I'm still grateful for every day this month, even the ones I didn't blog about until now. Here goes:
November 13th through November 21st, 2013, I'm thankful I survived each and every one of those days, through work, relationships with friends, student loans (sweet jesus!), and home repairs. Cheers!
Now, onto business. I'm behind on my virtual races thanks to crappy circumstances and today, crappier weather. I will get caught up.
I ran the Mustache Dash 5k last Saturday, the 16th - the day before my
|Lisa & I after Mustache Dash|
Now, I really liked this race (don't I like them all?) and love the finisher's medal - almost as much as I love the Boots & Daisy Dukes finisher medal. Hell, who am I kidding? I love bling. Based on the results of this race, there were over 1,000 participants. Also according to results, I placed 22nd out of 109 in my age group. For my gender: 128th out of 718. And overall: 279th of 1,032. I'll take it.
Next on the radar? Well, getting caught up on the virtual races, of course. As far as actual races? A 10-miler. This Sunday. I once ran 11 miles, about 500 years ago. I'm incredibly nervous. Like, it's only Thursday and my stomach is nervous-queasy, kind of nervous.
I get to run it with Jen (who's already run a half marathon.) and Lisa (with her sub-10 miles.) both! So it's going to be just fine. And we'll all finish.
And regardless of how long it takes me, it'll be my first 10 mile PR!
