Are we having fun yet??

Race Three is in the books!  It was another tough one at a local golf course, which really just means one hill after another.  :)  I haven't run this one since 2006 and I have to admit I remember it being somewhat easier.  However, I was only a little slower 6 years later.  That gives me hope. 

The rain cleared and the conditions were better than I expected. I did leave my fancy new kicks at home for this one...wouldn't want to get them muddy!  I am looking forward to some road races that take place on an actual road at some point...but for now here is a photo of me crossing the grassy finish line!  I got out, saw lots of great people, got my workout in, and raised money for a great cause!  I have to admit that 3 days later as I type this, my legs are still hurting from all of those hills!  :0

Finally at the finish!

The Hills of March

I'm guilty of not blogging in a bit.  Apparently, January, February, and March are not busy race months.  :)  We have had such a mild and snow free winter that I have run more this winter than any other.  Sick kiddos got in the way of running for a few weeks, but I am back on track.  I am finding some ways to be more consistent with my running. 

Race number three is coming up on Sunday.  It's the Olde Salem Greens Cross Country Race.  Loosely translated...hills.  I did this race a few years ago and it was tough.  Mile two is at the end of the course, but you have to do another loop for the 3rd mile.  I remember thinking I was done...but really had a mile to...or this race could be harder than I remember.  Time will tell!!
