This past weekend I finished my spring racing cycle with one of my favorite races, the Lilac Bloomsday 12k in Spokane, Washington. This was my second time running it. I would put this race on a must-do list for any runner. Spokane is beautiful, the course requires a strategic approach which makes it fun, and the volunteers are the friendliest. Just a top-notch event all around!
I think I may have dug myself into a little hole this spring and went in to the race a bit more tired than I thought. Race morning I felt awesome and confident but my body was fighting any kind of fast running. It happens! Results here. I It was a great weekend and I was able to hang out with some pretty awesome ladies. Big thanks to Bloomsday and Jon Neill for having me!
Up next will be enjoying some time in San Diego before heading up to the mountains for some altitude training for the summer. I will be targeting a fall marathon, yay!
