Well I must say, I survive the USMC Mud run and I think this was the most fun that I’ve had in awhile. It was nice to run a race and not even worry about your time at all. This took all the pressure off and made it enjoyable. It went surprisingly fast. The 6.2 miles were easy, probably because of the 36 obstacles. I would defiantly do it again. I have plans to do the same one next year. I would do the one in October but there’s another race that I am planning to do. I would highly recommend this race if you are looking to challenge yourself.
My next race is the Run Ballantyne 10k. I have mixed emotions about it right now but knowing some of my friends will be there will help me to look forward to it, at least to see how they do. I don’t know if I will go for a PR. I will probably decide that on race day.
My goals for now are to get some quality long distance runs in. I would like to train up to somewhere around 16 mile or 4 loops around the Landsford canal 4+ mile loop. This will be a challenge for me and should get me in decent shape for my 12K run in Columbia and my beach half marathon the week after.
That’s it for now!
