Day 3 means Work it! Join me on Instagram for the #HOLIDAYADAY Challenge!
So, we all know the mission is still to complete 6 halfs in 6 months - Half Fanatic here I come! I've posted about my change in plans since I decided on playing it smart, last minute, I changed my mind to give me 3 instead of 2 weeks between the Women's Half and my December Half. That initial second half was to be the Brandon Half, but is now the Holiday Halfathon! The Brandon Half was put on by my local running group Sunday, the Brandon Running Association - sidenote: these guys are the most supportive group of peeps ever who run with me regularly!
Living close to the course, Hubs and I created a Cheer/Water station to see my peeps do their thang and push them as best we could. Pre-race, after our Saturday long run, I received requests of gels and snacks (pop tarts?) that my running buds wanted on the route. I did my best to deliver. Here's some photo collages of an awesome day!
You can remember Kris as my run angel a.k.a. pacer for the Women's Half who's also a great friend of mine. I couldn't hang with her on this day though....she was shooting for a half PR! I cheered her on the course...along with Beks, her bf Mike, Brad, Brandon Running buds alike...and we drove to the finish so I could run her in....she got about a 2 minute PR! Super proud of this girl!
Sorry pop tart/Caribbean Steve, I cut your head off. I kept it gangsta with Brad..and Tim borrowed by headband.
I had a blast yelling...cheering...seeing my pals kick butt on a hot....around 71 at the finish..day!
I'm flying to lovely Chicago today!
Have you enjoyed spectating a race vs running one yet?Any Chicago recommendations?
