Well, I did it. I ran/walked the Run Hit Wonder yesterday. It actually went much better than I was expecting. The weather was great, sunny and not too hot. My sister-in-law and three kids came down to cheer me and my husband on. I managed to make 17 minute miles. While it’s definitely not ideal, I didn’t come in last which was my greatest fear.
Having the bands on the route was a lot of fun. The Donnas were great! The bands did create quite a bottleneck because people would stop running just to hang out and watch. That was great for me because it let me pass people. I was too slow to see Chingy. He had finished playing before I got to his 3 mile marker.
The after concert with Joan Jett was a lot of fun. I’ve loved her ever since the movie ‘Light of Day’. My 2 year old niece had the best time. She rocked out to each song. She is definitely the punk rocker of the family. All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a better first race to be in. I even got a metal for finishing. Looks like we will do it again next year.
