Weekly Recap

On Sunday, I completed my first Half Marathon.
My big goal was to finish before the 3 1/2 hour cut off. My second goal was to finish under 3 hours. (I look rather terrified at that start line!!) 
I started out WAY to fast for me!! I was ahead of the 2:40 pace group thru mile 3.  I set a 5K PR. NOT something you want to do in a half marathon!!!!  I did finish at 3:01.54! And I received a medal and a running jacket.


Monday I won a Nathans Hand Held in Suz and Allans virtual Run For Ali.  and it arrived in the mail on Tuesday. Super fast delivery!!

Saturday: Sweat Pink Virtual Run: Life as a Running Mom hosted a Mothers Day virtual run. I dont remember what distance I signed up to run.  I started out with a my running group. We were going to do 4 miles. After the first mile my stomach started hurting. During mile 2 I had dry heaves, I felt absolutely miserable. I told the rest of the crew to keep going, I was going to do some walking.   The leader stayed back with me, while the others ran on ahead.  After a couple minutes we started running again, and the nausea came back. Today was not a mind over body day!! I gave up the run and walked to the end. 3.48 miles in 51 minutes.
