But I did it! Even better, I beat my goal by a minute! Here's the proof: an auto update posted to my Facebook profile:
I had to get up at 5:00am to make it to the race on time, so after the race, I ate lots of food (obv), then took a several hour nap. I was so tired & it felt really good.
Then we headed over to my mom's house for a BBQ and Joe's birthday pie. It was raspberry cream pie. And it was perfection. My mom makes the best pies.
Happy 25th Birthday, Joe!
