Throwback Thursday – Signing up for my PR race
This week’s Timehop app brought up the following picture and I thought it would be perfect for Throwback Thursday.
(I usually do TBT posts only on Instagram, but since I’m writing for NaBloPoMo November, I might as well write a short post about it.)
3 years ago, on November 13th, just a month after finishing my first marathon at Chicago, I signed up for the New Orleans RnR Marathon.
I never thought that Chicago would be my one and done marathon, but I didn’t think I would sign up for another one so quickly either.
But after sort of mentally collapsing at Chicago, I had a lot of prove to myself. NOLA was going to be my race. My race that I ran without any outside assistance. So that meant, no facebook/texts that had gotten me through Chicago.
I signed up to show myself that I was strong.
And the rest, as they say it, is history, with a picture perfect marathon training season and perfect execution on race day for a still standing PR.
