…”Run to inspire…” My motto of the day…I am sure someone else thought of this first.
Today was a great day and I had fun meeting up with Cynthia and Andrea from Rhode Island. We met at the Ocean’s Run Half Marathon in March and we all decided to share a room. This is such a great idea and a good way to save money for MORE RACES!!!!!
I also met Judy, who is from Massachusetts. She was really nice. I hope I run into her again too….
I am proud to confess I did not lose any clothes today and this is about all I ran in today. It got really warm for me…story of my life. When I started the mile run I turned into an oven because the temperature was 41, even though it was raining and snowing.
My time says 6:44 but the course was 1.1 miles…a little long and I finished the first mile in 6:15…I was edged out of first by a young girl…my friends said she cut the corners…oh well…I beat out another little girl by half a second. I like my trophy, though first place was an airplane trophy…I am happy to place 🙂 this was not a pr for me…soon I hope!
I like the shirt and I think number 39 was my lucky number today…I will probably get 666 tomorrow ha ha ha!
Here is my race data for the half marathon. It was ridiculously flat, but I think the one mile sprint took the life out of me and the seven hour drive. I did fine and I can see I went out way too fast…shocker!!!!!!
I also had trouble with the wind around the six mile mark. It was on the runway and I felt like I was running against a fan. When I got out of the wind, I felt like the flash! It got really hot.
I made a mistake today too. I drank the Gatorade. I hate Gatorade. The water stops were great though, since I am trying to not run with the weight of the water belt. Tomorrow’s race only has four stops so I am a little worried.
I am happy today to finish in under 1:50 but I am still not at my old time. My time today was 1:49:32…I feel like a sloth…I am hoping to break 1:50 again tomorrow, though I am so tired. My last two times on this course are 1:39 and 1:46…we will see…
I like the medal…it is a nice airplane and there is a roadstrip for the ribbon. I think I am going to be one of those silly people to decorate my Christmas Tree with all these medals…not this coming year but the year after….
This was a great race and it was well run! Definitely on the bucket list and the price was great..I like the shirts…
