LVL 10k to 24hr Relay

Sunday the 19th was the Level Renners 10k in Brockton MA

The day was hot and humid
Grand race consisting of 2 loops and one hill. Raced it on Mountain legs not remembering speed until mile 1)
Then I set into a sweaty groove and finished in the top 10 barely. I was happy with my effort for the day. Saw the wonderful LVL guys, Megan, Sara, Rob, and some CMS Teamates Heidi, Arthur, Krissyy, Jim, and Dave, made it a 14 mile day

Saturday the 25th I was asked to be a part of the Mystics relay team for The Relay around the lake 24hr event.

I had a relay partner with a leg at 6 then at 6pm - we traded off every other 5k or 10 k trying to get in as miles as we could for the team Mystics.

Very pleased with my racing- no soreness or issues, my splits were nice, fastest after each 5k and better in the evening with a 740 average. 25 miles for the day. Team Mystics ended up first for the women and second overall- grand fun!!!!!

90 miles for the week. Swimming daily huge difference in muscle recovery. 

Thanks to Karhu for the Karhu Strong's and then the Fast 5's for my kicks

Thanks to LaceLocker for keeping my laces tight and to Swiftwick for my white 12' compression socks.
Honey Stinger GU and chews and Amrita bar during my race kept me fueled well plant based!

Next up is the Watuppa10k Trail race August 1st.

Mountain race number 5 in the series was Sunday July 11th

Conway NH

It dawned early and warm, quite warm and humid

The course was brilliant. Uphill then across the ski course, through woods and then a few miles down hill till another uphill, 2 times for a total of 8.2 miles.

Absolutely fab

I felt strong in the first half then totally ready for the second even with the weather becoming hot 

Loved and smashed the downhills.

Ended the day with a total of 12 miles
5th AG - glad I had a negative split with a 6 min reduction in time for the second round.

2 more on the Mountain circut for me- Greylock mountain then Bretton Woods)

Thanks to Swiftwick for my compression socks, Karhu for my brilliant trail shoes, Lace Locker for keeping my laces locked, Honey Stinger for my one honey GU , and Amrita Health for seriously delicious vegan apple bar

Canada to Loon

BLubec ME. What a quaint quiet town on the boarder to Canada. I ran the international marathon on June 28 th . Epic time . 
You must have a passport and verify your number first on each boarder . It takes quite a bit of time.  Completely worth it. The marathon starts in Lubec then to Campebello Island. All hilly with more hills. 
I raced well - prepared for the hills. I let the ladies fall back and then stayed in second to the finish. Happy with my effort on this challenging race. 
Next was Loon Mountain Mountain race, yesterday July 5.

A very tough one, 6.7 miles up and down, 40% grade, mud, all in Lincoln NH.

I tried, ran well, my legs were tired though from the marathon last weekend. I walked the 40% grade, made it though , and felt mildly bad and quite tired at the end. 

My Team rocked it and we ended up in First! 

Another epic race in the books !!!!!!!
3 more to go in the Mountsin USATF-NE Series))))

Cranmore this Sunday.
Thank you to all of my Sponsers for the support .
