Color Me Rad 5k, Tampa 2013!

Color Me Rad 5k! It was pretty fun.

Doesn’t matter how many races I do, there are always butterflies in my stomach race morning! Even when it is an untimed 5k!

Police Appreciation Run/Walk

I will be running the 10k in this race and I am greatly looking forward to it. My father is a retired officer and I hope to buy the pictures they take and present one to him framed for Father’s Day. He has also been immensely supportive of my running and very proud of me.

He has always been supportive of me but his pride in my running is especially touching because he used to run and gave up because he was not fast. His longest race was 6 miles and he stopped after coming in last place. He is so happy every time I finish a race and he never cares what my time was. Support from people that that is always the most important to me.

Ran My Own 5k

Since I skipped the 5k I had registered for on Sunday, I did at least go to the lake near my house and run 5k on my own, using my Zombie’s, Run! app again. I really enjoy the app but I am still getting a feel for it. I know they are still working on updates and such and will eventually have a live website that tracks your data for you. Overall though, I really enjoy it. It is fun to have something to shoot for even on days when I do not want to worry about my speed.

Another Race Missed

I am registered for a 5k on Sunday that I will not be participating in. This time I am not sick. In fact, I plan on going out running on Sunday to do a longer distance than 5k at a local nature preserve that has some great trails.

What does it mean to Race Epic?

Hopefully the organizers of Race Epic won’t mind, but I took some creative liberties with what exactly it meant to “race epic”.

The premise is to bring in 2012 by running. Makes total sense and I absolutely love the idea. Vastly different than any other New Year’s Eve for me. Yet, the more I thought about it, the more I thought that this Race Epic thing was for me to determine how I should do it. What would be more epic for me?
