Amy and her husband Chris (aka race photographer extraordinaire!) Even though the weather was raw, I let the girls run around inside to get the wiggles out!!
I had little expectations for race day since I knew the course was hilly and a toddler/cousin sleepover meant I had an early morning wake-up, but I put on my gear...slid on the tutu...grabbed my water and out the door I went.
Amy and Chris, Jessica, and Janine and her mom!

|It's not a Newport race unless there is a viking out there!! Newport is the Vikings!|
I walked back (after squatting down for a bit) and cheered on the rest of the crew! I couldn't be more proud of myself today! Those early miles where I was just feeling awesome and cruising along built confidence in me that I have been looking for! A little more work fueling and speed and I'm ready to hit my sub 1:50 half!!!! Many thanks to the kind lady that came up to me after the race and comment on how she was chasing the yellow tutu for 7 miles! It feels good to be chased instead of the chaser!!
