Bull City Race Fest 10/20/13

Sunday I ran in the Bull City Race Fest, with about 6,000 other runners. IT was a super early day, race began at 7:30 and we live a good hour away so we were all up by 5:30. I ran the 5 miler and by the time I hit the 5 Mile mark I was really wishing I had signed up for the half marathon. I am certain I could have done it. But that's OK I will keep training and run my first half in a month as planned :) It was absolutely my favorite race so far. There were a lot of people there so at the beginning it was challenging to get around the slower runners and spread out to where it was not so congested. But by about the half way mark I was with a pack about my speed and just chugging right along.

I am so grateful my family came out to cheer me on and support me. My Hubby and daughter were there as well as my Dad and Step mom.
It was a great way to start the day.


  1. I loved seeing this! I am having lap band next week and one of my goals is to start running :)

  2. Hey Lora, you can SO do it.. I would just suggest start slow so you avoid injury.. I loved the C25K program! Congrats on your upcoming surgry. Keep me posted on how you are doing :)
