Well, it is June 9th…yet I feel like it has been forever.
This is a picture from Tuesday!!!! We did the Chase Corporate Challenge! Andrew came in fifth this year and I am so proud!!! He has won three times and I think he is an amazing runner! He is coming back from injury…I think fifth place is pretty awesome out of more than 7,000 runners!!!!!
I was pretty disappointed in my time! Last year I finished in under 26 minutes. I thought I had it in me to repeat a similar time, but my legs were just too tired. I think it is a good time to take a break from racing. I have had a couple of successful half marathons lately…so I am happy with this decision.
My last half was number 72! I did the Buffalo Half Marathon on May 29th! It was super fast, but also super hot! I recommend this as a pr race but only if you do well with the heat. My time was 1:49:50. I was pleasantly surprised because I wasn’t planning on trying to go super fast…well this isn’t super fast but for me these days I will take it!
Andrew and Lilly came with me and we went to Niagara Falls :)!!!!
We had a blast at the falls but it was such a hot time!!!!! I also got to spend some time with my friend, Jen Brady! She set up a cowbell corner and we took a selfie!
My finish was less than glamorous, but I was glad to be done and enjoy the day by Jen’s pool!!!!!
I also ran in the Green Bay Half Marathon for number 71! My finish time was 1:49:48!!!!! Super happy with my time! This was in Wisconsin…and I have never been there. This course was super fast but I did fall on my face !!!!! I am graceful! Andrew ran too and we had a great time!!!! We even went in a hot air balloon!
I did a couple or races in April…I did the Springtime 10k with my friend Robyn…we had a blast and she was fun to run with!!!!
I also ran the Maine Race the Runways Half…I went to see my parents. This was not a good race for me but I love the event. I was third in the one mile event with a time of 6:59 and I bombed out on the half…I was a 2:04….Andrew won the mile and the half marathon!!!!! He won three trophies and set a record for the Airport Challenge…. SOOOOO stinkin proud of him!
Before this race, I also ran the Earth Day Half Marathon for number 69…I ran with Krista and it became more of a walk run jog.
I ran the Syracuse Half Marathon in 1:57…It was super cold and I ran in a blizzard. It hailed and was incredibly crappy out!!! That was my 68th half…I am up to 72 now and happy with training. I joined the y runners again to train for a marathon….
