The last 48 hours have been crazy. Thank you for the positive comments. Yesterday was a crap shoot in terms of weather, but I went out there and ran a short 2 miles, but they were fast. I didn’t feel great after it and I was a little deflated.
What made me feel better was going to lunch with my hubby at this new crepe place. Since it is Lent we couldn’t eat meat on Friday so I had a spinach, goat cheese and strawberry crepe and my husband had an egg with veggies. They were so yummy. Now did you think I would leave without having a dessert creme? Michael and I shared a S’mores crepe, which was delicious. Sorry I didn’t take pictures. Totally forgot.
Now today is Saturday. I know you are all dying to know how my run was and it was awesome!
Our pace was 9.11 which is awesome because if I keep that pace I am close to a Sub 2, which would be awesome, but I don’t want to burn out either. Prior to the race I at a Justin’s PB packet. At mile 3 I ate a Gu, a caffeinated Salted Caramel and it was delicious. At mile 6 I ate a peanut butter Gu and I think day of race I will take one more at mile 9. I think they really did the trick. I felt great. I felt so much better this week then last week. I was able to really keep up with “fast group” and actually by mile 6 myself and another teammate took off. We pushed passed mile 10 and and sprinted the last bit. It was such a great run and an awesome motivation.
I know I keep saying this, but I have made such wonderful friends and I see a full marathon in my future. I love this experience, this trip, this race. This is just the beginning. I don’t care if you are a professional runner or a first time runner experiencing a team run, a fundraising run should be on your bucket list. I can’t wait to be a mentor next season.
What is on your bucket list?
How was your long run?
Have you done a fundraiser run? If so what charity?
