We met in Rhode Island the night before and stocked up on carbs for race day. An early morning start, with a few bumps in the road- a long wait in Dunkin Donuts drive through, a spilled hot tea in the car, almost losing my ID to check in, and then almost losing my bib number after I finally checked in- but we finally made it to the starting line!
Elizabeth and I ran most of the race together, we ended up splitting up around mile 10. Elizabeth was definitely pushing me along the first 6 miles- I was really worried I wouldn't be able to keep up the pace. Once I had a GU at mile 9 I was got my second wind and took off. I felt great the last 3 miles, which was great because that's when I felt HORRIBLE the year before! It felt great to kick last years ass!
I ended up coming in at 1:48- my new PR! The race was so fun! Great bands along the route, high energy the whole race, a great way to see the beautiful city of Providence and so fun to run with Elizabeth!
After the race we stayed around for our free beer and Karmin concert- definitely the best part of the day! They were GREAT in concert!!!!
