Less than two weeks until the marathon!
Two Race Recaps in this update.
First, Cajun Cup 10k:
I finally got a 10k pr! I ran 37:45 which bettered my previous time by about a minute! The race was in Lafayette, LA and the weather was lovely. I really like this course because it doesn’t have too many straights or too many curves. It also has pretty decent crowd support which is rare in a 10k. My splits were: 5:52, 6:03, 6:04, 6:07, 6:15? 6:12? I also won which was pretty cool!
Turkey Day 5 miler:
This past thursday I ran the turkey day race here in NOLA. I love this race because of the amount of people that come out. People are also usually pretty happy because you get to eat lots of delicious food afterwards. This race did not go as well as Cajun Cup, but it also didn’t go poorly. I placed second to Sarah Skotty and ran 30:32 (which is a pr for this race). Splits were: 5:55, 6:00, 6:06, 611, 6:19. I got a pretty terrible stomach cramp during the last quarter of the 4th mile and had to slow up more than I wanted. I hope to figure out what caused the cramp before the marathon!
Speaking of the marathon, OMG it’s approaching so quickly. My emotions keep jumping around from excitement to terror. I am worried that I haven’t put in enough training (I think everyone worries this). No matter what happens it gets to count as a PR because it is my first time racing this distance. Also, I am just happy to be uninjured and running PR’s!
LSU STILL UNDEFEATED! Bring on Georgia!
