  1. Wow! Fast last two miles. Good job. That first mile sounds insane.

  2. Wow, top 25% of your age group and top 1/3 of the entire race! Great job. Although I am curious about the "miniature meltdown" at the end.

  3. Yay!! Excellent job! Looking forward to reading the full recap...meltdown included :)

  4. That's a great time Alicia! Congrats.

  5. Congrats on a great race! That's an awesome time especially considering the "climb"! Running and climbing don't mix in my book.

  6. WOOOOHOOOOO Alicia! You guys did awesome. I have a hard time breaking an 8 minute mile - that's incredible! Can't wait to read the full recap.

  7. NOT FUN on that 1,000-foot climb. Yikes! Pretty good time considering the course!

  8. Good job, baby. I am real proud of you and Will.
