Weekend review: Race day

As part of my 2013 goals, I was determined to prove to myself (and others) that I had a working knee. I mean, I knew I did, but I wanted a race under my belt to really show that I could do it…I could run! So last Saturday, I participated in the Lozilu 5K, a women’s only mud run.

Despite a few negative Nancy’s (on my team) bailing last minute and having to wait 20+ minutes to hop over/under/through some of the obstacles, I officially completed the race. It certainly wasn’t the most brilliant race I’ve ever run and the lack of organization tried my patience to no end, but a few unexpected laughs made the day at least a little bit fun.

I randomly bumped into one of the girls I play camogie with and we ended up combining our teams and running together which, in truth, made it a lot more fun than it would have been. She had a water/shock-proof camera and took loads of pics throughout the race, but I haven’t had a chance to snag them off her, so here’s one I pinched from the official race site – pre-mud, of course.

So, yes, that’s officially another item crossed off the goal list. It wasn’t pretty, but it’s been done.
