Last week was a decent week, my week’s mileage is I think it’d highest since my half marathon. I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things! I feel like Wednesdays are forever hard, I swear. The new group I joined is way stronger than I am so finding a pace buddy is hard; I hate having to make someone run slower than their pace with to accommodate me. I barely got any sleep during the week so going at a 5:50-5:55 pace for 10k was killing me when it shouldn’t have. However, I’m glad that I held on and finished it strong anyways since it’s going to help me become a stronger runner. Sooner or later, what I’m feeling as hard will be my easy pace (fingers crossed) – I may not be the fastest or strongest but I’m definitely going to be trying my hardest.
Speaking of trying my hardest, the other day I was flabbergasted as I opened my gmail and saw an email from Feetures! They had wanted to share a video with me and wanted me to share it with you guys. At first I was hesitant because what if it was a spam/phishing email – why get my hopes up? But I was curious so I clicked it!
The video was highlighting the beauty of the sport of running and the moms, wives, and everyday women who have a passion for it (that’s me! I’m an everyday women!! lol). It featured inspirational shots of the women running the 10K and crossing the finish line, and I found it so motivational (have I mentioned I enjoy streaming races and stalking the finish line videos trying to find all my running friends?). There’s just something about seeing people racing that lights a fire under my butt and gets me all emotional.
I’m pretty sure I cried with joy a little when I saw a running friend of mine breaking the tape at the Canadian Army Run because just the raw emotional displayed on her face had me choked up!
Anyways, enough about me and my feelings. Zooma and Feetures! Running has kindly offered to sponsor a giveaway! One lucky reader will get 1 pair of Elite socks and 1 pair of High Performance socks.
