The Finish Line
That last bit was a little brutal, but I gave it everything I had. We closed with 1004 registered attendees.
I finished up thinking about what went well, what could have been done differently, and pretty quickly got excited for next year's conference. When you finish a race or conference already excited for the next one, you know you are doing something you really enjoy. It helps to have a great "Coach" a.k.a. our center Director.
I posted that top photo on Facebook and people were genuinely shocked that I own, and would wear, a skirt. Granted, I am the person in the office who sets the bar very low in terms of professional apparel, but I know how to step up my game as needed. Good thing since I sat with the Provost and Vice President for Undergraduate Education at the closing lunch.
One complaint I do have about this race finish is there was no t-shirt and no finisher's medal, only a name badge. And no massage tent. Maybe next year.
Back to the normal triathlon/running posts after this one.....got a 17 mile run on the schedule for this wintery weekend and am very much looking forward to it!!
