Summer Running…

September 5, 2021

Lots of running oh my

The summer has been full of running, including my one and only trail race. I started out the month of June running the Junebug 5K at Frank Lisk Park, a dirt track/gravel in parts trail. I finished that race 2nd in my age group (30:34), July brought on the Run The Greenway in Salisbury, this was the same course as the Bare Bones 5K, I finished this one in 3rd in my age group (29:15).

August brought 2 races, including the for mentioned trail race, the Mystic Mayham at Lake Norman. A 5.5 mile course, that I tried to keep a slow trot the whole time. I only came close to falling twice, a little trip on a root and that was it. I may have went another loop, but i had to go car shopping since I had a kid run a stop sign at Walmart and wrecked my car, his insurance decided to total it, so i found me a 2019 Honda HR-V, and it so awesome to have a car that i feel like needs to go in the shop at least once a month.

Race 2 was the Mt Pleasant High School Booster 5K, Daniel and I went to this race is style as the rental i got for the wreck was a 2020 Mustang Convertible. It was so much fun to drive, Connie wanted to keep it, but there wasn’t anyway to float 2 car payments. So back to the race, I finished 7th out of 10, I even tied my personal record of 26:50, not to bad considering it was hotter than 40 hells.

September brought the furtherest away 5K i’ve ever done, the Cochecho Challenge 5K in Dover New Hampshire, there were 46 runners in the race as this was a combo event with a 1/2 Marathon. After I weaved my way through the crowd, i started picking off other runners, including my race bitch. I finished the race in 13th overall, 8th in the mens and 1st in my age group (40-49), I beat my PR by almost a minute (25:56)

Now to get ready to start training for the Huntersville 1/2 Marathon. I’ll be sprinkling in a few 5Ks throughout the rest of year.

On a final note, I finally crossed over to the 180 pounds lost since I started all this back in September 2019.
