On the Road Again

The last two weeks have been fun with races!
The first weekend in May I participated in the Kiwanis River Run 7k. It was my second run in this year's Run Lincoln County Grand Prix. This is my second year to participate in the Grand Prix and my second year running this course. It is an absolutely breathtaking course that takes place on a private horse farm.
Last year my goal for this race was to finish in under an hour and I succeeded by just a few seconds. This year my goal was to beat last year's time.
I was stoked to take off over four minutes!!! WOO HOO!

Last weekend, I participated in a local race that supports Camp Smile-a-Mile, a camp for children with cancer! This is my favorite local race.  This year I even talked Hubby into participating in the Fun Mile Walk.
The run starts at the local high school and winds through the neighborhoods surrounding the school. There are a few tough hills and it always seems like this is the first race to smack us down with Alabama heat and humidity.


 I had never finished this course in less than 41minutes, so my goal was to hit the finish line in under 40. I finished up at 39:35, and then walked the fun mile with Tommy. It was a fun morning.

  3. Sounds like you had some great races--congrats! I guess the humidity came out full force everywhere this week--thanks, Sprummer! (Spring+Summer=Sprummer, since in the South we don't really get to distinguish between the two!)

  5. So great Jessica! Congratulations. Since a hysterectomy, I've been having bladder issues associated with running but I long to get back into it!

    1. Thanks! In the fall I fought gout and had to take a break from running. It was horrible.
