Seaside

Today I ran the Seaside Half Marathon in Ventura. Yet another race on a whim (aka I have been so busy that I forgot that I had back to back races in February.) Not my smartest move to have been training with one short run per week but I got out there anyway and did my best.








<---------
I wore this Nike top.









Look familiar?
Probably so because I've worn it for about a week straight. It's just so soft!











It was absolutely beautiful out today!

Unfortunately I committed the biggest runner sin ever and forgot my Garmin. I about died inside when I realized I had forgotten it.

It actually turned out okay though because it made me focus on enjoying the race running. (Imagine that!)

Although I had no idea where I was at pace wise during the race and I'm sure I had a less than stellar time I honestly can say I am super proud of myself. Physically, I am way out of shape. There is no way around it. But that's an easy fix and the least of my worries. Mentally, I was on point. I was so focused and determined to finish strong. I ran a negative split and didn't let one person pass me the entire second half of the race. I stopped counting after I had passed about 30 people. Talk about a come back!



The greatest mistake you can make in life is to continually be afraid you will make one.

Anyone else run this weekend? Anyone run San Diego? Tell me about it!

  1. Yay for a negative split!! I have yet to accomplish that in a race. Also, seaside can't be beat. Those pictures are making me so jealous as I look out my window at my backyard of snow.
