Railroad Days 5k

Seriously slapping this on here then heading out the door.

I raced this morning here in Galesburg for the annual Railroad Days 5/10k.  I chose the 5k option.  I have done this race several times before.  It used to be an evening race then got moved to a morning race.  I felt ok.  Not the best and not the worst.  I keep chasing my pr and was hoping for it today.  My first two mile splits had me on track to achieve that, but my third mile my legs turned into concrete and I slowed down.

I still managed to pull ahead of the female crowd and placed first.  This race awards an overall female award and a from Galesburg top finisher award.  I have been the top Galesburg finisher plenty of times, but never overall.  This was my year.  I'm still happy to be cranking out the times that I do.  It may not be super fast, but it's fast enough for me!

This also doubled as my 5k for Running, Loving, Living's  Summer Virtual Run.  You still have time to sign up & enter this fun race!

Ok, I'm out the door.  Have a great week everyone!!!!

Friday's Findings

I'm under my usual self imposed stress of getting ready for vacation.  As of now, I have NOTHING packed.  I DO have a fairly clean house and ALL of the laundry done.  I just need to throw it in bags & get going.  I need to get this post done in wham, bam, thank you m'am style and get this show on the road.

This week I found 2 things while out running, or well, technically biking to/from a run with one of them.  The spoon I found completely flattened in the middle of the road a few blocks from my house.  If by chance I was going to get attacked that day I was PREPARED to spoon my offender to death.  (I'm teasing, you know.  I am aware of the tragedies that are happening to women while they are running.  There has been another well publicized one this week.  It breaks my heart, it really does!)  Anyway you never know when a spoon might come in handy, but this one was so flat that I threw it in the trash after I took it's picture.

While biking to my Wednesday group run I saw an article of cloth in the middle of Henderson St.  I could see a spot of blue on the crumpled heap and was pretty sure I knew what it was.  I was in a rush to get to my run on time so I passed it by for the time being.  Coming back from my run I passed by the item again and once it was retrieved I knew I was right the first time.  It was a towel from our local YMCA.  I brought it home to wash it & return it to the Y.  It can accompany the stack of towels that I already have that manage to make their way home in my own gym bag.  Oops : )

My last two items I found while out at some garage sales this morning.  I love old vintage glasses.  Ones with characters on them.  I have a whole kitchen cabinet full of them.  Although lately with my kids breaking a glass here and a glass there my collection is getting small again. So I've been keeping my eye out for them.  I won't pay a lot of money for them, as some do try and capitalize on their vintage-ness.  I came across 3 today that were each less than a dollar.  Score!  And they were ones I did not already own.  The Porky & Petunia Pig ones are part of a Pepsi collection and were dated 1973 & 1976.  That dates to when I was being born so you may or may not consider that "old".  The Garfield cup is from a McDonald's series and dated 1980.

Ok, time to get down to business with this packing for vacation.  I mentioned it in my vlog on Wednesday, but I will be in Clear Lake, IA while attending a church family camp at IRBC.  I  L~O~V~E that place with a passion.  This will be my 24th summer up there, the last 11 going as a family to week 1 of 5 that they offer to families.  I will do some vlog posts for you guys while I am there, but won't be able to post.  There is no wifi, no tvs, no computers (well, we can take our own, but we won't), etc.  Just family, friends and a WHOLE LOTTA JESUS!  AND it's in IOWA....could it be more heavenly?!?!?!? (The answer is no).  Let me leave you with a view from the dock where I'll be.

Have a great week everyone!

Tuesday's Tunes - Easy

My run/workout yesterday left me completely fried.  The heat really sucked the energy out of me.  Plus at the time I didn't have enough hydration & fuel to keep me topped off.  I did ok with my bottles of water, but I needed more.  Once I came home, I dipped in the pool and properly fueled my body to replace all that I took out.  After I showered, instead of getting dressed I changed back into my jammies and lounged around all day.  I even took a good solid nap.  I was exhausted.

It was a rare day with nothing on my agenda.  Nothing is just about all I did.  I did kick into gear late in the afternoon to cook supper, clean house & the such that I usually do in the day.  When I woke up this a.m. I had my usual battle of wanting to get my run done early vs. going back for a few more zzzz's and getting it done this afternoon.  The thought of the blasted heat got me going & out the door sooner rather than later.  I could still feel the effects from yesterday so I kept it simple and slow and easy.  2 miles to cover a few streets still left in my neighborhood.

