***ACK! It’s been a week and I missed my blogging. To my credit, I was in Vegas Friday through Tuesday and follow that with two 10 hour days of work and you have one tired girl!
Here are my Three Things Thursday to get me back on track:
1. I ran a race on Sunday!! Not just any race, I ran the Vegas Rock ‘n Roll 1/2 Marathon!! A race re-cap will be forthcoming (I promise)! For now, here’s a sneak-a-peek:
2. YES! This was a PR (Personal Record) for me!! WOOT! My previous best was a 1:44:37 in 2008 at the Holualoa Tucson 1/2 Marathon.
ASIDE from the PR, my biggest achievement was coaching two athletes to their very first 1/2 marathon!! One was from Virginia (who I had never met until Saturday) AND the other was a co-worker of the hubs that had no real plan until I sent him one. BOTH of these athletes did fantastic during their training and nailed the 1/2 marathon on Sunday despite the EPIC headwinds. I’m so excited for their next races and am grateful to have been a part of their very first 1/2 marathon experience. Thank you Rebecca and Jeff!
3. A special shout out to Brooks Running for selecting me the last 4 years to be a part of the Inspire Daily team. I wore their race kit proudly Sunday!
