Women Who Run With the Elvis Impersonators
Today, I ran the Los Angeles Marathon. Now, I hurt everywhere. It took me 4 hours, 44 minutes, and 52 seconds. Also much to my surprise, I finished with the top 5000 runners (out of about 25,000), and was the 1100th woman to cross the finish line.
Mad props to Brady, coach extraordinaire, who got up early every weekend for the past 2 months to drive me to the beach for my long runs, and who always had a taco waiting for me at the end. And sometimes flowers.
These guys ran, too. And it was really hot outside, so my heart went out to them. I saw one of them around mile 15, and he had sweat clean through his jumpsuit.
