A couple weeks ago I tackled my first trail race in ages. My first 5K was a trail race and I often ran or walked in the woods when living with my parents, but I never trail run anymore! I have been eyeballing this race since I moved nearby and I'm so glad I finally made it!
Vulcan's Fury: Highly Recommend
This race is within Pawtuckaway State Park, running on sections of single track trails, sections of larger trail, and a short distance of paved road. There are lots of ups and downs, roots, rocks, and sometimes...BEES!
Monthly meet up - Month 2! This one doubled as a meet up and a fundraising event for CCFA and it was SO FUN! We had a small private aerial yoga class at Kama Fitness where we got to do inversions and the poses I think are really fun! We were all having a great time and were all a little bit daring, so we just kept moving on to better and better stuff :)
Half marathon #3 is complete! First Rock N Roll race, check! This check-in is like a month post-race... I wasn't really feeling like blogging after the race. I felt more like race shopping like a crazy person :-P More on that next race later...
Heading into this race weekend I was really not looking forward to the actual RACE part of it at all. I knew I (once again) hadn't trained properly and thought it was going to be a painful 13.1 miles. BUT I signed up, I had done all of my fundraising for CCFA, I was flying to Louisiana and I was running it!
My game plan heading south was to enjoy exploring New Orleans with my teammates, go visit Villalobos Rescue Center to volunteer to walk the dogs and pace myself slower than my past half marathons so I wouldn't run out of juice by Mile 10.
Hi, I'm Jessie!
I live in NH with my husband and our pups. My favorite things are coaching Girls on the Run, eating good food that I didn't have to cook, helping other people work on their health, volunteering for and running races, watching tv, doing yoga, and spending too much time on social media. #Balance
