Super crappy race for me, felt like death after 7. More details later, need a break from racing.

I probably should have listened to my body and mind and not done this race  but a lot of times my heart and soul take over. I am pretty burnt out from my summer of many marathons but haven't done this race in a long time and my mom and Ericka were going down so I decided to do it. I thought maybe if I had a great day I could squeeze out one more PR. But nope this race was not going to go my way, which is okay not all of them do and I have had so many good races this year. My only complaint would be my pain in my SI joints that I wish would go away. I took 2 extra strength Tylonal to see if that would help. Nope it didn't.

Got to the buss earlier than I like and road up with Shaun and my mom (ericka did the 5k due to IT problems). It was down right cold up at the start. Waited around for Rachelle and others to show up and soon as I saw her and Christi we went and warmed up. We went a mile and came back, took off my warm ups and barley had time to line up. Me and Christi got caught pretty far back, the race started right on time. We had to weave our way through the crowds but I wasn't worried. The first 7 miles I felt good and was on a great pace feeling like this was going to be a good race for me. At mile 7 all the sudden I felt sick and light headed ( I haven't had this problem this year so I was mad), I slowed quite a bit but thought it was going to pass  and I would recover. It never passed and only got worse at 10 I thought about dropping out but knew I would still have to walk to the end so I ran on to the finish. Being sick and my back hurting was very discouraging when I finished and I was not happy.  But I know this happens to all of us and every race can't go as we would like, so I will be happy with a 1:26 because last year I couldn't even break 1:30 and this course had a difficult end. Not as easy as the course map shows. So all in all I loved this race, the course is beautiful and fun. The race was put on very well, lots of port o potties, busses and the finish line was great.   The course measured long 13.2 for me. Cooled down with Rachelle and Christi another mile.

6:20, 6:26, 6:21, 6:02, 5:59, 5:58, 6:15, 7:10 ( were I felt sick all the sudden), 6:37, 6:53, 7:13, 7:18, 7:08, .2 in 1:09. Trying to look good running around the track and catch to guys which are in front of me which I do and then one out sprints me.
