Morning run…8 miles at a 9:30 something pace fighting through humidity! Good thing I have my friends to keep me going…this time last year I was really on the struggle bus with these humid summer runs so I’m glad to see a bit of improvement in my training. Hopefully it will pay off come October.
We also went up this famous ‘KFC hill’…yes, they call it KFC because there’s a famous chicken place right at the top…haha go figure. And I’m proud to say I’m now 3rd overall female in my run group to get to the top! I’ve gotta work on that time. I’m getting there.
But yeah…according to Runner’s World all of this summer training isn’t in vain. I’m so looking forward to the crisp cooler fall weather on the east coast, that’s for sure.
So today I thought I’d give you all some sweet discounts and deals! First off, I’m proud to announce that I’m now an ambassador for the Divas Half Marathon! This series does races all over the U.S (and in Canada!) – including pretty epic destinations like San Francisco Bay, St Augustine Beach in Florida, DC’s Wine Country and even San Juan Puerto Rico! I ran the race in Galveston and had a total blast!! I mean tiaras, feather boas and champagne is basically a runner girl’s paradise.

Aww man, I almost signed up for the Divas Half in VA, but ended up registering for the Woodrow Wilson Half instead. It’s in Oct. and it’ll be my FIRST half-marathon… Finally! Lol! Great job on being an Ambassador for such a great race series!! Perhaps if all goes well with this year’s half, I’ll sign up for the Divas Half next year! 🙂
YAY for signing up for your first half! Go girl!!! So very exciting! Glad to see you back in blog land too! 🙂 🙂 Hope all is well!
Thanks – I’m excited and super nervous all at the same time! 🙂 And yes, glad to be back! All is very well – between being a wife, mom to a now very active toddler, work, blah, blah (**excuses, excuses lol**), i haven’t made much time for blogging. Hopefully, I can get back to being a bit more consistent though!
Diva Run sounds so fun! I’ve decided I want to train for a half, and am slowly building up my distance. So far, only at 2 miles, but you have to start somewhere!
Sweet! Absolutely! Take your time and enjoy the journey!
Congratulations on the ambassador-ship!!
Omg this one looks so much fun!!!!! Congrats girlfriend!!! 🙂
It’s totally fun! I’ll be back for it in 2017
