Hello 35!

9-12-15 – What better way to kick off my 35th birthday weekend than with a 5k race? Found a race not far from home, put on the most colorful outfit I could findΒ  and decided to go for it! It was a warm day and I was not sure what to expect, but I promised myself no matter what I would Never Give Up and that is exactly what this girl did! I earned myself 1st place in my age group; earning my 1st running trophy! I couldn’t ask for a better way to kick off 35! Age is just a number! You can do anything you dream of! Dream. Believe. Achieve.

7-11-15 “In this world; there is no force equal to the strength of a determined woman.” This race meant a lot to me as it would be the day I would earn my 40th medal! However, one day before this race I was told by my doctor that I had a sesamoid stress fracture in my right foot (my 2nd stress fracture). Of course; the crazy runner that I am… my 1st questions was “does this mean I can’t run?” My doctor told me that running on it would not make it worse, but I definitely needed to take 2 full weeks off of running! I decided to run the race at a comfortable pace and earn medal number 40! I ran the race at a comfortable 41:47 and took the next 2-3 weeks completely off from running. I focused on strength training ; doing everything I could to keep myself strong so I could soon be healthy enough to run!
