My “first” half, 8K and everything else

Clearly I’m not getting into this blogging thing- that is going to change. The past two months have been busy. Tons of races and training it’s hard to keep up with everything.

My 8K went better than expected until the end when I got sick. I was crushing every mile until the last 1.5km when I got so sick I tossed it. It turns out I received cytomax sports drink instead of water. Even though I had a small sip it put me over the edge. But regardless of the small hiccup I finished and I am proud of my self for pushing through.

After that there was regatta after regatta and it all blended together. I did make another trip back to Victoria and I won one of my races. It was nice to leave Victoria on a happier note instead of a bittersweet one.

Then…I ran my first half! I will post a race racap soon. It was so much fun and I even broke my goal time.

I know that after I ran my first half-marathon I can complete another when I go to Florida in January. All of my training and hard work is finally paying off.
