I did it! I ran my first race of the season. My body has changed tremendously since having children but I’m determined to get it in tip-top shape…or at the very least, get used to it again. This time I signed up for the Lucky 7 Run in Davis, California.
My first run after having Maxim was born was the Nike Women’s Half in 2013. My average pace was 18:00 per mile. Yes, awful from what it was. But I can only improve from there, right?
5 months later, my average pace for the Lucky 7 Run was 15:44. Still slow, but a vast improvement indeed! I’m happy to be moving. I’m determined to get stronger and faster in 2014! The city of Davis, California is one of my favorite running cities. It’s relatively fat (no San Francisco Hills here!) and it’s really pretty. I love seeing the different neighborhoods of this college town. The city has a beautiful green belt with walking/bike trails that make it easy to visit the city.
