According to 1st Place Sports, this race series is designed to test your ability to run three different races in a twenty-four hour period. Your time in each of the three events is added together to determine your place for the Tour de Pain. I couldn’t decide how to write this recap. Since it was a series of three races so I was going to break it into three, but really it was kind of like one big race since they were run so close together and they all affected each other. I decided to put them all together, so forgive me if this is long!
I feel kind of funny calling this a race recap. There was a race involved, but we didn’t race.. not really.
I’m super late with this race recap and I’d love to say that it’s going to be worth the wait.. but, well, it’s probably not.
This was probably the most fun I’ve ever had at a race. I’ve been really looking forward to the Florida Striders Memorial Day 5K for a few reasons — some friends (Jenn from Runs with Pugs and Devon from The Food Bitch Blog) were running with us, our kids were running the 1-mile fun run, and it was the first race I was running
against with my brother.
I haven’t posted much lately.. maybe you’ve noticed, maybe you haven’t. When the bombings at the Boston Marathon happened, I kind of pulled back from social media and unplugged a bit. I felt like I was attacked in a community where I’ve always felt safe and welcome. I was having a really hard time processing my feelings and figuring out how I felt. I spent a lot of time watching the news, glued to the television for some reason why this happened. I have a hard time with not understanding why.
