Let me start by saying that when it came to racing, I was somewhat of a slacker in 2018. Looking back at my running log, I only count 6 races I ran this year:
- Sabre Run 5k (done at 38 weeks pregnant)
- Cleveland Marathon 5k (done at 39 weeks pregnant)
- Cleveland Marathon 10k (done 4 days before LM was born)
- Edgewater Sunset 5k
- Nature Center 5k (done with a stroller)
- Cleveland Turkey Trot
Do I have a reason? Well, yes, I suppose this little lady being born in May may have affected my running and racing:
So when I saw the topic for this week’s Tuesdays on the Run linkup was 2018 race bling, I realized I only had 4 medals to share.
And my favorite bling of the year? Definitely the medals from the Cleveland Marathon Challenge Series. Not just because of the fact that you get 3 medals for doing 2 races, but because I feel so proud of the fact that I was able to still run (err walk and hobble) the 2 races just 4 days before my due date. It was hard at the time, but I’ll always be proud of that accomplishment.
I’m not quite back in pre-baby running shape, so who knows what 2019 will hold for me.
And don’t forget, I am a Cleveland Marathon race ambassador, which means I have a 10% discount code off that you can use! You can sign up for any of the events – 5k, 8k, 10k, half, full, etc. – and you get 10% off with the code MC2019.
