It’s that time of the month…
I’d tell you that I feel jinxed. I’ve had to run THREE races in the rain in the past month.
Anyone else had to race in the rain lately?
I’d tell you that it’s not all doom and gloom. The sun does shine during the week. So if you run weekday races, you do run in sunshine and heat.
Do you ever race during the week?
I’d tell that it’s been stressful since I returned form my Florida tennis vacation. My arch started to ache and hurt after running. All that Googling pointed to PF but I refused to give into it. So I ran a 5k anyway. And now, it no longer hurts. (And no, this kind of behavior is not recommended.)
Ever race despite pain and maybe being injured?
I’d tell you that the only good to come out of my bucket list Brooklyn monsoon half is that I may have qualified for a race. My first.
Have you ever run a qualifying time for a race?
I’d tell you that FOMO is setting in for 2019.
I thought I would go to Florida in March,as usual, visit my friends and of course, run a half marathon.
Now some local runner friends are tempting me with this:
Will I be able to resist??
Do you ever register for a race because your friends are twisting your arm?
I’d tell you that I’m not a slow runner but I’m not a fast runner either. Pace is relative, right?
On Memorial Day, I got asked to run with some runners that I didn’t know. They said that it would be an easy pace to view the war monuments.
I definitely found out what it feels like to be BOTPer. And I was huffing and puffing. They were nice and stopped to walk several times so I could catch up for a few moments.
Do you ever run with runners who are faster than you and struggle to keep up?
I’d tell you that today I am running a race for 11th time. The Freihofer Run for Women is the only race that I run EVERY year. I’m excited to see all the new runners complete their first 5k, elites such as Joan Samuelson and so many local runners that I know from running groups and races.
No goals for this one… just fun fun (like last year) and no rain, please.
Do you have a favorite race that you run every year?
