McKay Hollow Madness 25K 2012 Quick Update

Official times have not yet been posted, but I finished 1st overall female!  I finished in about 2:30:33.  Here I am with the 2nd and 3rd place finishers (left to right).  Fellow Fleet Feet team member, Lynn Curry, is the 3rd place finisher.  My daughter, who is behind us and to the left in this picture, was able to see me finish.  She was cheering so loudly that I could easily distinguish her voice from the crowd.  I was so happy to hear her!  When I finished, she shouted, "You won again?!?!"  It was pretty neat to be able to say, "Yes, I did!"  Two first place finishes a week apart is something new and special, and probably once in a lifetime!  I will post a recap later.
