Firstly, I want to say THANK YOU to all of you who sent kind words of encouragement my way on race eve and today!. Your words meant so much to me.
Now, let’s recap my SEVENTH- half-marathon. 🙂 HOLY 7! I still remember when I said I was a 1 and done’r. 😂😂😂 We got to the race 30 minutes before the start and everything was SO smooth. No extremely long lines to park or wait for the bathroom. WIN in my book!
Race start was 8 AM and it was a bit chilly but what better weather than 50’s to run in! Ideal race weather to be honest. We got to our wave and posted up right behind the pacer and I asked my husband - what’s our plan for this race? He goes to finish.. 🤦♀️ DUH, that’s always the plan!
So I made an executive decision - let’s stick with the pacers! YOLO!
The energy was SO MUCH FUN! The pacers were incredible and had so much energy. We stuck with them until about mile 10 where I started feeling some pain in my right groin area so I pulled back on our pace a bit. Mile 12.5ish we entered Lambeau Field and the energy was there but I was STRUGGLING. That last mile killed me. At mile 12.8 a girl said OMG I see the finish!!! Yas girl, I said let’s run it out together! Enter sprint mode...to the finish to end with a 22 second PR!
Apparently my silly “at home 30 minute workouts” are paying off because my training for this..WASNT impressive. 😂
This weekend, I spent some time with these drunken ladies! Off out for an 80s night on Friday while I stayed in with Smooth Radio 🎼😂🎤 #cavachon #cavalier #bichon #dogsofinstagram #dog #girlsnight #girls
