Will Run for Beer

Next Friday, I will be running in the Oldsmar Tap House 5K.  My 5K time has been slowly improving with today’s run being the fastest yet.  Have I mentioned that the first 30 finishers for the 5K get “das boot”?  Now, you know why I am so motivated to run fast these days! 



Before this morning’s run, I felt very light-headed and dizzy, which I know is allergy related.  I haven’t popped a Zyrtec in a while and I ran out of Nasacort some time last week.    Despite the dizziness, I still ran pretty well.

Distance: 3.0

Time: 27:17

Pace: 9:06


While running this morning, I crossed paths with another running neighbor who told me about a running club that meets at Starkey Park early Saturday mornings.  She told me that they really help keep her driven and focused.  I think I will check it out this Saturday.


For the past couple of Saturdays, I have been running 3 miles and swimming ¼ mile to train for the Faces of Courage triathlon in August (formerly known as Babes and Bums).  My swim time was terrible, but my run time was pretty good.

Distance: 3.26

Time: 30:01

Pace:  9:12

However, I haven’t hopped on my bike yet due to scheduling conflicts with my hubby’s work schedule.  Once our schedules jives, I’ll be spinning my wheels again.


So, if I meet with the running club this Saturday, I may be switching my long Sunday run to Saturdays and my triathlon training (swim and run) to Sundays.  Unfortunately, I still don’t know what day I will be cycling.

  2. If you want to keep your long run day on Sunday, there is a group of us girls who meet at Starkey each week. A few are triathletes. Email me if that might work better for you!
