Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Run 4 Luck 2010

The wind was incredible. We lost electricity around 4:00am. It stayed off for an hour before it came back on. Then it went off again. It blinked off 3 times before I left for the race. That should give you some indication of the wind that I was dealing with. As I type this, we currently do not have electricity. I was home for about 30 minutes before it went off again. This time it has been off for hours.


I had really wanted to do this race in under 39. But with the weather conditions, I just wasn’t sure how it would go. The starting horn went off and here we went. I was hemmed in and determined to get unhemmed. So yes, I went out too fast. Way too fast for me. At one point my pace was around 7:00 minutes which was way too much for me. I slowed down but tried to keep a decent pace as best as I could.

I was doing ok until around mile 2.5 and I started struggling. I didn’t remember it being this hilly last year. I tried to keep my pace under 10:00 but at times just couldn’t.

Around mile 3.25 I was trying to push harder as I thought I could set a PR but I was struggling bad. Then I saw my running buddy pass me. It spurred me to push harder. I caught up with her for a moment but I couldn’t continue at her pace. But it motivated me to push harder.

With the finish line in sight, I gave it all I had. I crossed the clock at 37:22. WOO HOO.. I just set a PR.
