I was in corral 2 while Krissy was in corral 1 and luckily they weren't really checking, so I was able to sneak into corral 1. Note that all corrals for J&A races are based on self-reported estimated finish time, so I just need to learn to do some better estimating!

A few minutes after getting to the starting line, we were off and running. We settled into a good pace for the first few miles and enjoyed chatting. Note that I sort of forgot about my 9:1 run:walk plan and realized a little after mile 1 that I'd missed my walk break. In that moment, I threw caution to the wind and decided to see if I could run this beast. There were some great outfits and signs with corny jokes along the course that were great entertainment.
