Race Day Slumber Party (with a baby)


I’m back at the office today, but my heart is somewhere on a boat with that sweet little first mate and her daddy. ❤️ @jonussery and I are running the Atlanta Peachtree Road Race 10k tomorrow, so I kept my workout at 30 minutes on the bike today to break a sweat. 💦 I’m sure there will be plenty of sweating tomorrow as we race the hills of Atlanta in July! 😂🇺🇲 Happy Monday! #charterboat #hiltonheadisland #21monthsold #perfection #firstmate #peachtreeroadrace #10k #spinbike #crosstraining #motherrunner #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunning #workingmom

Tomorrow is our 10k!  And the Fourth of July! Haha. Jon and I are both running, so we will spend the night with my parents so they can watch Cadence in the morning after we leave for the race. They live 40 minutes from our house in the opposite direction of the race, but we did this last year, and it worked out fine. I’m so thankful to live close enough to parents for the help!

My calf feels a little tight from all of the running in Hilton Head, but my shins don’t hurt anymore. If I don’t feel like I’m injuring myself, I plan to try for a fast race. It’s been a while since I ran a shorter distance, so this will be fun (and hot!)!

Here’s a neat survey of the Western States 100 participants and their gear, experience, etc. Given my newly semi-coachless status, I found it interesting that only 24% of participants had a coach to train for WS.  🙂


Nana is the best for naps. ❤

What are your plans for the Fourth?
