Dream Run 2011

On Saturday I ran in the Break The Barriers Dream Run 6 mile race.  If you’d like, you can find last years recap here.

I got there about 15 minutes early.  Just enough time to use the restroom and do some light stretching.  I know it’s bad,  but I never stretch before my training runs.  So if I start crying about an injury, now you can tell me to suck it up buttercup.  

Mike had to work & Lulu was sick, so you get self portraits…


It was chilly so that means perfect running weather in my books.

1 8:00

2 8:20

3 8:31

4 8:31

5 8:30

6 8:01

Official time: 50:18

Garmin time: 50:06


Average pace per mile: 8:19

Last year’s time was 55:29.

I am so happy & proud of my time.  🙂

Yay for meeting new running buddies!

Hi Natalie & Thelma!


They both placed.  Way to go girls!

I was kinda bummed this was the first race not having Mike or my sister there, but it forced me to step out of my bubble & meet some really cool girls.  I’m so happy I did!

There were a few hills but nothing too crazy.  It was pretty organized, unlike last year.  Goody bag included a long sleeve cotton t-shirt, a coupon for a free chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-a, some raisins & some other flyers.  The only thing I wish they would improve on is posting all of the results online.  They only posted the winners.  I’m a looser.  I want to know my stats without having to make a phone call.  Overall for $15 I’ll do this race again next year.

Now you have to be honest, do you stretch before exercise?

    Yep, I was there, too.
    I am older than you, though (52), and a lot slower. 🙂
