Madison Social 5k Trough Run

Sunday, November 17, 2013 0 comments
Today was the Madison Social 5k Trough Run. I woke up dreading this run for some reason. I just think I was very tired before the race and was not wanting to do much exercise today. I am so glad that I did this race though. I was having some anxiety about the race because I never saw the route before hand so the first time I heard about it was at the start line.

I am happy to say that I did my best mile so far at 13:33 and I was so happy with that I didn't care if I was coming in last place. 

Happiness for getting a PR 


One thing that upset me a little bit about this race was that is was only 2.75 miles. That isn't anywhere close to a 5k and I was hoping to get an actual 5k in today. I am so happy to be apart of such a great running community though. The MRTT Mom's are great. I love seeing them at every race. I don't get the chance to run with this during the week any longer. 

Races completed: 12
Races to go: 1

Marathon Challenge on PBS

I just watched this film and it is truly inspiring to see that 12 novice runners can finish a full marathon. This makes me want to kick up my training a notch and really get some miles behind me. I do have a dream of running a marathon, maybe not the Boston Marathon but I would love to one day do one. I have done a half marathon.

Getting Organized

I have been getting all my race stuff together since I started this whole race journey. I saved all my bibs and have all my official times written down. I just found these things by Becky Huggins called Project Life which has made my life so much simpler. I am able to buy the page protecters for my pictures, then I decide which core kit to use and viola, I put everything in a binder. It is perfection for my crazy life right now. I will never be able to sit down and actually scrapbook like some people so this is perfect for me.
The Honey Edition Core Kit
I cannot wait to finish putting my binder together and have it be presentable. I know I will constantly fill it up with races as I continue to run them. I will show you an update on the album once I finish the year out.
