Just rode our Official Unofficial Half Marathon route and it is exactly 13.1 Miles . If you haven’t heard... FREE half marathon this Saturday at the Spanish Landing in SD @7:30am. This is a potluck too!!! This is a no frills half... one water station, one Honey Stinger station, no chip timing, no waves, just you and a bunch of people who like to run half marathons and eat afterward. Can’t get much better then that! #unofficialofficial#milestonehalf#runsd#sandiegorunning
Runs with this group are always good. Always. Nothing melts the stress of a hectic day at work quite like being on the trails with the boys and our trail family, @sd_trail_club. Someone needs to work on her night running in a major way... ♀️. An easy 3.5 to run the sun down with headlamps in full effect tonight! #sdtrailclub
Ok guys, sorry to keep you waiting! Here's a little recap of today's Lisbon Marathon! Hot. End of recap. JK
This race was definitely way different from any race I've ever done. First time with no headphones So many different rules that we don't have in the US like You have to wear a shirt while racing! Yeah... It's going to be 90 and you're telling me I can't take my shirt off? We're running by a nude beach! Come on man! I quickly got over it though and ended up having a great race, not because it went smoothly or anything but fighting hard and not giving up made it great. Cramps (again...) started around mile 10 and it got really bad every time we hit the cobblestone parts of the course. I don't know what I'm doing on race day or race week to cause this when I never have cramps in training ♂️ it's really annoying but I guess I'll figure it out when I sign up with a coach soon. Tons of great people on the course from all over the world (Spaniard are LIT ) The hype was real throughout the course, it made not thinking about the heat a little easier. Huge thanks to the 2 runners that helped me get through a couple rough spots, one was from London and the other somewhere in France maybe? I hope you guys had a great finish and it was great meeting you.
Ended up finishing with a 2:59:17, 90th out of around 5k, 1st from the USA ! This race was not easy but it was definitely one I'd come back to.
Alright I'm half asleep and I leave for the U.K. early in the morning, thank you for all the love and support, I really appreciate it guys! Good night! #running#marathontraining#rnrlisbon#run#runner#runsd#nuunlife#runnerscommunity#runnerslife#goals#motivation#sandiegofitness ##sandiegorunners#teamzensah#fitness#fitlife#fitfam#boston2018#bostonbound#nikerunning#runchat#igrunners#26point2#runsocial#sundayrunday#sdtctravels
