Now on to my awesome wife Melissa. She ran the Women's Half last weekend and was very disappointed with her time. This week was the time for redemption, to put that race behind her and move on. Boy did she ever. She looked strong at the end and pushed hard. I was almost in tears when I saw her coming to the finish line right behind the 2:20 pace group. She killed her PR by 8 minutes finishing in 2:21:45!! 10:48 pace!! Amazing. I am so proud of her!! See honey, you are fast!! You are awesome. I love you!!
I also got a special treat after the race. I finally got to meet the awesome Amanda TooTall Fritz. Check out her blog. She has an awesome running blog and is a good friend of Melissa's.
