3:18ish at Eugene, unofficial PR

Something went wrong with my timing chip. Not seeing my time listed is testing my patience, but for now I have an unofficial PR! 3:18:07?

Eugene Marathon 2012 was my 3rd marathon - There's something new to learn from each one.

We had amazing race weather and some things went very right; other things need some work :) .

I felt amazingly covered in prayer, love, and support from friends for this race. 

Humbled by the distance again, but I am satisfied I gave all I had yesterday. God got me to the finish line.

Full race report and post race photos coming soon!

  1. Great job! I can't wait to read the whole report. When I got back into town yesterday I got online to check you out, but there was nothing but your start time. At first I was worried that you somehow got hurt within the first 3 miles but then saw a finish picture of you on Facebook so figured it must've been your chip. Congrats on the PR!!

    1. Thanks Laurie! I would be curious to see what the start time was. Another friend told me that it was listed as well, but then was taken off. I'm not sure if my Btag was broken before the race, or broke in process. It says not to bend it, but i found this after the race and i wore it on my skirt- so maybe it got bent.

  12. So frustrating about the chip thing but I am so glad you did not know about it during the race! I bet you went sub 3:18 officially:) You did an awesome job Raina. You are just starting to run marathons really - this was your 3rd? and I am convinced that next time you will see ANOTHER 10min PR. So proud of you for fighting it out and can't wait to hear the details. Love the pics!!!!
