This past year has been a little rough on the running side of things. An ankle sprain, bout of mono, and a foot injury resulted in a 5 month break from racing (and any runs over about 3 miles).
Finally got to get out on the trails and RACE last weekend – had an amazing time on the single-track, met a new running buddy, and placed pretty decently considering the race represented about half of my weekly mileage ha ha 😉
First speed workout coming on Monday – can’t wait!
Also, just started reading Amanda’s blog over at http://www.steeplecreeper.com – she’s quite a bit faster than me, but coincidentally also had mono this winter. Checking out her recent racing success was a great inspiration to get back out there and see what I can do in upcoming summer races 🙂
