Ok, yes, it was cold, but honestly, I loved it. It was about 25 degrees. I met my goal time. I wanted to do it in around 1:10 minutes. My unofficial time from my Garmin was 1:10:31. My man was there to support me.
Also, I met up with one of my friends from work and her daughter.
Heart rate went up really high in the last 3 miles, but I felt great. I took about three short 30 second walk breaks to get it down. I felt awesome at the end so I turned it on a bit to finish strong. My heart went to 194!! Ok, my max has to be about 210, because even at 194, I still felt great and could talk.
A great experience. A check off on my bucket list.
