It's hard to start up again after a year off, but I am recommitting myself to a new goal and I think this would be a great way to keep myself motivated. More about that another day. I am still thinking about how to best get there.
In the mean time, I have just been keeping going.
During the summer I ran the Arizona Road Racer's Summer Series. 5 Races during the Phoenix summer are not for the faint of heart. Despite wanting to quit during the Fourth of July Four Miler when humidity was at 65% and the temp was 89. But I powered through.
Ran a 10K at elevation without getting acclimated. First time I came in dead last in a race. (Life is about all the experiences, right?)
Started half marathon training again. Got to see beautiful things like this.
Got a 5K PR at the Hot Chocolate Run. And equally important, got hot chocolate!
This fall my husband and I ran the Las Vegas Rock and Roll marathon.
Then I kept running. And we did the Arizona Rock and Roll again.
