There’s only one word that can be used to describe this past week: amazing! I book ended the week with PRs – on Monday at the Ringing in Hope 10k and then on Saturday at the ZOOMA Annapolis Half Marathon. Going into the week, Monday’s PR was much more expected than Saturday’s PR. Given how hilly the Annapolis course is, and how humid it was on Saturday morning, my PR at ZOOMA was completed unexpected, which made crossing the finish line that much more exciting.
Like planned, I took the week easy. After Monday’s 10k, I only ran one other time, and walked another day. It seems like nothing could stop me from getting both PRs, even a sore toe from my lost toenail.
I can’t wait to recap both races, especially Saturday’s race. Between the meetups with other ambassadors the race itself, and the post race celebration with Preston and little man, I have so much to share. In the meantime, I’ll be taking it easy on the running front for the next week or two. I intended to enjoy my after school and weekend time by going for plenty of walks with little man and hopefully using the elliptical a bit more at the gym. I’m definitely looking forward to the short break from training before I start training for Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach at the beginning of September.
