First day of May means its time to find another gear, and lay the groundwork for marathon training 💪🏼! When my run coach @julesontherun_nh loaded my training plan for May (full of speed-work and lots of miles 🤨) I was just a smidge concerned...but today’s miles felt strong and speeds I’ve never been comfortable with came a little easier than I expected! I don’t say much about it here - but I’ve got big goals for the Fall, and it’s going to be a fun Summer chasing them down 😬! Bring it on @chimarathon - 158 days and counting 👊🏻!
This race never disappoints - Mount Vernon to Alexandria - and the sunshine 🌞 had every runner in town flying down the parkway! This course kicked my tail last year, but this year I got revenge 🤣 - never anticipated a PR, but that’s what I got! I bested my time on this course last year by almost 10 minutes 😲 (1:23:08 vs. 1:32:41) and beat my 10 mile PR by more than a minute, set earlier this month! Thanks @adbabb for watching 👶🏽👦🏼👧🏼 while I run, you’re such a blessing ❤️!
