FITNESS Mind, Body, Spirit Games – 4 Miles – September 15

The FITNESS Mind, Body, Spirit Games 4 mile race didn’t go as planned this weekend. My hamstrings were extremely tight from my workout with Justin and I felt like I was going to vomit. I’m pretty sure the nachos I had the night prior didn’t help. It was good reminder that food is fuel and if you put junk into your body, it won’t run as well.

While my time wasn’t what I was going for, I still set a personal best for a 4 mile race. Can’t be too mad at that!

The Fifth Avenue mile is my favorite race of the year…because it’s a mile. For some reason though, it’s the hardest as well. Maybe because everyone is running at their fastest pace and one feels like she’s going to vomit? I was determined to beat my time from last year , but alas, it didn’t work out. I missed it by FIVE seconds. There’s always next year.

On another note, this race reminded me that Lisa at Early Morning Run and I have been friends for a long time. She’s the reason I started running and I appreciate all that she’s done to influence my life in such a positive way. Check us out just one year ago! I hope you have a friend in your life who encourages you to be fit and healthy, but also pushes you to be a better you.
