Happy Friday! Truth be told, as I'm writing this it's a little past midnight and I am still wide awake. I've been sick for the past week. Finally, I'm starting to feel like my normal, energetic self which leaves me wired and thinking of all the things I need to get done. I, however, am going to neglect my long list of to-do items, and write a "Friday Faves" blog post instead.
If you've watched or read any news stories lately, then you know that once again, there are wildfires raging in California. One of these major wildfires is the Kincade fire which broke out at about 9:30pm on Wednesday, October 23rd. Due to intense winds and dry vegetation, the fire was fast moving, erratic, and difficult to contain. Sadly, by Thursday afternoon, all runners received notification that the Hallowine Run had been cancelled.
I did it! Another postpartum PR! I improved my time on the Rock n Roll San Jose course by over an hour! (I was 8 months pregnant last year.) I bettered my time on my last half marathon a couple of weeks ago by 7 minutes!
Race weekend almost didn’t happen for me. It all started Thursday after work while driving to pick up baby from daycare. I heard a funny sound coming from my car and wondered what it was. When I arrived to my destination 10 minutes later, I heard the sound no one enjoys... the sound of air escaping quickly from your tire. I had a flat tire.
