Slowly but surely, I'm adjusting to so many Life changes. I'm back on track with better eating habits and choices to help me lose the 8 pounds I've gained. I'm not happy to share this but if I put it out there, I know I can't hide from my own words.
This past Sunday, I ran the IMS Arizona Half Marathon. I wasn't expecting much from myself since I haven't been running that well due to pain in my lower right foot. Prior to this race, I have never ran a half marathon race with pain. This time around was the first time I fought the nagging pain and earned my Finisher's Medal. Official time: 2:44:42. I'm not happy with time but proud I finished. Best part of this race was seeing the smiling faces of good friends from our running group. Gotta love the comradery.
My running mentor came over last night and taught me how to properly use a foam roller. Initially I thought he was out to KILL me! After stretches, I felt a great deal better. I'm not walking injured like an overworked Vegas hooker so that's a good thing.
A huge thank you to our running group and good friend, Melissa, for keeping me calm at the Start of this race. I had to wave Melissa goodbye at Mile 3 due to pain --- that Melissa is a fast little rockin' roll diva!
Time to put this race behind me and gear up for the Six Tunnels to Hoover Dam Half Marathon next month. I'm excited about this destination run/getaway trip. I have somethin' to prove to myself.
