Shamrock TowneBank 8k

Shamrock TowneBank 8k

It was great to be back in Virginia Beach! I had my eye on these races for a while and was so tempted to do one of the challenges, but I ending up deciding not to do it. I kicked off the start of the race season with the Rock ‘N’ Roll DC Half Marathon just the weekend prior. I am making it a goal this year to not over do anything and at least TRY to not get injured (keyword try!). I…

Rock ‘N’ Roll DC Half Marathon

Rock ‘N’ Roll DC Half Marathon

Race season has officially begun! I kicked off the start of the season with the Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon in DC.

Fall Classic Half Marathon Charlottesville

Fall Classic Half Marathon Charlottesville

My very first sponsored race! Wow, I was in shock that someone actually believed in my ability to possibly one day become an Olympic runner (we shall see about that!). I woke up really early for this race at 4 am. I could not sleep much anyways and I like to take my time getting ready in the morning and not feel rushed. My pre-race breakfast included oatmeal with a little bit of all natural almond butter and 100% whole wheat toast…
