Bridge Run weekend...

Ahhhh, the race... I woke up at 5:15 am to get ready to meet my girlfriend and her husband before the race. We had such a good time catching up (they live in Richmond). There were tons of people there which made it that much more amazing. Luckily, it didn't rain. The weather was actually perfect!! I felt exhilarated by the crowd but had a hard time trying to maneuver through people which really slowed me down in the beginning. Going up the first half of the bridge wasn't as bad as I thought, but going down felt pretty good. Once we got off the bridge, it was a lot better with the crowds lining the streets. As soon as I turned down King Street everyone was cheering-it made it easier to pick up the pace and finish. Afterwards we headed to lunch where I chowed down on crab cakes and mac and cheese. Anything would have been good at this point!! It was a great day, I felt great afterwards and look forward to doing another one soon...
