Lift Bridge 10K and the Loons

Sunday, June 30, 2019

We had a busy Saturday. In the morning we ran the Lift Bridge 10K again. This is our 3rd year running it and it was the worst. It was so hot and humid. It was miserable.
 



After the race we crashed for a bit before we ventured to the Loons Game. Again it was very hot and humid. Game time temp was 90. It was so hot I had to buy a tank top. Here is a picture comparison from the last game where it was so cold I had to get a stocking cap and this game's tank. Haha




Hatfield & McCoy Half Marathon

Monday, June 10, 2019


I survived! I'm not sure how...but I did! I didn't prepare very well for this race. I did a few hill work outs before this race including a difficult hike up Bear Butte. But I should have been training them way before 3 weeks before. Oh well, I learned my lesson.

The weather was about as good as we could expect for June in Kentucky. It was rained the first hour which was good for cooling me off. This race has a history of being very hot so the rain was a welcome relief. The only bad thing is my shoes and socks were soaked which caused foot pain. Thankfully no blisters but it sure felt like I was getting them.

The first 4 miles were not as scary as I thought and I actually did better than I had imagined. I ran up hills!  That is not something I do often...I hate hills. The big hill was worse than I had imagined but I still walked it faster than I thought I would.  Yay!  Once at the top I ran down the hill nonstop. It was amazing. Sadly my feet really started to hurt with the wet socks.

The rest of the race seemed flat (it wasn't) and I walked a lot of it because my feet hurt. Overall it was one of my worse halves but I don' care.

Half #28....State #21 done!
