Yesterday I completed the SLO Half Marathon!
This marks my 4th half marathon and a new PR of 1:57:32.
I finally achieved my goal to run a sub 2 hour half marathon.
What a day it was.
This note has been taped to my computer for a while now…
I might be (a little) goal oriented…
Since I live in SLO, this race was very special to me!
My mom, sister, friend Paula and BFF Julie, all came out to cheer me on.
(Julie even brought me flowers!)
Check out the awesome signs they made for me!
Here is a cool picture that my sister took at the finish line.
And of my medal!
In other news,
I didn’t sleep very well the night before the race (as per usual) and woke up at 3 am.
Needless to say, my most recent Craigslist purchase came in handy!
They make me go fast!
Before the half, I fueled up with my usual crock pot “protein oats” but made a few adjustments;
- 2 cut up apples
- 2 scoops of protein powder
- 2 tablespoons of PB2
- 2 tablespoons of chia seeds from Nativas Naturals
- 1/2 cup of almond milk
- 1.5 cups of oats
- cinnamon to taste
- sugar/ splenda to taste
I mixed it around and then filled the crock pot to the top with water. I let it cook over night and woke up to this amazingness…
This also made me go really fast!
After the race,
Today, I am having trouble walking.. it’s really fun (not really, it’s actually not fun at all)!
But, totally worth it.
On that note,
Do you like to set goals?
How do you hold yourself accountable to them?
Do you like bloody Mary’s?
