Regardless of whether you think I'm super dedicated for still going to the race, or not dedicated to racing at all since I chose Miller Light over Gatorade, it doesn't change the fact that somehow, by a slight miracle no doubt, I managed to finish tied for 24th out of 211 people with a 24:41. HAHAHA. WTF?! Ah, if only that was an official course and I could count that as a P.R. My nike ipod definitely said it was 2.5 miles, not 3.1. Regardless, I think maybe I should throw everything I know out the window.
Follow a training plan? Nope.
Get a full night's sleep? No way.
Fuel up on beer, ribs, and corn pudding? Sure, why not.
|Waiting for the bus at 5:45 am. Told you I was going to wear earrings the next time I ran.|
|Live Reggae band at the race...love the steel drums (not so much when you've got a hang over though)|
|We found a really cute dog while waiting for the start|
|Don't worry - I'm not about to stab Radina with that fork...we have watermelon in that tupperware. P.S. - She did awesome and got a new PR!|
|At this point I really shouldn't be judging anyone, but a post-race cigarette? Really?|
|That was the weirdest post-race food I've ever had at 9 am. Jerk chicken and Rice. It was pretty good though.|
1. Have you ever surprised yourself by doing well when you weren't even trying?
2. What are your absolute necessities for having a good race? I thought super healthy eating the few days before a race was mine, but apparently not.
3. What is the best post-race food you've ever had?
P.S. - Sorry I haven't blogged in a long time. It had something to do with having too much fun on a lake with friends.
