. My joints were killing me and the race was in complete downpour which was distracting and slippery. All in all race weekend was a success and Colette and I have a medals to prove it! Afetr the race we went back to the hotel for showers and to wait for the ferry. We took the ferry from nova scotia to pei. We arrived in pei and spent almost 2 hours going to chapters, looking for a cake (i really wanted one) and looking for the hotel. Heidi and I hit the pool while we waited for our take out of pizza and fries. We ate our food while we watched an action movie. Heidi is now asleep, colette is journaling, dad is throwing socks in my face and im dieing...actually just amazingly sore. Tomorrow is going to be a chillax day, colette and heidi are gunna explore pei, im gunna stay back and rest and dad is still unknown!
Well today was a CRAZY day it began at about 7:20ishh when we were running around our hotel run trying to prepare for our races. We were changing, clipping hair, pinning on our race bibs, attaching the timers to our shoes and attempting to eat. Colette ate a banana and drank a coffee and I shoved a abnana and half a peice of bread....big mistake. I'll try to be as discriptive as possible.... we arrived 10 minutes before the race began and i wen to hit the porta poti while colette lined up because her race starts about 6 minutes beofre mine. If you'll notice from my breakfast choice i forgot the most important thing to do.....hydrate, drink water!!! Well i payed for that the first 10 km loop i felt very nauseas and i couldnt shake it. About 45 minutes into the race i stoppped to throw up! I felt better after and was able to get into a zone dispite my aching joints. Colette finished her first 5k in a great 35 minutes and change and felt absolutely great and accomplished. I finished my half marathon in about 2 hours 24 minutes and felt not too great
