So how have I NOT been training for this race? Let me list the ways!
1. Not running more than 6 miles since Hood to Coast - that was back in AUGUST people!
2. Not running more than 1, 2 MAX days per week and always with friends <---my only preferred way to run these days.
|Devin, Lauren, me, Becky, Rebecca!|
I've actually been hitting the gym pretty hard for the past 10 weeks lifting weights so while I'm much stronger I haven't been keeping up with the cardio. I will admit every time I have gone out for a 6 mile run with friends I feel really strong and even felt good during a super speedy session with the Nuun Megan's the other week so that is confidence boosting I suppose.
|Me, Megan, Megan - I only ran fast to get to beer!|
I'll be running this for fun, friends, and to rep my ambassadorships with Nuun (psst $20 4 packs with free shipping Friday through Monday, go get some!) and Ragnar! I got some super sweet Ragnar gear in the mail yesterday that I'll share in my race recap.
So if you see someone wearing Ragnar/Nuun gear struggling out on the Seattle course this weekend just know that I probably shouldn't be running and don't feel bad for me ;).
Have an amazing and safe Thanksgiving everyone!!
QUESTION: Who is racing this holiday weekend? Turkey trot? How I wish the half was just a trot!
