ran!!!I started out running with the DRC 4 hour pace group. I stayed with them all the way until mile 18. The first 18 miles really felt great. Then I got tired. I was so ready to be done. My husband ended up running the last part with me and I am so happy that he did. He kept me motivated to keep going and finish with a good time. I ended up running it in 4:05:48. I was really happy with my time considering how difficult the course was. The course was really pretty with lots of beautiful houses. At the finish line they handed out medals and a rose bush. They were also passing out samples of my favorite yogurt from TCBY!! Yummy!! All of my family was there cheering me on. I love having them there.

I am looking forward to running White Rock marathon in December. This course is suppose to be more flat. So hopefully sub 4 is in my future.

Getting setup with the pace group!!
Very excited to see my family!!!
After the Race!!
