1—I had a pretty good week in the running category! I got 3 solid runs in—2 thirty minute runs and then a quick 3 mile run. Half marathon training is so easy 🙂
2—Voting for my second chance opportunity for the Chicago Marathon ended yesterday. I will find out today if I won. I’ll let you know! If I win… my training program is going to be modified to start training for the marathon again!
3—If I do not win the contest, I am excited to finalize my fall schedule! I will definitely be running in Tulsa in November regardless of what happens today. Other possibilities include Iowa, Connecticut and Rhode Island/Massachusetts.
4—Since my summer running schedule is pretty low key, I’ll be spending a lot of my time at my favorite summer time place—Arlington Race Track. I was able to go yesterday for the first time of the season and I had a great time. I won one race and ended up bringing home money… that is always a win in my book.
5—I’ve got another 5k this Sunday! I’m determined to have a sub 30 5k by the end of the summer (my current PR is 30:36) and hopefully a 10k PR as well. My second cousin is also doing the 5k and afterwards we are going back to her father’s house for breakfast! I cannot wait to enjoy a good 5k with family.
