|Mud & Bagels. What more can a girl want?|
Boy was I unprepared. Although it was just a 10k, but I've already told a few people that it's quite possibly one of the harder races that I have run thus far. It kicked my ass. Let me take that back... the muddy hills, the running through creeks, and jumping over logs.. all those things kicked my ass.
My splits for the race are borderline hysterical, as I keep right around a 7 minute pace with the exception of mile 2 and 5... which drop down to 9 mins. Gee I wonder why.
|Hey, that's me!|
|$25 gift certificate to a running store? Don't mind if I do.|
Following the race I treated myself to two of my favorite things; a bike ride to the pool, and an ice cold smoothie.
|Beth, my bike.|
|Not my best shot. Yes mom I'm wearing sunscreen.|
-Half a mango (or frozen chunks)
-1/3 -1/2 of a cucumber (sliced)
- 3-4 TB of lime juice
- 1 banana
- 1 cup of milk
It sounds like a weird combo, I know, but it was honestly the perfect summer afternoon treat. Try it out!
How was everyone's weekend? Anyone else do any races?
I'm off to give myself a pedicure. Cheers!
|After all that mud, my feet deserve it.|
