Tiger Dash and Cub Run

This morning I went to the Tiger Dash and Cub Run in Stockton. This was my very first time driving to a race by myself. Not too long after I got there though my friends Eric and Lisa were there and then my brother Joe, my sister in law Maegen and her dad Charlie and of course my niece Adrian showed up too. Adrian was signed up for the cub run! It started at 8 and she was so cute running. She was a tad disappointed that they did not have any medals for the kids when it was over but I think the donut holes helped her get over it ;)


My brother Joe and her Grandpa Charly running with her 


All done!


Eric was just far enough ahead of me that I could see him almost the whole time. Something about having him running up there ahead of me keeps me focused. Good thing he wears super bright shirts!


This was Lisa's first 5k! She did really good!

Megs and her dad ran together


I love that they all came out and ran! It's a cool feeling (and kind of crazy!) to know that all these people run now because I started running. 


I got a new PR today! My Runkeeper didn't start when I first pushed it so my stats are a little bit off but their clock said under 29 minutes when I came in.


It was a pretty small race so they did not have chip timing. They only did awards for the top 3 men and top 3 women overall. I'm not sure if they will post the times anywhere online. BUT I know that it was a little bit faster than my last 5k so I'm totally stoked! I never ever thought I'd be running this fast.


Check out the map. We basically just looped all around the college campus (University of the Pacific aka UOP). I wish it would have been more of out on the roads because there was a lot of going up and down curbs and that makes me nervous that I'm going to hurt myself. It is a pretty campus though!

After the run I went over to my mom's and let them laugh at my pants and then my mom took me out to lunch. I probably should have brought some other pants to change into but I forgot haha. I gave everyone something fun to look at I guess :)

My next run I'm signed up for is my half! I MIGHT sneak another one in there though if I get up the guts and have the money. MAYBE. 

Did you run today? How did you do?

Congrats on your PR..

I'm running a 4 mile Halloween run next Saturday.

This morning I ran my 8 miles.. and managed to run 51 miles for the week. That's the most I've ran since... I don't know when????


How many miles do you run per day? Week? And how's your half marathon training going? Are you ready???
