Great job on your 1st half marathon emoticon I don't think I could do 13 miles in the heat, that is why I will stick to 5K's for the summer.

Here we go:)

Sorry I haven't been around much! Life has been super crazy lately.

I completed my first Half marathon last Saturday!!! It was hot (around 90 when I finished), and for the last few miles it was tough. But I finished! My time was 2:56:33.

I just did my first ever 5k race! It was a charity race to benefit UNICEF held in three Spanish cities at once: Santander (where I ran), Madrid and Valencia. There were over 5,000 people running between the 5k and 10k sections.

I managed to finish in just under 35 minutes with only about three minutes of walking (mainly due to one large and unexpected hill), which is very similar to what I have been doing on the trails near my house. It was a great experience and I can't wait to sign up for my next race!

Decided yesterday to go ahead and run today in the 5K Fun for "RED" iness to support disaster relief efforts for the Red Cross. It was a nice, cool morning for a run:) I probably shouldn't have ran that 8 miles yesterday (first time to run that far) because my muscles were a little sore today. Oh well, I still had fun. Plus I got a coupon in my packet for an hour long muscular massage emoticon

Here we go:)

I'm doing the Lederhosenlauf 5k on Saturday in St. Paul. There is a German themed costume contest, I wish I was creative enough to come up with an easy to run in themed costume...it'll be fun to see what others dress-up as!

Good Luck to all the racers!
