The Roundup + A Last Chance Pretty Muddy Giveaway! (closed)

This giveaway is closed

Yesterday’s event was awesome in every way – it definitely motivated me to keep going and never quit on my training journey & that there are NO excuses!

So, this morning I enjoyed a lovely recovery run with Kris – it’s her birthday today – and we shook out in 4 miles what made us stiff from the 13 we did yesterday πŸ˜‰

Today I also think about my pal Gina, who is also celebrating a birthday AND running the Marine Corp Marathon along with my cousin J! So much awesome racing going on today – keep away Sandy!

This week in workouts was one of PRs and faster paces thanks to cooler weather and amped-up training!

Feel free to grab a button and Link up! You don’t have to necessarily do it on Sunday; just whenever you look at your week’s workouts with in the week πŸ˜‰


Monday was a PR for 5 miles. Thursday was a PR for 6 miles. Saturday was a PR for 13 miles.
Am I ready for race season?? Heck YES!! πŸ˜‰
ο»ΏAlong with the Women’s Half (remember to use code KATSNF for $10 off registration!) being 3 weeks away, Pretty Muddy is officially 2 weeks away and I have to admit I’m going to be so super careful and am terrified of my first mud race pretty excited for this race! I plan to stay committed to this set of rules:
  • Don’t be a competitor: I have a tendency to always race when there’s a ‘race’ so that I can always do my very best – duh. That will not be happening at Pretty Muddy. Not!
  • Watch where my feet go: I’m not sure if there is a medical term for the condition I like to call “Loose Ankle” that I suffer from am a hypochondriac about, but I would like to remember to keep an eye on my landing so that I don’t slip or twist anything, I can’t afford that a week out
  • from the Women’s Half!
  • Frolick: I want to frolick…it will make for awesome photography
  • Don’t be a priss: There’s going to be mud, I have to not care that I’ll get super dirty. It will make me happy to offer free hugs after the fact, so that’s always an added bonus.
  • Have Fun! That’s the key to this event, HAVE FUN! It’s all in good, dirty, fun πŸ˜‰
This Weekly Workouts Roundup has been a great one! My pace has stepped it up and I am ready for this cold (or semi-cold) race season, bring it!

    I really want to try a mud run, but am afraid to try for various reasons. This seems like the perfect opportunity to get out there and give it go!

    Awesome week for you, girl! And I couldn’t agree more about Pretty Muddy – I did the race in Chicago a few months ago and it was all about fun!

    I love you commentary on your mud run goals. I feel like as races we have to put PRs aside at mud runs and color runs and just have fun acting like idiots.

    Nice Job this week Kat! I love the helpful hints you are giving. A quick note on your foot placement; don’t worry so much on your landing than the impact. Raise your cadence and your knees a little while you run, so your feet do not spend as much time on the ground in turn reduces the impact. Just a suggestion.
