Mississippi Blues 2016

Well, I finished it. Second half of the weekend and the #back2backhalfs are done. Ouch. I hurt. Everywhere. I think that even my eyelashes hurt. It was cold and windy but very flat thank the good Lord!! My hamstrings and feet hurt so bad I had to take several stretch breaks so my time wasn’t near as good as yesterday and that’s ok because I’m feeling every single second of my 41 years today. #old #msbluesmarathon #firstlightmarathon #back2backchallenge #ouch #ihurtsobad #whatwasithinking #halffanatics #thankGoditsdone #neveragain #imtoooldforthis #fitness #10thhalf #wls #wlsrunner

Well, I wasn’t able to take much of a nap (danged Walgreens). So, I’ll stay up until bedtime to get some good sleep (hopefully). I was able to make a better pace with this run and shave 17 minutes off from my last half. It’s encouraging that I’m getting some speed back but I know that temperatures REALLLY affect pace. My sub-2 half was wet and cold as was this one….kind of a frightening pattern 😂 Kinda seems like I just want to get those kinds of runs done! This was was hilllllayyyy. For real!! My whole entire backside is STILL screaming at me. I told the other runners that I was naming one particularly hard hill the butt buster…they agreed it suited the hill. Tomorrow is the second 13.1 for my #back2backhalfs and it is thankfully flat as a pancake!! Guess we will see what time I can manage though in not going to beat myself up if I’m very slow. I was also able to be some fellow #halffanatics at the race and have a picture done! That was awesome!! Tomorrow, I will get to see a lot of friends and am looking forward to it though I will definitely miss the ones that are unable to make it. The bling from this race was awesome as you could see in the last post and we also received a BB King CD along with a harmonica!! I’d definitely do this one again! What did y’all do today? Run? Rest? Anyone doing #firstlightmarathon tomorrow?! #msbluesmarathon #fitness #marathontraining #wls #wlsrunner #run #instagramrunners #runnersofinstagram #rnrnola #rocknrollnola #runrocknrollnola
