This past Saturday I ran the Jingle Bell 10K, a local race supporting one of two elementary schools in my community.
Two weekends ago, I ran the Annapolis Running Classic Half Marathon. This event includes both a 10K and a half marathon, both of which are usually quite popular.
The marathon is not the yardstick against which runners should be measured, or against which they should measure themselves.
In my first year or so of running, one thing I thought I would NEVER do is skip a race I had paid good money to run. And yet, here I am, having skipped two 5Ks in the last two months.
For me to add a new song to my playlist, it first has to have a good beat or tempo for running, and second, it has to make me feel something.
The simplest way to describe FlipBelt is that it is a wide elastic band you wear around your waist to hold your phone, keys, and other items while you’re running, exercising, or even just going about your daily activities.
Am I the only one who feels like the day after a big race is sort of like the day after Christmas? I always feel a little sad that it’s over, and not quite sure what to do with myself… But, I am happy to spend some time writing about yesterday’s race, the 2017 Wineglass Half Marathon, which turned out to be a great experience overall and, shockingly, a new half marathon PR for me!
