Episode 17-Another mad charade

Episode 17-Another mad charade

Happy Monday, folks.

As usual, we run down the week of running–a solid 23 mile week… and cover a local NH random 5k I did on a Friday night!  It wasn’t an easy course by any means, but I so hope this smaller race gains some more momentum in years to come.  If you love hills, the Angel 5k has one “question the meaning of life” type of hills right in the middle of it.

 

No, I did not PR…but I did place! 2nd in my age group! WOOT! With a 29:38…okay?

 

Also squeezed 2 group runs in this week, one which involved my friend Heather bringing her rad ass moped…and letting me ride it.

 

Another with my sister on Saturday for a gorgeous 3 on what SHOULD have been a rest day.

 

This week we talk a little about warm/hot weather running and tips for acclimating and staying safe.  I know it was a long winter, so let’s talk about not blowing yourself up on a warm day run.

 

Product of the Week:

SaltStick’s FastChews!   Easy to take running supplement to bring your Salt, Magnesium, Calcium, and Potassium back up–the big 4 lost when sweating.  Verdict-I love ’em, and I’ve used them for 2-3 months now.  Listen to the episode for more info!

Episode 16-I just love your flashy ways

 

 

This week we go through my runs and how completely shitty one was physically, and on the other side of the coin how awful I felt mentally before another. Blech.

This week, we’re doing a Q & A, and I answering some running questions, but also some factoids about music, beer, and tattoos!

 

  1. Long Run Hydration–Tailwind
  2. The “Run” Tattoo on my hand:
  3. Stride Length/Pace Question–kind of my opinion on that one!
  4. Favorite Band(s)
    Incubus!

    Queen <3
  5. Shoe?
    Nike Pegasus, but the 32s were my fave. I still have them kicking around.

     

  6. Beer?

    New Holland’s Dragon’s Milk
  7. Eyeliner, cheat sheet and brands?
    Trace and go 🙂
    NYX Liquid Liner

     

    Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
  8. Shower Beers?!
  9. Making shirts and merch? Yes and yes.  We’re just waiting on the new logo and we’ll start going from there.

Episode 11-We rendezvous a quarter-two

Episode 11-We rendezvous a quarter-two

Hey all!  I did something a little different this week, that maybe I’ll take on for all my race recaps depending how it goes.

1) I waited until the day of the half-marathon to record–which totally gave me anxiety..but I wanted my recap to be as authentic and as fresh to my memory as humanly possible.  That said I still missed a few parts I wanted to mention–so if there are a few shitty jump cuts, sorry.  I’m sure I’ll think of more cool shit I missed and have to touch on it next week.

2) I breezed past a specific product mention today since we’re recapping a race.  That will be back in the original format next week.

 

So, the On The Run Half Marathon in Old Orchard Beach, ME!

 

 

A small race in it’s 2nd year in this seasonal town, with a pretty sweet pre-race food set-up of bagels, donuts, chocolate milk, coffee, water, bananas–I was pretty impressed.  But…the start line wasn’t at the site of registration and bib pick-up?  Okay-sure.

There were a few cons, for sure, if I had to pick out a few things–the start line thing, not a ton of communication before the race via email or social media, the finish line had cars coming in and out of the area which seemed like an oversight.  Also, the finish line pictures cease after like 2:12ish.  Really??? That was a bummer.

But all-in-all, easy to get to, flat (except for one minor uphill-which I’m barely complaining about, haha), good food set-up before and after, had a place to hang to stay warm (more important for family and friends if it had been particularly shitty out.  AND—FREE PHOTOS.  I mean, it took some communicating online to find them, but I did, and easily the most from any race. Yeah, the finish line pictures weren’t there for me–but oh, well.

 

See if you can find me in the starting photos….

 

Mile..like 7.5

Mile 13-finally focused and haulin’ that sweet ass…

 

TO  A FUCKING PR!   2:18!!! YES!! After 2 kids, I beat my pre-preggo time of 2:25 back in 2013… 6 months post-partum.  I will fucking take that everyday–I don’t even need water, it goes down that easily.

Again, listen to the episode for a better run down, these are the Cliff’s Notes version.
