We ran the Hobble Creek Half Marathon on Saturday.
My Mom and Joanna had a goal to come in under 1:45,
Josh wanted to PR,
and I just wanted to look good while I ran. 😉
and ALL of us accomplished our goals!
Ya BABY! That’s what’s up! 😉
I waited for the crowds to cross the start line and took off.
I really like doing that at chip-timed races because it gives me the freedom to move easily for the first mile – rather than fight through crowds and get caught up with a faster pace group and end up going out too fast.
I kept my pace fairly steady for the entire race (right around 9:00 min mile) and only walked through the water stops and a few pit stops to adjust my skirt/shorts. 😉
I felt good through the entire race, gu’d at mile 6 and mile 10.
I knew I was gonna be close to 2 hours and really wanted to come in under 2:00, so when I hit the 12 mile marker, I picked up my pace. I think I passed more people in that mile than during the entire race.
I saw Lindsay and my Mom & Joshie out of the corner of my eye as I was passing by the park to the finish.
My Mom jumped in with me for a bit and ran with me, but I spotted a guy in front of me and took off to try to beat him. He must have heard me coming because he sped up too! I couldn’t quite catch him! lol. But I certainly tried! 🙂
I finished in 2:00:18
(overall 9:10 pace)
this bad ass mother runner ^^^
finished in 1:43!!
a 2 minute PR!!
and looked dang cute in her LuLu skirt!
She ended up in 5th place in her age group.
Last year – she placed top 3 with a slower time!
so this year… there were some SPEEDY mother runners!
Joanna was right in front of my Momma and finished in 1:42!!
and this BAD ASS brother runner
finished with a screamin’ time of 1:35!!
and a 5 min PR!!!
I am so proud of him!
He is kickin’ butt this summer!
AND he finished in the Top 100 males – so he got a special elite medal!
(p.s. LADIES – he’s single and ready to mingle… anyone interested?!)
Huge thanks to Miss Lindsay who came out to be our official finish line photographer!
I just LOVE that girl. She has always been so supportive of us and credits us for getting her into running. I can’t wait til she races again so we can be there for HER. 🙂
love ya girl!
Did anyone else run Hobble Creek?
Were you as excited as we were that it ACTUALLY started on time?!
It was a race day MIRACLE! 😉
Anyone else ever race in a skirt?
I think I’m obsessed. I need to start rockin’ my TeamSparkle skirts at CrossFit. 🙂
