In May 2011 I "ran" (walk/jog/walk) my first 5k....this lead to a racing addiction of sorts. I am not winning these races but I am winning in that I go, I run (now I run) and I have tricked a bunch of my friends into coming with me and I have made many lifelong friends in the process.
84 races later (as of 9/23/2012) I decided to start a blog. It will be mostly race recaps but I will soon be starting my marathon training...YIKES
I am 215 races down as of 12/31/13.
I am tired of it taking 45min - an hour to get to the running trail in Caumsett.....it is only a couple of miles away but with only 1 way in and rush hour it is not fun to get there. So I decided to hit up a trail that is much closer.....I was not too sure how to get to it but I knew to park in Stop n Shop in Woodbury.....Well I got there fast and got out of my car but I did not see a path anywhere....I crossed the street because I knew heading north was tough trails that head into Stillwell Woods.....I love a run there called Rob's run but I did not have trail shoes on.....well guess what south was not any better. I accidentally ended up on a mountain bike path LOL.
How I did not break an ankle still amazes me.....
I took it slow to not fall and somehow I ended up out on Woodbury Rd. Super busy at 5:30....I ran down and back a bit and of course hit every red light along the way LOL. Got back into the woods and got back to the parking lot at 2.4 miles....after waiting (I am not exaggerating either) 3 minutes for the light to change I just went back and forth in the parking lot until I hit 2.26 to finish my run for Boston.
Not fast and not pretty but I was able to run so I am grateful
Where did you get your Run for Boston done? How did it go? How are you doing emotionally? It has been so crazy......
