|Desperately trying to warm-up with some pre-race coffee.|
|Unamused by 40 degrees in Florida.|
This race also doubled as my virtual Sub30v5K for the Sub30-Club. I was hoping to break 30, but that was really my only time goal for the trot.
When Matt, Steph, and I rolled out of bed and into the car at 7am, we were greeted by our first hint of fall weather. Overnight, the temperatures had dropped from the balmy 70s to the low 40s. I had remembered my new Saucony running zip, and Steph had her capris, but Matt was sadly unprepared.
|We three pre-race!|
(I need to mention that I saw someone wearing the FMB Half shirt, and I was so excited to see someone who had just run that race with me!)
|Pre-race and rarin' to go!|
|Pre-race and freezing!|
|Bridge, I will own you!|
|Post-race food and a view.|
|I love having such a fast sister!...Even if she is in my age group and ruins my chances of ever placing lol|
I am so grateful to my legs. I am grateful to my body for what it can accomplish. I am grateful for my relatively new mental toughness. I am grateful that I have the freedom, means, and time to dedicate to this activity that gives me so much in return.
Running is about finding your weakness and breaking past it.
|Seriously pleased with these splits, especially the last one!|
Stay tuned for actual Thanksgiving updates sometime this weekend. I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!
