I spent all day Saturday making sure I was properly fueled and rested. I drank a ton of water to keep hydrated and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at a Leng Thai. This was a new restaurant for us and I must say, it surely impressed us all. I got the Cee Yew, which was highly recommended by many Yelpers. On our way home, we stopped for some ice cream from Cold Stone, I got mint ice cream mixed with Oreo cookies. It was good, but it wasn’t as good as coffee ice cream mixed with Oreos!
This was one of my best races yet! I forgot what it was like to run an amazing race. My focus, my speed, and my playlist is what made this race so awesome. This was the first time I listened to music during a race. It’s also nice to have a friend there racing with you! I’m so glad Adriana loves to run as many races as I do, she finished in 1:15, that’s an average of 8 minute miles! I told you she was speedy. 😀
Here are my stats:
Official Chip Time: 1:24:39
Distance: 9.35 Miles
.35 2:55 (8:20 pace)
After the race, Mali, Derek, Dave and I went to Lenny’s to grab some lunch, where I got what I always get. A grilled cheese on a hero with tomatoes and sprouts. It was delicious, but I was hungry again 2 hours later.
After Lenny’s we went to B&H to grab a couple things for Dave and then headed over to Timberland to use our ahhhmaaaazing 55% off coupon, given to us by the lovely Erin who works at Timberland. I bought a pair of these shoes and I love them! I want the other pair in white now 🙂
More Magazine Women’s Half Marathon this weekend! Not trying to PR, but hoping for another fantastic race!
