Race #39 – Nightmare on the Clermont Trails 5K, October 29, 2016
Race #40 – 15K on the Clay, November 20,2016
Done! Finished! 3 years ago I put this goal in place. I started this blog and started to count every race. In 10 days I will turn 40, and I want to thank everyone for their support, for reading this blog, for encouraging me to continue and for cheering me on.
Today’s race was hard. I hadn’t trained much and it was 9.3 miles on a course that I knew would already be challenging. My knees were bothering me and I was thinking that it was not going to end well! At mile 5 I recognized 2 awesome ladies from the run club I joined earlier this year. They invited me to run along with them and we stuck together until the end and finished strong. I’m not sure I would’ve felt as good as I did without them!
“When you feel like quitting, think about why you started.” Commit to your goals…you never know what kind of people you will meet or experiences you may encounter.
