I finished that race 8th overall female and there were 400 runners that day! I am beyond proud of the amazing progress I have made just in the last four months or so with my running. Sometimes in my head I am still the 280 pound girl who can barely run for 30 seconds and then I bust out these stats and remember how much I have changed. That race was in Tyler, so afterwards we hit up Brookshires Fresh and had lunch and bought some whole30 items.
To start out October I ran my very first 10k and my goal was to finish in under and hour. I got in at 58 minutes and medaled as the third place female!
I am also on day 81 of my Whole130 days. I have officially decided that I am going to do Whole30 until my Half Marathon and then splurge on a post marathon brunch. My body works so much better when I eat real food. This is just how I plan to eat for the rest of my life. I am basically paleo/whole30 forever, but I will occasionally eat non compliant and to celebrate my half marathon I am eating waffles.
|Pecan crusted salmon, roasted sweet potatoes, and green beans|
|Cooked coleslaw with mustard and sesame oil plus crispy roasted okra|
|Cinnamon roasted apples|
|Epic bar and banana to the rescue when you don't have anything prepped for breakfast|
|Chorizo eggs, baked plantains and jalapeños, and strawberries|
|Turnip greens, roasted potatoes, and yummy coconut milk spiced pork chops|
This month my plan is to shave time off my mile, run 9 miles straight, and run a total of 80 miles for the month. My next race is November 19th in Fort Worth for the Pumpkin Spice 15k and I am SUPER excited. Hopefully by the time race day gets here I will be ready to kick butt and surprise myself again.
