And We’re Off!!

My race this morning couldn’t have gone much better. 17:48 official time and first woman overall! While that’s still a minute off from my PR it’s 30 seconds faster than any 5k I’ve run since college. Things are moving in the right direction!

20140621-135004-49804291.jpgLike I said on Wednesday I’m trying to get comfortable being uncomfortable. Today I realized that this is even harder to do in a race than it is in workouts – mostly because you don’t get any breaks! My mental game could have been stronger today but instead of being bummed out about that I’m trying to look at it as a positive. I know that if my mind was stronger today I could have run faster and that is EXCITING for the races I have coming in the future!

I can’t wait to share more about today’s race but that will have to wait until later this week because all my photos are still stuck on MY NEW CAMERA!


Well we’re sitting at the terminal at the airport – watching the World Cup and our flight is about to board so I gotta run! Family vacay here we come!!!!

Next time I check in will be from Wyoming!!! Have a great Saturday!

Who else raced this morning??
Tell me something positive about your day so far!
What are your summer vacation plans? I want to hear all about them!!

  1. I also raced this morning! Debuted at the half marathon distance and ran a very strong race despite stomach issues and rain delays which led to hot and humid conditions. Strong race for you this morning- you are so speedy!

  2. Congrats on a great race! Hope you have a blast on your vacation. We are going to visit my brother in Durham, NC this week and I cannot wait. We are for sure making a vacation out of it.
