Not only is the scenery gorgeous during the race but it is my hometown which means...family and friends...running my old routes...being back in my hometown for a weekend! I'm sure the girls didn't mind jumping on the trampoline for hour with their cousins either!
Samantha and her super sweet friend!
1:22:44slightly faster than the official time but still UNDER 1:25!!! I was so excited!!!!! Looking back over the results I found out I was 35th in my age group of over 300 women (of course it got me that there were 4 girls in my age group that finish literally a second before me...ugh!)! I ran into fellow ZOOMA girl Jess at the finish line...said my goodbyes...and headed back to my parents for some rest!
I would highly recommend Newport 10 Miler to anyone looking for a race in RI to do! It was very well organized...BEAUTIFUL to run...and not expensive! They have great finish line snacks and even a beer garden sponsored by Harpoon! Plus they moved it to June which makes it a great time to make a weekend of it! I honestly look forward to this race each year!!!
