Whew!

Raced my first cross race of the season Saturday. 8th in my category and12th overall. Not quite what I was hoping for but it was an absolutely gorgeous day for a race and I out in my best effort, what else can you ask for?

Raced again tiday…Although raced is a bit of a stretch :). Mostly just tried not to die!  I was so tired and sore from yesterday. Today was Frankenbike. It’s a 50 mile climbing, road, gravel, singe track bitch of a ride. I only did 25 and I have to admit I walked quite a bit of the hills. I know hills are my weakness, and these were rough!  Guess I have something to work on.  🙂

Overall it was a fun weekend, good courses, great weather, and good friends. Can’t wait for the next one!

first run since…

first run since April I think…I thought I was running a nice, easy pace that I could have gone at least two more miles and maintained…I’m actually faster than I was when I stopped running late last fall!  How sweet is that?
