Yesterday, I did my July race, the Jim Kane Sugar Bowl 5K in Southie – put on by the L Street running club. The out and back course along the water was PERFECT in May.
However, come July 18th, at 7PM during a HEATWAVE. Let’s just say it was hot.
But I guess it wasn’t that bad – I had a time of 29:18… and I wasn’t even going for time! I just wanted to not die. I was super thankful that they had ice clothes, two water stops and this awesome guy spraying us with a garden hose.
So yeah – July is complete in my book. Looking for a smaller August race, since the next month is going to be CRAZY. So, if anyone knows of a race in the Boston area in August, let me know!
Now? Finishing up the work week and then off to my friends bachelorette party for the weekend!
Just wanted to give you a heads up on a new development here on The Road To A Healthy Life – there is now a discount page!
I consider myself a savvy shopper, and I can’t resist a good deal on a race registration or a new pair of compression pants. So I’ve started to compile all the discounts that I know/get/come across on a single page for you guys!
Enjoy and feel free to share love.
It seems like I’ve been bit by the running bug… hard. Mainly, I like going to an event and running. I like the feeling of running with a group of people and trying to beat my best. I’ve always been competitive, and even though I’m not a fast runner, my competitive side pushing me just that extra bit.
Today, I’ve been planning out my next year of races (hopefully I will have enough money/time/endurance/everything else I need) that I want to do.
And here we go:
Nov 2012: Spartan Race Sprint Fenway Park(3+ miles)
Dec 2012: Jingle Bell Run Somerville (5K)
Jan 2013: OPEN I NEED A RACE HERE
Feb 2013: Super Sunday 5 (5 Miler)
March 2013: Somerville St. Patrick’s Run (5K)
April 2013: Marathon Sports City Run (5 Miler), B.A.A. 5K
May 2013: Run to Remember (½ MARATHON)
June 2013: B.A.A. 10K
So far that’s all I’ve got, but that covers me for a little more than the next 6 months. Yes. I want to run a half marathon. Yes. I’m going to do it. I just have to keep telling myself that.
Someone tell me I’m not crazy?
