Highlander 8k

Radford, VA | April 29, 2017 | Time: 1:01:43 | Well this race was not my race. As I mentioned in the last post, Krysten stuck with me through this race and was the only reason I got to the finish line!

Sally was also running the race so we took some team shots at the start before lining up for the race. This was the first time this course was being done so it was a pretty small crowd. I knew it wasn’t going to be pretty but thought I’d give it a go. We powered up the first hill and I made it probably half a mile before bringing in walk game. From that moment on we decided just to enjoy being out there, walk up and run down the hills. 

Radford is much hillier than originally thought but we got through it. I have to say it was pretty depressing to not be able to really run at all since I had two killer PRs the previous two weekends. 

Thankfully Krysten grabbed brunch with me afterwards at Radford Coffee Company.  A yummy burrito and a smoothie later I felt better but knew it was going to be awhile before I got to run again. 

Oh well- off to PT and hopefully some solutions!!!
