Riverbank this year was supposed to get me a PR, but well, as we know with many races it always doesn't work out quite that way.
When I say this was the worse race of my life, I MEAN it. I was going to PR the thing until after mile 4 and that's when it took a turn for the worse! I lost my cookies at Mile 4, Mile 6 and Mile 10.
Each mile losing my breakfast and the meals from the previous day, made me lose more time, which made me feel more frustrated that I was losing my PR.
Slowly, my hip was hurting causing great pain.
And I just wanted to be done at mile 8, but I knew I had bling waiting and family, so I just kept on trekking along.
When running gets tough, you get tougher and give it everything you got to finish and that's what I did! Despite the pain, the throwing up and rain, I was going to run that 15.5 miles and earn my medals, no matter what time!
Honestly, running a marathon was tough, but this was the hardest race yet! My body had nothing in it and was keeping nothing it.
I am super proud of these medals and the races that I ran to get the Gazelle girl and Riverbank! Even though this race was awful, I'm so glad I stuck it out, dug deep and finished!
