whatup providence?

So today I ran the Willow Tree 1/2 marathon in Providence. My friend Liz and I made our way out there yesterday afternoon so that we could pick up our race packets and walk around the expo. I walked in and saw a man who looked really familiar and then I realized that it was Jay Kruger from The Biggest Loser Couples (Season 5). He and his brother were there (although I only saw one) and were apparently running the 1/2 as well. As everyone knows, I'm a huge, HUGE Biggest Loser fan. But, he and his brother were pretty douchey on the show so I didn't try to get a picture or anything.

The brothers, in case any of you care, which you probably dont.

Anyway, today was race day and the forecast had predicted rain all day. Thankfully that didn't happen and we totally lucked out. Overcast, high 50's with just a hint of a breeze. Pretty much my ideal running conditions! I won't bore you with the details of the hilly and narrow race, but I finished! I'm done! 12 weeks of training paid off! My feet sort of kill but other than that I'm feeling good. I'm hoping that tomorrow doesn't look like this for me and Liz:

It's only a matter of time before I sign up for another long race. Can't refrain from torturing myself for too long, right?
