Social Anxiety from the South

Allstate 13.1

Well, I signed up for it to get my ass in gear.

Because my summer has sucked for training. I hated the heat. My family life was completely chaotic. I’ve struggled to get back on track.

I was already committed to a 5k my sister was a part of organizing. I had a great time, so decided to go with my love for racing and sign up for a 10k (which was weird and awful to run, but I placed!) and this half-marathon.

I hurt. I puked. I even used the port-a-John on course which I never do. However I did PR, which is a testament to the training I did through Fitz at strengthrunning.com before I got in a rut. I also have quit drinking completely so I’m a few pounds down, which is a great help.

It was a good race, beautiful weather, great volunteers and law enforcement (some cray-cray behind the wheel. A reminder to be patient on race day, people.)

I just wasn’t where I wanted to be. I will do what @tai_Fung says and bask in my 8:00 PR…and then get my ass in gear for Savannah.

Rock ‘n’ Roll, ‘r bust!
