She Races NAKED

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.
