When you really don’t want to race, but you kind of have to because you said you would pick someone up the day before, when there was no snow! Apparently helps if you close your eyes #snow#runninginsnow#snowsucks
Today may have seemed
like a typical gloomy Monday, but it's actually a special Monday because today marks the 1st day of official training for @ironmantri Mont Tremblant with a 60 minute run! I'm excited, and terrified, and mostly ready to get started. #whathaveigottenmyselfinto#ironman#ironmantraining
I usually get sick once or twice a year, but when I do it I really get sick. I’m so glad that this happened at the beginning of the season, hopefully that means it’s already out of the way! Here it is to starting the season strong and healthy! @newtonrunning #runinyourelement
Years ago before the “fad” diet.. I was introduced to the ketogenic diet by a friend going through radiation by the recommendation of her doctor to reduce inflammation... so too many friends later, I have another friend (fellow mom & runner #BAMR ) with a very important doctors appointment this week, so today I’m giving this cookbook as a gift hoping next week we are laughing and sharing recipes and talking about this as a “trendy diet” rather than a potentially mitigating health treatment... and of course fuzzy socks .. who doesn’t love a pair of those 💕
Just over a year ago, I decided to run my first @ironmantri 140.6. I signed up for Louisville and started running. I had no bike and no pool.
In March, I ran a 13.1 just to gut check my fitness. I ran a 1:39 and sputtered out of gas at the finish. I was still happy but I knew that I had a long road ahead.
On Saturday, I jumped into the F^3 half in Chicago with a borrowed bib (Thanks again, Alix!) I planned to use it as a training run, hanging out in Z2.
I held the pace for the first half of the race and felt breezy. The back half had a tailwind so I let my feet fly. I negative split the race, ending with a 6:18 for the last mile: 1:32:07
I’ve come a long ass way since that 13.1 last March, and I’m going to go a whole lot further in the next six months.
