Rock n Roll Half Marathon - Las Vegas 2018
Ran the @runrocknroll half marathon in Las Vegas last night and I had so much fun running it. Running the strip was so fun and beautiful. I ended up just running this one for fun, because I was constantly stopping and taking pictures on the strip and videos lol. I’ll be posting more pictures of that soon.
Over 40,000 runners and so it was really hard to find people but I did run into a few people from Instagram. Here are some before & after pictures and of course more to come. I am still here in Las Vegas, and so it’s been hard to get everything posted since it’s go go go since I’ve been here. I am ready to go back home tomorrow and relax lol. So great to meet @bamagirlruns @scottinbamaruns @pinkcupcakegirl also last night.

Tulsa Run 5K & 15K Double - 2018
Yesterday morning I did the 5K & 15K Double Race at the Tulsa Run. I had a lot of fun and the weather was perfect. My plan for this race was to just have fun & not push it. I’m still having some issues with my knee/I.T band syndrome but this did not stop me from going out there and doing what I love & having fun. It was so great seeing everyone out there & it was great to see @jenna.runs again. Always love meeting & seeing Instagram running friends. (Scroll across to see all the pics) ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

I’m a little behind on my posts, but here are some pictures from last week. Did the Oktoberfest 5K with the Little ones and had a fun time at the Oktoberfest. Taking it easy with my knee, as I don’t want to re injure it especially with the @route66marathon coming up. .

Half Fanatics Reunion Race - 2018
Sorry I’m just now posting, finally back at home. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to post this because I was embarrassed lol. But I had so many amazing running friends out there yesterday & they made me feel better. So I didn’t have the best of luck at yesterday’s race. I was very upset with myself during the race. But I had to remind myself that I hardly done any running or training in the last 2 months & with some knee issues. After mile 10 my right knee started to bother me from all the down hills & so I started to walk and everything was cramping up so bad. I continued to keep walking & would try to jog off & on. Once I came around & saw the finish line, I started to run towards it and I was so close to the finish line, just a few more steps to go and all of a sudden I fell to the ground. Yes, my big embarrassing moment with everyone watching lol. My left leg cramped and my toes curled up so as I tried to make my final step to cross the the finish line, I fell!
Yes, I did finish & finally crossed the finish line but I wish while I was on the ground, that I had crawled across lol. I wasn’t even thinking about that or that the time was still going 😂 This was the first time that this has happened to me at a finish line.
But I still had a fun time out there with everyone & it’s always great seeing everyone.
After the race while we were having lunch, I had told one of the runners that I wish they took a pic of me falling lol. Back to training tomorrow 👍🏻( I’ll be playing catch up on here also)
