I ran the Big D Texas Half!

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 11:23 am

YAY ME! I ran the whole way and finished in 2:54:27 (according to my watch…we’ll see what my “official chip time” is later). Whew! I was doing a 13 min mile through mile 8 and feeling really good. I started to slow down a little after some big hills (big hills for Dallas) through miles 9 & 10. Then 11 to the finish was tough. Near the end there I wanted to stop and walk, but I was really shooting for a sub-3 hour finish, and I was so close I wasn’t about to let myself quit! Woo Hoo! I made it to the end with barely enough gas in the tank to get across the finish. And, I got my 3rd finishers medal. I have 3 now! So, if you Dallas-ites see a green VW Jetta with medals hanging from the rear-view mirror…wave! it’s me!

Then, after I finished I did something nice for someone else. This older lady looked lost in the parking lot, and I asked her if she lost her car. She said she had and didn’t know where it was and the area wasn’t looking familiar to her. So, after I got in my car, I looked for her to see if she had found it yet. She was still walking around looking very perplexed, so I drove up and asked her if she’d like me to drive her around. She got in, and after talking with her for a few minutes, I realized she was on the complete opposite side of the lot than where she had parked. I drove her back across the lot and within a few minutes we found her car…with Florida plates! Glad I could help someone in need. Do something nice for someone today…it will make you feel good.

  2. I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the web shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.
