I realize my blog posts have been few and far between these days, but September is insanely busy for teachers!!! (As I'm sure most of you already know). Either way, here's a quick update about my training and my pacing a half marathon on Saturday. :)
In September many of your activities are about getting to know your students. Of course with a model:
The first Friday of the school year was totally awesome since I capped it off with my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season!
|It was like pure bliss in a cup. :)|
|21.25 miles basically made me useless for the rest of the long weekend. Yep.|
Lola vegged inside. And no, she didn't run, lol.
So as my running shoes approach 400ish miles they start to look like this. I know.
I made the executive decision to use my retired Nimbus 16s for my long run and the couple of short runs after that.
Until my new ones arrived!
Monday was all about easy cross training. I biked on the trail and it was awesome.
Of course I got in a few short runs after work as well each evening. It's reflective vest season again runners! Don't get caught in the dark like me.
And of course it's Maritime Race Weekend!!!!!
I sat through insane traffic to pick up our pace bunny kits and it made me even more grateful that I don't work downtown...lol. You should also note that I left straight from school and had blue crayola marker smudged on my left boob and the race organizer was so nice to let me know, lol!
Okay, so I think we can agree that this is a pretty cool bib. ;)
I'm doing the 1:50 half marathon hitting up 8:24 min/miles and 5:13 min/km. Follow me if this is your target! I'll be wearing a bright orange t-shirt on Saturday morning that says, "White Rabbit Pacing" on it. Probably my mint compression socks as well. And of course, these ears!!! I'm waaay too excited. I'm sure Matt thinks I've gone crazy, lol.
Thanks so much to Durwin and the MRW organizers for setting this up!
Now don't forget, tomorrow night is the Sunset 5k so come out and run, cheer or volunteer! Hope to see you there!
Thanks for stopping by the GGR blog and have a lovely day. :)
Are you taking part in Maritime Race Weekend?
Have you paced a race before?
