Did ya miss me?
I bet you did.
Pardon my absence, but last week was rough.
A close family member passed away unexpectedly on Monday, so I was out of town for the week.
But, I am back now!
I ran the Rock n’ Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon last Sunday…
(stay tuned for the Race Review and Recap on Thursday)
and I have the Two Cities Half Marathon, this Sunday.
I have never done back to back races before, so this should be interesting.
Yes, very interesting.
Thankfully, I didn’t push it too hard at Rock n’ Roll LA, so I should be ready to kick a$$ on Sunday.
My parents will be there too, which will be a nice change of pace (pun intended)!
The race also has great swag and finish line food- I am excited about that as well.
This will be my 9th and final race of the year.
Dang, that’s a lot of races.
I have come a lonnnnnnnng way since the SLO Half in April and have made some great strides to get back to where I was two years ago.
I have, as of today, dropped over 8 minutes from my half marathon time.
I know. Pretty awesome, right?
I have a lot to look forward to next year/season.
The calendar is packed with tons of great races, I’ve been given the opportunity to be a pacer for the first time, and I might even try to fit a marathon in there somewhere.
Bring it 2016.
