Running any race at the Critz Tybee Run Fest is so much fun! Fleet Feet Savannah always puts on a great event so this is my third time participating in it. Because of the time of the year the weather is usually crappy during the race, but this didn’t keep us from having a great time.
When I asked people who completed this race last year about it, everybody kept saying: “it was very foggy!” So, I woke up on race day and there it was… the FOG! The temperature was nice, but when I got to Fort Pulaski I felt I was freezing (and of course I was wearing short shorts and a lil tank top while everyone else was wearing long sleeves, but it was ok)
Hi everyone! I’m happy to announce that I’m not a Thanksgiving virgin anymore 🙂
Yesterday we had the most wonderful day. Bobby and I woke up at 6:45 am, had our lime water and got ready to go to the Turkey Trot to run 4 miles in a 30 degree weather (-1F). It was a beautiful winter morning with not even one cloud in the sky… perfect for Bobby’s first race!
As I mentioned on a previous post my running goal for the end of 2013 was to PR in a half marathon during the Fall. I thought it was a good goal because, since I was getting married, moving to a different state, traveling with my husband and starting to study towards my health coach certification, training for a half marathon was going to require less time than training for a bigger race.
During the past 6 months I‘ve been traveling during the weekends, but this past one was an exception. When I found out I was staying in Chicago I wanted to enjoy the city as much as I could! So what was the first thing I did? Look up for races!
Last week was great! Tons of things going on at work, a lot of GOOD cooking and a cold but very friendly 3.5 mile race.
After the Boston Marathon I haven’t been running as much. That usually happens to me after a big race: I feel I need a break and start switching up my workouts (this time I started lifting weights more than usual). The tragic events that occurred on 04/15/13 have probably played a big role into my “lack” of running.
