I have big news!
The Yuengling Shamrock Half Marathon was amazing. It goes down in history as my favorite race yet, from start to finish.
And the success I had is only part of all the love I’m giving this race.
P.S. …My medal is a bottle opener.
However, I’m going to wait to share my big news for when I have all the pictures to share with you all. My camera is still en route to me, and Anastasia took all of the pictures on her camera.
SO… a full race recap, including our times, will materialize tomorrow. Get excited!
Preview: I have never been so, so spent at a finish line in my entire life. And I came in 16th in my age group!!
In the meantime, I’m going to nurse my sore muscles and my [almost lack of] second left toenail. I didn’t realize it until I took my sneakers off around 5 p.m. yesterday, but I truly ran my toesies off. Sick, I know.
I’ll spare you of the gory visual (I really hate feed and will avoid them/talking about them whenever possible), but trust me, my toe is purple. And it hurts when anything touches it.
Dear mother nature, will you pretty please give me some really warm weather for a while so I can keep wearing flip flops everywhere?
So… I’m now calling all you runner’s toe pros. Anything I should do for this baby to make it feel better?
Other than get lots of loving kisses from my baby, that is.
Check back tomorrow for a full race recap!
I have to add a HUGE thank you to all of my loving friends who commented, send messages, and commented to cheer me on. It made me feel so loved!
What did you do this weekend? Have you ever experienced “runner’s toenail” before? Ewww, I know.
