Quickie Update!

Hey! Just a quick update on today's race. A) There was NO blizzard. It snowed a little last night and then was raining before we went to bed, washing away the snow. When we got up this morning it had just started snowing pretty hard but only sticking to the grass. On our way into downtown it wasn't snowing at all, and was pretty dang sunny. B) I finished in 26.45. My goal for today was 27, so I should be happy but I'm so stinking competitive that all I can think about was that it's almost a minute slower than my PR. It was a hilly course and I was pretty happy not to be among the tons of people dry heaving at the finish line! Seriously, it was pretty nasty!!!! So, this was my recovery 5K and you better believe next time I am going FULL out!!

Lots of pics later but for now we have a Preds hockey game to go to! Hope all your training runs and races went FANGTASTIC today! (I love the picture to the right of the kid hugging Gnash, our mascot!)

I would *love* that time on a 5K:) Anyway, glad it went well. We ARE going to get that snow--something like 2 feet of it, I think!!

Good time young lady. Now is not the time to be PRing so soon after a marathon. Maybe next time.
Go Preds! (unless they're playing the Rangers or Lightning).

Congrats!!! And don't we all in the South know by now that "snow" in the forecast = "maybe, possibly, it's in the realm of possibilities"--?? :)

od job! Don't underestimate hills and teh fact that you just ran a marathon!

(although a race in the next month should be pr material if you rest correctly because the marathon should have given you peak fitness!)
