This year's Little Rock Marathon held its ninth race and boasted the biggest medal EVER. According to people in our elevator at the Hampton Inn, it's the biggest medal and got some kind of award at Runner's magazine. For us Halfers and our new, fresh and young (except for me) first timer Relay team members, our medals are quite, quite smaller but still awesome. And I should report Chloe and Whit's medals were fabulous too.
Our Birdeye Bombshells' relay team boasted a 4:40 time and 28/62 in the female division. Kara's 6.2 in 1:03, my 6.9 in 1:12 (I totally struggled), Ashley King dominated the third leg 7.8 in 1:16 and Sarah Jane Martin 5.3 in 1:04. What great fun today was!!
Chloe and Whit had a great time Saturday at the Kids run...Chloe was such a big sister to Whit. They had a wonderful time riding in the car over to Little Rock Saturday. After the run, we had a great lunch at the Flying Fish (details soon on the culinary blog) and those two went to town in the Hampton Inn, jumping on beds and hiding under the desk, they crack me up. We're so blessed the two are so close.
For the half marathoners, Jackie did 13.1 in 1:56, Martin finished before him, Stan and Colley with him. They all had a good run too and loved rehashing today's race at Dugan's Pub, that we totally loved and I hope to review soon.
It's off to take some Advil before bed, we'll all be aching tomorrow. Looking forward to Saturday's bike ride at Kara's. Bob and Polly were so gracious this weekend to watch Chloe Saturday night for dinner and this morning during the race. They're fired up for an early morning ride Saturday. I'll be there if I can trade Saturdays. Going to stretch the hamstrings...

Summary HALF MARATHON
*I love our relay team name....I'd say we were pretty close to gettin on this list, what do ya'll say? :)
|This was taken at the corner of 3rd and River Market, I believe with|
combined entries of full, half, relay etc, there were over 6,000 in the race.
All the categories sold out way before online entries closed. WOW!
|I had to stop and adjust my sock (rubbing a blister) and noticed|
I was right in front of the governor's mansion. Gov. Beebe was
outside waving as he normally does, I think that's so cool!
