1:45 Redemption

As you’ll remember, a few weeks ago, I ran the Vancouver First Half, and put out my lofty goal of hitting 1:45.  I know I have a 1:45 inside of me, but unfortunately this race unraveled for me, and I did not hit my goal.  Side stitch/cramp/burning pain under my rib, whatever you want to call it, it got me.  I did run a PR of 1:46:59, but it wasn’t what I wanted.

So, me being the competitive race junkie I am, signed up for another half.  I felt like the lack of Whole30 approved fuel was a bit part of the equation, so I registered for a half marathon right after finishing my Whole30.  This way, I could have a gel without feeling any guilt.

Turns out, that half is this Saturday just across the line – the Run for the Honeywagon - which apparently is a truck used for collecting/emptying porta-potties.  BARF.  I’m ignoring what Google tells me, and pretending the race is named after a local bee farm, and the Honeywagon is where they collect all their honey!

Once again, I’m putting it out there.  1:45 or bust.  It’s go time!!
