Today, we had tempo day. I was determined to run 3.1 miles at my temp for my race on Saturday. I did it! I ran it in 34:45, and my goal was to be at 35 minutes on Saturday. That felt really good. I did have to walk twice because I was really pushing myself, but I had some good friends help me stay strong and finish strong. I love running with Nixa! Shannon said she now expects me to be under 34 on Saturday! lol So, I have a new goal!
Jenn and I are registered for our half marathon. Last night, I went to the pre-race Bass Pro party. They had some food and drinks and did a raffle. They told us about the route. They showed us the shirts. They look really cool. The people running the full get a really cool black shirt with 26.2 on the back. We, running the half, will get a white shirt with 13.1 on the back. They look really cool. It was fun hanging out with my friends from Galloway and Nixa last night.
On a funny side note, I put band-aids over my nips before any run. It prevents the infamous nipple bleeding. If you do not know what that is, just google it. It hurts, and is not fun. The funny part about the said band-aids is that I sometimes forget they are on and take my shirt off at the gym. I got some funny looks today. It can be pretty embarrassing. Luckily, I was able to make a joke out of it today. I said wardrobe malfunction and got a few chuckles.
