At a later time (probably tomorrow) there will be a post filled with race day details like what I wore, what and when I ate, etc; mostly so I can track it for myself going forward. But here's what has me all squeeful.
Last year I finished this race in 2:42:15.
This year I finished in 2:23:10!!!!! (And there really need to be capslocks for numbers.) That's right - 18 minutes faster! I attribute this to my training being better, my day before being better planned, and having lost 10+ pounds but still, I was aiming to beat 2:30.
2:23:10. Today, I kind of rock.
