It’s race day! The race starts at 6 today so it is probably over by the time you are reading this:). It has been so hot here lately that a lot of people have not had power. I am very grateful that the race will be early to avoid the heat because it does cool down here at night and it will be nice and cool at 6.
Ended up doing three miles then stopped and walked the rest of the way home (@ 8:53 pace).
During my run I was thinking about how it takes just as much effort to visualize an amazing race with a strong finish as it does to picture a bad race happening. Why in the world do we even spend an ounce of our energy thinking a race is going to go poorly or that we won’t hit our goals when it is just as easy to think about us hitting our goals. —> Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right- Henry Ford.
I spent time yesterday picturing me crossing the finish line strong and controlled… not going to waste any energy worrying/thinking about finishing any other way.
I’m not going to skip the struggle today by slowing down.
I spent a lot of time working on my legs while playing pretend with Brooke. The legs are officially ready to go now.
We hit up the splash pad of course…
And continued our search for the best ice cream in the area.
Bruester’s gives kids under 40 inches free ice cream so they win in her eyes.
My ice cream was good but not very creamy so I’ll continue searching (if you live in Utah, Brooker’s is my current #1).
Fast forward to evening time and I went up to Salt Lake for the race expo and to sleep up there with my running friends.
I was very excited to meet Sarah Sellers at the expo!
Next up we went to grab some sandwiches.
Meanwhile Brooke, Andrew and Skye had a Panda Express picnic:)
And mowed the lawn!.
TIME TO GO!!!
Fill me in on what is on going on in your life?!
