Thursday night was the TC 1 Mile. I kinda wanted to run it, but just coming off an injury with another race scheduled for today (Saturday), I figured it wasn't a good idea. However, it was a GREAT idea for my lovely Pharmie who was nearly 36 weeks pregnant!
Being she was going to take it super easy in the "Friends and Family" wave, I figured I might be able to run with her (or at least down the sidewalk NEAR her). Here are some photos from her race:
Us in the starting chute.
High-fiving the Target mascot.
Over half-way there!
Under a 1/4 mile left, still all smiles!
Entering the finisher's chute.
Finishing with a smile!!
Pharmie didn't really have a time goal. I mean, she's 36 weeks pregnant, so she wasn't going to "work through the pain" if she started to get a little out of breath. She took it easy the whole way and hoped to finish sub-13. Well, she comfortably did better than that!
When the female race rounded the final corner with 2-3 blocks left, Sara Hall had just taken the lead and was going to win!!!
Sara Hall - all smiles and abs!
But when the men rounded that final corner, Ryan was way back there. David Torrence, the winner from the last 2 years, had JUST taken the lead:
- Ryan Hall's announcement that he's racing the TC 1 Mile
- Notes and photos from the pre-race press luncheon
- Video from the ENTIRE Female Championship race (watch Sara Hall make her move and FLY past Amy Mortimer!)
- All of my photos from the race (including a video Pharmie took of Torrence running past - check out his speed!)
Pharmie and I (and baby) had a SUPER FUN night at the TC 1 Mile! On the way home, we stopped for pizza. Pharmie gave me QUITE the guilty look as I pulled into the driveway and she realized that she'd already ate most of her slice:
Gotta keep baby fed!! :)
