Earn Your Turkey 5K.

25 Nov
So I ran this race. And even though I earned a new PR, I’m not ready to talk about it. You see, I understand that running isn’t perfect but this run was flat out challenging emotionally. I’m having trouble finiding the words, and I’d rather not even attempt to put my feelings together. But it was one of those races where you feel so damn defeated on the inside, hitting the wall so early on, and questioning my own strength. Yes, there’s more to it… but that’s the jist of it.


I should be happy with 38:29 12:25 pace, but I can’t. I wanted more.

    I understand that feeling all too well. Everyone has bad days! Just chalk it up to experience, there’s always another race =)

      I’m crying. I’m upset. This wasn’t good, at all. Sure, I PR’ed (first race was 11/6 finished in 39:03 12:35 pace), but the “success” of this race has yet to be seen, if there’s any.

        You finished! That’s success (I like the post-it by the way), most people cannot do what you did, be proud! Maybe your asking your body to do too much too soon, just keep moving and try again =)
