As the race’s tagline says, “What’s a hurdy durdy? Who knows! But it’s sure fun to say…” I got another trail race in with the Western Reserve Racing group. Trail races are easily my favorite type of races to run, even if I have to walk a chunk of them.
I’m awful at nailing down when I started training for this marathon. All I’m certain of is the date I’m running it, the fact I won’t die (finishing is hopeful), and that I have a training plan.
This race was a bit of a mess for me… It started off with me running quite close to being right on the nose to the start. I had an appointment with an allergist that ran far longer than I expected. It’s what I get for listening to my mother because the appointment should have been sooo much shorter than 2 hours…. Anyway, that deterred me from wearing my running gear to the doctor’s appointment and then driving straight to the race.
Another 5k! This was at Rocky River Reservation and it just so happens that I have a friend that works there. J kindly informed me of the race and I couldn’t say no!
A lot of what kept me from updating was that I was trying to nail down a training plan between running, quilting, and being social. Yes, quilting. People are having babies, I make ’em quilts. Running has taken up most of my time though. I started running my running club Monday nights at one of the local parks. Though I didn’t manage to make it this week… I was cat sitting and didn’t have enough time to stop home and head back out.
I ran this Memorial Day (apologies for it being a bit late!) at one of the local fire houses. Nice fairly flat, easy course. And I ended up with heat exhaustion…
