Mercedes Half Marathon Results

Results are in! This race was so, so, so dang fun. Highlights: running with my bro in Super Stout costumes (thanks, Dollar Tree), recording reenactments of Adam Samberg's "On the Ground" sketch at every single water stop, talking and laughing with tons of runners along the way and trying to talk them into doing ridiculous stunts with us, taking pics with priests, and, even after all of our goofiness, still finishing in a decent time, just 3 minutes over my PR. No complaints for this free race!



Official results: 1:48:48, 34th place in age group, 148th lady, 567th overall

    1. Yes, my brother has all of the video, but I'm hoping he'll send it to me soon. I think we may have annoyed some innocent bystanders in the process, but we also made other people laugh.:)
