1. My running has been going really well this week. I ran four miles on Tuesday with my dad and we finished in 35:17, with the last mile clocking in at 8:34. We weren’t planning on going that fast and I was worried about what it would do to my mile repeats on Wednesday. Much to my surprise, I rocked them: 8:03, 8:05, and 7:56. (Hal Higdon said I should run them at HM race pace, but where’s the speed work in that?)
2. Today we are taking the boys to the Dodge County Fair. From what I’ve heard, you can get just about any food you can think of fried or on a stick. Surprisingly, Wisconsin barely makes the top 25 in “fattest states” with 60% of its residents overweight or obese. It’s a good thing I’ll be balancing my fried cheese curds with lots of running and about 10 servings of vegetables fresh from my mom’s garden.
3. On your mark, get set, go… I’ve seen a couple of posts and mentions of people running the Mama Goes Masters virtual race. I’m entirely too flaky to keep track of what I’ve seen, so make sure you either email your results to me at mom2shoo at gmail.com or leave me a comment on a post. I need to know how far you ran (4, 8.25, or 40k, you may do more than one), your time, and a link to a race report if you write one. I’ll continue to gather them all and do a mega post around August 27th and announce all the winners.
