Train hard and have a good day!  :)

2012 Athlete Resume

The other day, I ran across an Athlete Resume for a professional triathlete and I thought it looked pretty cool, so I thought I'd have some fun with Photoshop and put together my own.

Running Through February!

Marcy & Haley Running Strong!
I've had a busy, but fun last month or so.


On Feb. 19, I went down to the Austin Marathon to cheer on my good friend Marcy, her husband Steve, and their friends Haley and her husband Kurt.  Marcy did IMTX with me, but this would be her first "Stand Alone" Marathon.

Marcy and Haley ran together.  Kurt, who is a brain cancer survivor, blew through it in 3 hrs and some change and Steve completed his first Half Marathon after having back surgery.  So, there was a lot of great stuff going on and wanted to be there.

I woke up at 4:30am on race morning and drove 5 hours and met them starting at Mile 5 and three more around the course. 
Mmm... Oreos

I was stocked with their favorites:

- Oreos
- Swedish Fish
- Cool Ranch Doritos
- Licorice Nibs

And, I even had a 6-pack of Shiner Beer for Tricia, but unfortunately I missed her!

I had my funny race signs and a cowbell and I cheered my tail off for everyone running by!  I had a blast and was so proud of all of my runners! :)

Haley, Me & Marcy
After the marathon, we dropped Kurt & Haley off, went to FreeBirds! for lunch (Oh My Gosh- that place is delicious!) and then I drove back home another 5 hours.

I have so much respect for spectators!  It's almost a sport in itself trying to figure out paces and find your way around road blocks and traffic to get there on time.

A special thank you to a good friend who helped me out a lot for that!! I think that was almost as hard as running the 26.2,  but it was an awesome day!

Then on February 26, I ran the Cowtown Half Marathon with Lesley from RacingItOff.   Marcy and Steve were back on the run course again doing the half marathon as well, but were taking it easy after their running the weekend before.

Lesley & Me Pre-Race
Lesley had a PR on her mind and I was ready to pace her to that goal.  And, while the race didn't go quite as she wanted it to... she has a much more in-depth Race Report, here...  (and an insight to what a mean drill sergeant I am)

BUT, she came away with a 3:14 PR and was still able to bust out our signature Sprinkler dance moves that we perfected at the New Years Double Marathon while going up a hill!  Bring it!

Checking in on Lesley
The weather was perfect, with a little bit of wind, but after being sick for most of January and February my legs couldn't wait to run. I felt like a racehorse waiting to get out of the gate.

And believe it or not, Lesley and I did not coordinate our purple for this race. But, we look cute together, don't we?

 Now, our matching outfits for the El Scorcho 50k??  That's a different story.  The word, "Rad" comes to mind. Let's just say that there will be Neon Pink Zebra print involved.  :)

I'm yelling "C'mon Lesley! Sprinkler Time"
Whoot! Bust A Move!
