Hey bloggy friends! I am off for a full day of shopping with my Mom and Sister in Park City but before I go I couldn’t leave you all hanging.
This morning I raced the Timpanogoes Half Marathon. I will be back with a full recap tonight but here is the short version.
Basically anything that could have went wrong for a race did.
1. (This is definitely TMI, but if you’ve been following my blog for awhile your used to that right?) I didn’t have my normal morning before a race poop. hmmm Oh well I can deal with it. If I have to stop I’ll stop.
2. 10 minutes before the race start I went to turn on my garmin and it will not turn on. hmmm awesome, oh well I guess I’ll run with a pace group.
3. Right before race start I check to make sure I have my chomps ready. hmmm oh shit, I left them in my drop bag that I already threw into the trucks.
My thoughts at this point: If I had a freaking cellphone I would call the meat wagon to haul me off before the race even starts.
Well I didn’t have a cellphone and what can you do right?
So I just ran. And I ran. And I ran. I had no idea what my pace was or what the time was but I just freaking ran.
I ate a 2x caffeine GU someone gave me at mile 6, ate an otter pop at mile 10, and drank a 5 hour energy shot at mile 9.5. What the heck I wasn’t going to PR anyway so might as well try something new and have fun right?
I somehow crossed the finish line at 1:30:15, with a 6:52 average pace and a 3 minute PR! 14/600ish females.
Lesson learned: Running NAKED is okay.
Be Back later with a full (without splits of course) recap. Happy Saturday everyone.
