A few weeks before the race, when we were both looking through the runners' packet, we came across the elevation map, and were slightly horrified by the rolling hills. That combined with the 10:15 am start time in the heat of summer made for two VERY nervous runners! Since we figured we would be running at a dead-slow pace, we thought we might as well look good, so thanks to some amazing online shopping, we bought matching sequined running skirts and headbands! Check out our pre-race photo... pretty awesome.

|And this is why I love racing in New England|
|Doesn't get better than that!|
|We did it!!|
|I love that the medals matched our skirts!|
Once we were clean and well-rested, we headed to the Hingham Shipyard for our victory dinner. After a beautiful walk along the harbor as the sun was setting, we settled down for dinner along the waterfront. I had a watermelon beer, which was pretty much phenomenal.

Our post-race celebration was amazing, and the perfect ending to such a special weekend. I can't wait to start planning our next race adventure together!
