39.3 Race Miles

The weekend started with the RnR DC Marathon Saturday . Weather was perfect 45 and cloudy . I ran conserving energy and speed as I was also racing 13.1 Sunday. I had even splits of 138 for a finish of 3:16. Happy and that was my goal. AG placed third out of many and 13th of 1700 women pretty cool!! 

I then ran to the airport - compression socks on- to make it to Boston.
Sunday was my CMS Team race - USATF- NE 13.1 New Bedford MA. 
We car pooled to the start. The race was wonderful, on the coast by the ocean, rolling hills. I felt very tired, but my legs were fine. On point for a 130 till mile 8, then the weight of the races sat in! Finished strong, but could not push it .

I need to work on my nutrition and add a few pounds before Fargo Marathon in May. This will help me from fading as I did in both races. I am going to add protein powder and additional vegan foods!) strong and need to be much stronger to get my sub 3:05! 

Thanks to

Race support I thank you

Motivation - Runners Paradise - Taper coming up

Lovely weekend! Saturday first belted out 12 miles on the treadmill with speed work. Awesome workout. 

I then traveled the Greater River Running Company store outside of Boston. Great store. Picked out a zip up from and Swirlgear ! Loved my time and gear! 

On then to USATF NE High School Indoor Championships . What an inspiration these young racers were. My co workers daughter won the huddles ! So much fun .

Sunday did a hilly 20 mile run with the CMS Women's coach. Felt strong and ready to tackle and get a fast time for The RnRoll DC Marathon and then The New Bedford half marathon in 2 weeks! 

I am the running ambassador for Healthe Organics and they named a protein bar with me- Eno Protein Bar. They are so tasty and I am very proud to be a part of their company. 

Taper in one week. State Sub 4 number 45 and marathon 93
Love my shirt !
