Happy Sunday Runday!
This morning I was up stupid early for the Calgary Marathon 10k. What an incredible day! It’s quite the experience running with 15,000 people in such a beautiful city on a perfect morning. Even more incredible to share the experience with a bunch of amazing women, blog friends turned real life friends. I did not hit my goal time, but I finished slightly under my Woody’s time and I had a blast out there.
I had a blast at the Calgary Marathon today even though I did not meet my big goal because of a back injury. I ran the half marathon, 1K with my son and then paced a friend in her first 5K!
The best part was meeting so many amazing local bloggers and seeing my son, London, cross the finish line of his first race.
Ran my first 10k in years today! Had so much fun running the Calgary Marathon 10k with a fabulous group of women (and fellow blogger friends!). I contemplated not running it at all due to a busy weekend of moving and my lack of training, but luckily I was convinced otherwise. Thanks to Becky, Leigh, Lindsey and Kaella for believing in me! 🙂
I ran my first race post baby today and had a great race! I finished the 10k in 52:57 and was pretty happy with that as I went into the race just wanting to finish. Can’t wait for the next one!
With a ton of friends and bloggers running the Calgary marathon today I knew I had to get in a run ton.
I would’ve loved to get outside for my 10kms but with a pulled stomach muscle and new shoes I figured I’d stay on the treadmill.
Running on a treadmill feels like so much longer than running outside! But after a few km I got into a groove and thankfully my shoes felt ok (not great though) & my pulled muscle didn’t bother me.
It was a hot run inside, hence the sport bra & short shorts! (Photo attached)
Congrats to everyone that ran Calgary today!
Ran my second official marathon with my best running friend, Ann. It was by far the hardest marathon I’ve ran to date (harder than my ultra marathon, which if counted, makes the marathon count 3) with an extremely unexpectedly hilly course. We finished upright and smiling and maybe with a few tears from me.
That moment when the Bike Marshall stops and tells you to turn around and your heart sinks…”oh my gawd…I’m so slow they are telling me to just quit now” 😭 ….only to find out she’s just telling you you missed the 10k turnaround point. 😨 Who knew I could run over 10k? 😂 Related: It may be some time before I can walk normal again. #RedDeer #MSWalk
