A Weekend of Races
The Oakbrook Half Marathon was on Monday.
13.1 miles at 1:47
Beautiful. Wooded. Hot. Humid. Hilly.
I was able to PR — my fastest time for a half marathon, yet!
I finished 4th in my age group, 25th overall for the women.
My foot still needs some TLC, but so far so good. I knew what I was getting myself into by running long and hard on a bum heel. It didn't start bothering my until mile 8, so that wasn't so bad. A little rest this week and each day it will improve.
Ice. Ibuprofen. Rolling, rolling, rolling...
On Saturday, my daughter ran an invitational and placed 21st for the sophomores.
3 miles at 21:33
So exciting to watch her run.
As I mentioned before, I am one of those moms. The yelling, cheering you on, loud moms.
And I'm getting to know Annie's running friends by name and how can I resist yelling for them too?
