RunCLE40- Back on track
|The hills today- Intense with a capital I!|
The first mile was really, really cold and I was cursing myself for not bringing my gloves. There were also 5 hills within mile 1 which wow! It's been a minute since I have done hills out there, (like roughly 2 years). So, it was a little crazy. We took lots of walk breaks and did the best we could. The walking took over the last few miles out on the course. The final little leg of the race was all uphill, and we were both completely spent. Roughly 40 yards out we started the slow roll to the finish line and the most amazing thing happened. There was about a dozen people at the end and they all started clapping and cheering us on! It was so great, there was only about 10 people behind us but it made us feel like rockstars. Then I looked again and I was shocked as heck to see my awesome boyfriend standing there cheering us on too! It was the best and I couldn't be more lucky!
Overall, it was a super tough course but we did it and I'm so glad we did!
Here's to a great week of training! Have you guys signed up yet?
