The Perfect Name!


I was so excited to see my blogs name on the tshirts!
This would have been a perfect run...
IF...
we could have eliminated the EXTREME
HEAT
HUMIDITY
HILLS!

Oh My goodness!
This may have been the toughest race I personally have ever run!
It was 97 with a heat index of at least 110!
Blazing Hot!


Everyone was just beat!
But I loved this race...it was small and simple!
Perfect for getting in a run!

Mark, my hubby, is in the green!
And Mellissa is in the purple!
I am so proud of her, she just started running about 3 months ago...
and is on FIRE!
Amazing!


Small races are perfect for lifting moral!
I got first in my age group and 3rd overall!
There was 100 runners!


After, they did a tower run!
One at a time they had the runners run up the tower as fast as they could!
Most of the competitors had just run the 5k.


I decided not to do it!
Mark, did it in 38 sec.
OUCH...the thought hurts!


There are the tower climbers!

  9. Great job on the tower run! Congrats on first place.

    I think that you are delighted with the USA soccer team result. Landon Donovan in Pretoria sent USA into the second round in the World Cup.

  12. Question: Are you every going to run a marathon again or stay with the half marathon? I am just curious, and your saying what a crazy question for a dude that walks 5K's. :)

    Keep running and I will keep walking. Love you.

  14. So cool your namesake has a running t-shirt!! I'm super jealous! Congrats on the win, girl...a win's a win!!! I'm not sure how you run in that heat/humidity, I am so wimpy on anything over 66 degrees. Ha. That's my heat limit. Record lows today with a high of 70. Yes, 70!!! And I had an awesome run. Oh, but tomorrow 95. Which means crap run!

  15. Way to go on the race and the award. That tower does look painful!

    I totally agree on the humidity. It is supposed to cool down next week, so I am keeping my fingers crossed so that I can get my long run in before the next heat wave hits!

  19. How strange, I happened upon your blog after clicking on a link in a friend's running blog. And find a post about a race I ran, with my mom and sister, where my sister came in 2nd in the 30-39 AG...weird...
