Gasparilla 8k race recap - First race of 2014

To learn more about Isagenix and how to make your own health and wealth transformation please click on my website below.

Happy Monday peeps!! Well it's been a long road back to running and I'm still not out of the water just yet but I'm making strides and this weekend I completed my first race back the Gasparilla 8k. Yea!! :)
The Gasparilla is our signature event for the running community here in the Tampa Bay area and it consists of 4 races; A 5k, 8k, 15k, and Half marathon. Some people actually do all four races. So here is my weekend race recap...

This year I ran the 8k on Sunday and Amy and Matthew ran the 5k on Saturday. Friday I hit up the 8 on your side Health and Fitness Expo. Grabbed a bunch of goodies for myself, Amy and Matthew. 

Saturday morning Yaniece and I met up with Amy and Matthew to head down for the start of the 5k. Here are some pics before the race.

The time is NOW... :)

Matthew did great and wanted to run some more. Matthew finished in 43:15 and Amy in 43:18.   Here are some pics after the race.

Sunday morning Yaniece and I met back up with Amy and Matthew for my race. Here's me getting me E+ Energy shot in before the race. Gotta have it!!

All in all the race went great. My knee has been feeling great but once I started to run again I strained my calf so I've been nursing my calf lately.  I decided to run 2 miles and then walk 1 mile to not aggravate the calf too much and it was a good strategy for me. I enjoyed the race and didn't slow down my healing process. Finished in 1:03:01. Not fast for me by any means but it was great to just get out there and run in a race. I'm sticking with my commitment to myself to enjoy racing this year. Technically speaking though, this is a PR because I've never run an 8k before... lolol

So now it's time to figure out what my next race will be???  

How about you?? Did you race this weekend?? How did you do??

Weekend recap - A whole lotta stuff going on

This weekend was a busy one. We laid to rest my Uncle Alvin Young. It was beautiful Home going celebration and it was nice to see all of my Family and friends out. We celebrated his life and sang and rejoiced. Love you Unc!! This isn't goodbye, but we will see you soon... :)

In addition Saturday I ran two miles with Amy. This was nice because we haven't done this in a while. It was lot fun. 2 miles at about  12 minute pace but it felt good and there was no pain. Also we finally got the bike rack put on my car. Dena is loving it!!

I'm really starting to feel like myself again. I bike 12 miles this morning and then ran 2 off the bike at a 9:25 pace.Washed my workout down with a delicious Chocolate Isalean shake. Yea!! :)   Knee is feeling good and I'm excited about ramping up the training as I continue to heal.



Sunday was Church and I got to reconnect with a truly inspirational person. Lauren Lane Powell is a speaker, author, workshop facilitator and musician. She came to visit my Church, Unity North Tampa on Sunday and she gave the most amazing and inspirational talk on how she survived a bout with Ovarian Cancer. I am sure that her motivational story will help others who are going through a similar circumstance. In addition I got the chance to play a couple of songs with her as well which was a ton of fun. Enjoy and you can check out Lauren's work at www.harmoniesofhealing.com.
