Whiskey Row 1/2

On Saturday, I ran the Whiskey Row 1/2 marathon in Prescott.

It was a grueling race!

For the first 6 1/2 miles, we climbed about 1000 ft., winding up a mountain. Several times throughout the race I heard runners second guessing their decision to run this one. I have to admit, I was right there with them!

The Whiskey Row marathon is described as "one of toughest in the United States" and that's no exaggeration. It was a beast!!

The Whiskey was a great training race for my marathon in 4 weeks, but I'm glad it's over. I finished with a time of 2:02 and considering the difficulty,

I'm happy with that!

I had a few friends that went and did that one too! They said the same exact thing, that it was difficult to say the least! I am proud of you! Way to go!

You are something else Sara! And your such a BABE running it, also with that perfect body of yours. I'm sure Lance was proud to say, that's my lady.. And you also have a heart of gold, and determination like nothing else.......
