Am I Goofy or What? Week #10 Training Recap

This recap is brought to you by…
The Lucky 13’s [again, I know] on Sunday!
This is how we get ready for a race folks!
Don’t you just love these guys? I sure do!
The Lucky 13’s ran the Buckeye Classic 10K on Sunday at Highbanks Metro Park – Ohio’s own personal Hills from Hell. It’s a tough race – I ran it last year – and not for the faint of heart by any means. I am so proud of all of my Lucky 13’s who not only ran this race, but kicked it in the a$$! You guys are amazing!
I was honored to volunteer at this race, the first time I have done so, and it was a blast! I will definitely be volunteering at more races. I got to be at the Finish Line and hand out medals – so awesome!! Here are some of my Lucky 13’s bringing it in strong. I am especially proud of my beautiful sister, Mollie, who ran this race for the second year in a row. A glutton for punishment, shall we say? 😉 The Finish Line is my new favorite spot, by the way, the perfect place for great photos!
Mollie & Me at the Finish Line!
Laurie and Kim!
Please note the medals – wonder just where they got those?!

Aren’t they awesome?!

Congrats to all who ran yesterday!

Am I Goofy or what?! My Weekly Training Recap:
  • MON 11/07 – 10.5 mile bike ride on Camp Chase Trail; 1:20 total 
  • TUES 11/08 – 3.25 mile run to the Polls (to Vote) and back; 44 min total /13:26 pace
  • SAT 11/12 – 8 mile run (hills); 2:03 total /15:17 pace 
  • SUN 11/13 – 4 mile run; 59 min total /14:47 pace
Yes, I am pretty happy with that week! I just wish I would have motivated myself to get out the door and run on Friday instead of resting.
This week I plan to keep up on running miles and pay a little but more attention to what I eat. The scale has started to creep back up and that does not make me happy at all. 
Until the next mile marker,

    The race was so fun and it was AWESOME seeing you there!!! (Even if I did the finger waggle to get you into the picture with us. HA!)

  6. RunningMandy says

    Oh – and I totally stole the picture of me crossing the finish line and edited my already posted race recap to include it. HAHAHAHA!

    AWESOME week of training my friend!!!!!! you totally rocked this week! and seriously…if it was your smiling face and positive self handing out medals at a race I had just run…that would be the best finish line ever. although it would probably be more fun to just run it together 🙂 congrats to all the lucky 13s!!!

  8. Niki Miller says

    Glad you got to volunteer! It’s almost as fun as actually running. I think I saw you at the finish line, but didn’t get a chance to say Hi, plus I didn’t want to be creepy 😉 “Hi, it’s nice to meet you, I stalk your blog all the time!”
