Honest Tea with small goals. Before I get ahead of myself let me start with Friday's number pick-up and party.
After our weekly play date at the park with friends, we came home to meet up with fellow ambassador Dani who was coming from Somerville and staying with us! I walked up to unlocked the door and had a spiffy care package waiting for me from Honest Tea!

I woke up on race day at 5am (start was at 7:30), drank some coffee and had my English muffin with peanut butter. I probably should have eaten more since around mile 3 I had a grumbly tummy but I hadn't eaten much in the past few days and didn't want to risk it! Got dressed and off we went...may I add that Dani always has the most perfectly coordinated race outfits! Seriously the girl has skills...and Sparkle Skirts!

I had done it! I didn't pr...not even close...but I didn't let the race beat me...I didn't let me beat me! I know there will be cruddy runs ahead but knowing that I do have it in there shows me that there will be a day where I am crossing that finish line with a smile and my goal time on the clock!!!
ZOOMA Cape Cod course was hilly but wow you really can't beat the views...cranberry bogs, ocean views, and an awesome Shining Sea Bikepath! I have loved being involved in this race with all the great women of ZOOMA! Honestly as cheesy as it sounds, I have made such great friends with my fellow ambassadors!! The race was very well organized and the little perks were worth it all! You really can't beat your toes in the sand...wine in hand...and a massage post race!!
