This week was another fabulous week of training! I’ve been working hard, and I’ve really seeing my hard work pay off lately! If you follow me on Social Media then it should be of no surprise that the highlight of this week’s training was the Leesburg 20k, which I ran yesterday. I cannot wait to relive this fabulous race when I write my recap this week.
The Leesburg 20k was just the icing on the cake to a very productive week of training.

Yesterday’s race was my last long run of this training cycle, which means I’ve finally arrived at taper town! I’ve been working hard and now its time to let me body rest a bit so that I can put all of my hard work, focus, and determination to good use and give Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach 100% in two weeks. With all of the high mileage that I’ve logged in recent weeks, its going to be difficult to scale back on the running, but I know that its for the best.
If being only two weeks out from my third half marathon wasn’t exciting enough, I saw this on Timehop yesterday:
If this isn’t representative of the running progress that I’ve made then I don’t know what is! Here’s to the next two weeks as I taper and finish getting ready for half marathon #3!
