New England Patriots) and ended on the 50 yard line of the Patriots field! The photo is of me, very hot and very tired, on the field at the finish line. I was aiming to finish in under an hour but ended up finishing in 1:06 - not bad for my very first 10k.
While the race itself was pretty uneventful coming into the staduim was a different story. We ran through the same tunnel and blow-up helmet that the players run through to get on the field during a game - a very cool experience. While temps reached into the low 90's on race day, the entire family was able to complete the race and both of my parents had their names announced as they came in the stadium ("Here's David coming in...he's on the 30 yard line, the 40, he's across the finish line!") and both were featured on the big screen above the end zone. I had so much fun that I'm thinking of doing it all over again next year!
