The Detoured Road to 180 …

Sigh. With the news this past week that I will have to drop the Sun Half Marathon and Jackpot Running Festival because of my ankle, I decided to reconfigure my race schedule. Is it too early for that? Maybe. Well, okay, yes it is.

RACE RECAP #89: West Mountain Half Marathon

It’s funny the difference missing a few things can make in a race. On Friday I took my gym bag to work with me, but forgot to take it home. It just completely slipped my mind. I had my Garmin, Imodium, my gels, salt tablets and my lucky hat. All crucial to my running, especially that lucky hat. Well, okay, more like the Garmin. I haven’t raced without in a Garmin … since … well ……
