This Time I'll Be Bulletproof

Happy Race-a-versary to me! Happy Race-a-versary to me!

One full year ago, I signed up and completed the Trolley Run. It's the largest 4 Mile run in the country. I trained my little hiney off, and thought I was going to die at the finish line. I finished in 40:41, and was really impressed with myself. Like ecstatic. My husband snapped the picture on the left after the race, and I remember thinking that I looked incredible.

I was on cloud 9 that weekend. I had just lost 10% of my weight, and completed my first race.

Now, 365 days later and many road races under my belt: I showed up to the race, ran it and drove home. I finished in 33:45, with an 8:27 pace.

Today's Mileage: 4

Time: 33:45
