Race bling!

This week, I gathered all of my medals together at once and showed off the accomplishments!  There are a lot of memories there, and also a lot of reminders.  I need to remember how proud I should be of crossing every finish line, and I need to try and get back to finding my happy place in running!  My last few races over 5ks have really  been a mental struggle so I need to remember how to find my joy!

It was a pretty light week as far as running goes.  In fact, aside from some speed work on Wednesday, I didn’t run at all until Sunday’s long run, but I was really  happy to get back to my yoga class on Thursday night.  The long run was a challenge today because it started out very humid, started sprinkling, then the skies opened up for a full downpour. And we weren’t even halfway through the run. And we were running up a giant hill.  It made for a lot of squishy shoes, and that ultimate I AM A BADASS feeling after the run!

Next week’s goal: Three running days!
