I had a 5k sandwiched in a 20 mile session) leading up to CIM marathon.
The day was warm and grey. Overcast. Felt good. Strong. 4 mile warmup. Changed out of warm up gear. Ran to the start. Found the pace. Held it.
First women. Lovely.
5ks are not not my race ever of choice, but I am getting better at them! Happiest with the win
Then I jogged into my 10 mile session.
My best Friend ran as well and came in first in her age group!!!!!
Next I had a 5 mile turkey day race
Cold cold cold
Warmed up with three
The race was good. My watch stopped after 2 miles lol so I just gauged the pace.
On track and strong.
Came in fourth women and 1st age group
Fun day with teammates
