This past weekend, Finn and I traveled down to St Peterburg, Florida to run the Rock n Roll Half Marathon. While Finn’s plans got derailed by a car accident 3 weeks or so ago, we still had a fun trip!
On Saturday, I met up with new friend, Julie who blogs over at La Petite Maison Verte. Which means for all of us who took the easy way in high school, aka Spanish class… The Little Green House in French! Oh la la! Julia is so nice and refreshing. Check out her clean recipes and musings.
Sunday morning was FREEZING! Like 35 degrees and snotsicle cold. Thank goodness I packed gloves and ear warmers. Next time I am going to make Finn be my personal nose warmer.
I ended up not taking a lot of photos on the course, because I was trying really hard to PR and beat my 2:45 time from Charleston. I set out and kept under 12 min/miles. Which according to my handy dandy pace calculator is 2:37.12. I kept this until mile 9.
Then the knee pain came back. I have been having this over the top, towards the inner knee pain occasionally on long runs but usually I can push through. I pushed until mile 11…. then this happened–
Hope everyone is having a great day! I am off to Chops Lobster Bar… I hear their seafood selection is flown in fresh daily!
