I’m excited to share that I’ve once again been selected as an ambassador for the Cleveland Marathon!
Race weekend is back in May with the 5k, 10k, half and full marathon. I’m so excited to be back running races IN-PERSON and in the spring again!
I haven’t started training yet, and life is a little crazier these days with a newish baby and a new job, but the Challenge Series (running Saturday and Sunday) is my favorite and calling my name again! I’ll probably be aiming for the 5k/Half challenge. As part of my ambassadorship, I get a discount code – so feel free to use MCCARNSAVE10 for 10% off registration. And stay tuned for a race entry giveaway coming soon!
Last year was the first year I didn’t run the Challenge Series. At less than 3 months postpartum, and only having started running again for a few weeks, I didn’t have enough time to train for the half marathon. I’m hopeful that this year will let me get in some longer runs and get back into running shape!
In the meantime, here’s how the week went running wise:
Sunday: 4 miles outside! and then a walk with the family
Monday: 4.04 miles outside!
Tuesday: 4.5 miles treadmill
Wednesday: 5 treadmill miles
Thursday: 5.1 treadmill miles
Friday: 4 treadmill miles
Saturday: Rest day – No running, took a 4 mile walk outside instead
I got in TWO outdoor runs, the first time in a while! I went on a run with my brother when he was visiting from Germany, and it was great. Well, not the weather or conditions – it was cold, slippery and icy but the conversation was great at least. It was the first time I had run with someone in several months, and that also made the time go fast.
Sunday it actually got warmish – so I was able to run in capris, and then take a not-so-frigid walk with the family.
Some questions for you:
- Do you have any upcoming races?
- Have you been running outside lately?
