Your not trying till your chafing

Today I ran 6 miles, which is officially my longest run since the California Classic in May 2011.

In a nutshell it was long & slow and I stopped a few times.  At 2.81 miles I was ready to head home.  As I ran in that direction my stomach suddenly started to feel better.  Who knew!

I’ll throw in my splits for giggles this time.

APPM: 9:43


Which put’s me at around a 2:06 half marathon.  Not too bad, but I’m up bringing the hurt on so we’ll see.

Do you like to hurt as much as I do?  It’s a sickness I tell ya.

Speaking of, I have this lovely battle wound on my rib cage from my sports bra.

Guess I didn’t use enough Body Glide.  It felt great in the warm shower.  Ha!


Oh, in other exciting news, I signed up for the Mermaid Duathlon.


It’s a 1.5 mile run, 12 mile hilly bike ride & 2.5 mile run.  Finishing on the beach.  My kind of party right there.

Plus you know I’ll do almost anything for a schweet hoodie & medal.


I want to know:

If you run or cycle what is your distance PR?

Have you ever done a Tri or Du?

This is my first one.

  1. Nice Job on sticking through the run even though you didn’t feel the best:) That mermaid duathlon looks so fun. I’m jealous of the hoodie…I want one. I did do my first triathlon this past summer. The swim scared me, but I really liked the biking. I think I’ll have to give it another go sometime.
