One of my friends could not make the race due to her boy breaking his arm the day before. BUMMER! Poor kiddo! My other friend, did and she smoked! She/s only been training this summer and she got a time of around 32:30! Here's my question (and I will research this a bit on the internet too,) but how accurate are your Garmin 305's? The route was clear and it had me at 3.1 miles in 33:04, where the chip time was 36:15. Just curious. I am trying to see the war vs the battle or the forest for the trees...every race is different and at the end of the day - I am in this for more reasons than to race. Here's the contrast from the first week of June to now:
lbs lost - 5
Leg swelling due to Reynauds - Pretty much gone.
I have calve muscles. really - there are lines there!
Thighs are much more toned - perfect? Nope, but really, really much better. I can actually wear shorts.
Arm's - I am not ashamed to go sleeveless!
Vitamin D - levels normal.
Getting out of my house for other reasons than just walking the dog up the driveway - Fantastic!
Adventures - many with my long runs and 5K races.
High fives from my son for my run times - get them weekly now! He's such a sweetie!
So, with just a few weeks - this could all happen to you too! Go slow, get persistant and surround yourself with all that interests you! Running rocks and I will keep on keepin' on!
More pics to be gotten off my phone for tomorrow's post. There was actually a guy that ran it in full lumberjack geat - winter hat with the earflaps included...he was sweet and let me take his pic! Shirts are cute too, by the way!
