Well ladies and gents, Montastic is back to feeling normal after totally whooping some butt at the Bolder Boulder 10k on Memorial Day. My goal was to beat an hour. Last year I ran it in 1:05:40 ..which is roughly a 10.5 min/mile pace. Well not only did I meet my goal, I blew it out of the water! I'm so proud of myself. My finishing time was 55:50...at exactly 9 min/mile pace. My mile breakdown:
Anyway, I feel great. I pushed myself really damn hard. and, once again, I'm completely impressed with what the human body can achieve. If you had told Fattastic of 2 years ago that Montastic would do this, she would have probably doubted you.
My mom kicked some butt too by running the whole thing at altitude! Good for her! Sea level is for sissies, as they say.

After finishing and feeling rather dandy! So excited that I made a stranger take my picture since I had no one to share my personal victory with.
The dashing duo - finished running and sweaty as all heck.
