It was a PR...

But not the PR I wanted. I did not beat P. Diddy's marathon time, but I am sure that I beat Oprah's marathon time. With the amount of physical pain that I was in at the end, I will take it. NO STOMACH PROBLEMS THIS TIME!!! Yahoo!

Finish time 4:30:04

Half Marathon time 2:01:40 (see how I had to slow down due to the leg and low back pain?)

Ok, I will give a more detailed race report soon. I just drove back in town this morning and got Buddy to school and I have to go teach a Step aerobics class at the gym and then head off for a stretch session. Before you call me a nut for teaching a step class, I will be hobbling at first, but it will really loosen things up after sitting in the car for 3 hours this morning and get the muscles warmed up for the stretch session.

More pics and details later gators,

It was a PR Liz! Congratulations!! A step class I feel like such a wuss for not teaching Sunday after 10, and dropping classes like a bad habit. You are OUTSTANDING!

Rainmaker said...

Congrats! Lookin' forward to the full story.

The Lazy Triathlete said...

Great job!!! I will not hold it against you that you did not beat Diddy. I can't wait to see the pics and read the entire report.

TNTcoach Ken said...

Look at that fluid stride! Yes, you are crazy but you knew that. Great job.

KCWoodhead said...

Congrats on the PR! Now we are both chasing Diddy!! I thought I was so close last time as well, but came up 14 minutes short.
One of these days, Diddy is going DOWN!

Spokane Al said...

Congratulations! You look strong coming across that finish line.

I will be looking forward to the race report.

Speed Racer said...

So you didn't beat P Diddy, but you made a sexier picture. Look at that: feet off the ground, hips under you, and delts that go *POP!*.

Congratulations on the PR, and not ralphing all over your shoes or soiling your shorts. I'd call the day a success.

Benson said...

Good job.
Way to tuff it out and stay strong to the finish. I hope you're healing up. That pan kucken thingy sounds so yummy. Now lets see some pics please.

BTW, the bear prints were in mud that had dried.

Nice job Liz!! CONGRATS!!!!

Can't wait for more photos!!

And I commented below your comment on my blog - you're TOTALLY right! It's amazing how much you learn about your form once you're able to see yourself f-ing it up so badly! Thanks for the pointers!!

Steve Stenzel said...

p.s. Have I told you that the woman in your header that's giving you the stink eye freaks me out?

Well, she does.

Jeff said...

Way to go, Liz. Congrats on the run and on another TnT event.

Bill D said...

The bad news is Oprah ran a 4:29:20 in 1994 at Marine Corp.

The good news - you'll soon crush that time. Congrats on the PR.

We're planning a Jan 31st 5K, maybe a good day for a TNT reunion run.

JohnnyTri said...

Super congrats on a great run, despite some minor quirks..!!
Ur awesome in my book..

but as bill d (busted the bubble)
he's right on Oprah and well as for P. Diddy.. he cranked out a 4:14:54 in 2003.
