We had a crazy week last week...and this was how I ended it, running my 2nd half-marathon.
I had SUCH an amazing time! The course was stunning, running down American Fork Canyon, through a golf course, and finally past the Mt. Timpanogos Temple. It was cool and breezy, I had awesome music pumping through my headphones and surprisingly...I felt STRONG.
I say surprisingly because I literally had done one long run since my last half...3 months ago! Even though I didn't really train, I shaved 8 minutes off my time and set a new personal best. I am still slow...but as long as I am progressing with each race I am happy :)
I am so happy I did another race...after my last one I was content to have crossed it off my bucket list and never do one again ;) I never thought I would say it...but I actually had fun running :) And NOTHING beats that feeling of accomplishment when you see your little family at the finish line cheering you on, knowing you pushed yourself farther than you thought you could.
So that's what I was doing last week :)
Now that my race has passed, I feel like I can focus on some projects I have been wanting to do before school starts. Make sure you keep coming back to see all the fun we are going to have...and THANK YOU so much for visiting Blue Skies Ahead!!