Here are the few tunes I listened to while I ran:
Cartoon Song - Chris Rice
Angel (Metro Mix) - Lionel Richie
Pink Cadillac - Natalie Cole
The Way I Was Made - Chris Tomlin

I know I need to get used to the hot temps, this is key to training for Howl at the Moon in August.  It's a tough thing to balance.  I hope that by taking it easy today I can get back on track for a good week and a good solid 5k race on Saturday.

I Run This Town & Summer Virtual Run

I've been busy running the streets of Galesburg.  It has given me a lot of motivation to get out and get it done.  It has also given me more miles than I was expecting.  Not complaining there, I like to see the miles rack up.  More than once I have set out on a run with a particular neighborhood or streets to get done and I just run them.  I don't question how far it will be or how long it will take me.  I just run.

Here is a picture of the map I have posted in my dining room.  I should have gotten a complete before shot, but got busy marking things off right away.  How it looks today is not what is shown here either.  I keep adding more red (meaning completed).  I will give an updated shot in a couple of weeks since I will be on vacation next week.

In the upper left corner I am keeping track of the dates & miles.  According to wikipedia  Galesburg is 17 square miles.  I don't know what that means in terms of actual miles of streets.  Even if I knew that number it doesn't reflect what it would take to run each street.  Especially since some streets I have to run down & back.  Others I can connect together easily and some I have to loop around to make it connect.  It will interesting to see what the grand total of miles is once I am done.

 Same map, just a closer shot.

Not every run will help me in my quest to Run this Town.  Sometimes I run a route I've already ran.  Mostly so I can get a run in for the day.  Other times, like today, I had something else to accomplish and it took me away from Galesburg all together.

I set out to run Running, Loving, Living's Summer Virtual Run.  She gave the option of a 5k or 10k.  Since I am racing the Galesburg Railroad Days 5k this upcoming Saturday, I will use that for my 5k entry. (You don't have to run both a 5 or 10k, I'm just a super over achiever, crazy running person).  This morning I set out to run a 10k.  Just for fun, you know.  For super extra kicks I decided to also bike to my running spot.  It's a place way out (about 7 miles) in the country & it includes a lot of hills.  It is by far one of my most favorite running spots!!  I don't get out there nearly enough.  Anyway, I ran my 10k with a time of 58.24.  Not too shabby.  The hills were a little brutal at times and since I didn't get out there until almost 9 a.m. the sun was already H.O.T!!!!  The bike ride back into town was even more brutal.  Especially since someone thought it would be great to turn on a fan (wind) at a full blown speed.  Ugh!  I was hot & tired and I felt like I was biking through wet cement.

Once I finally made it home I collapsed in the front yard & had the kids take my picture with my race bib.  The bike had to be included since it was a vital part of getting me to and from said run.

Then I had the fun idea to jump in my neighbor's pool.  I didn't even bother changing into a swimsuit.  I just jumped in fully clothed in my running outfit.  I had my 6 year old handling my ipod & didn't trust him to stand closer to get a good picture.  But you get the idea!

A good dip in the pool was the perfect ending to this Summer Virtual Run.

Friday's Findings: Feeling Naked

My title doesn't have anything to do with what I found.  I set out for a run this a.m. & forgot my Bondi Band.  Gah!  I hate when that happens.  I felt so naked my whole run.  And sweat kept dripping in my eyes. It was awful.  Although I still managed to run 6, almost 7 miles.  I love my BB, but it won't keep me from my run.  I need to stash a few (I do have a few to spare) in the van so if I get away from the house I have that as a back up.

Anyway.  Found me some treasures this week.  See picture below & then I will explain.

I was recently cleaning out my garage & came across all the other bottles I have collected on my runs.  I had realized that it had been a long time since I had found one worth picking up. So I was excited to find this big ole bottle along N. Lake Storey Road.  There was even a swig or two left in it.  Likely back wash, I guess, but still full of liquor smell as I dumped it out.

The golf ball I found at the very end of my run.  I was running across a field to get to where I had not so smartly placed my water bottle.  When I swooped down to pick up the ball my eyes got drowned in sweat from NOT wearing my Bondi Band.  I had to stop & walk and try to get the extremely salty sweat out of my eyes without making it worse.

The cards I found earlier in the week along Main St. as I turned onto Edwards Ave.    I saw the 3 Skip Bo card before I even was upon it.  I was able to run by it, swoop down and snatch it without even stopping.  Score a find for my blog.  I took a few more steps and saw two more cards, but mentally said one is enough.  I wasn't going to pick up a whole deck if that's what I was going to find.  A few more steps and I said out loud "oh, that what I really just saw?!?!?"  My mind had this mini nano second argument.  Just keep going.  Not go back and see if that IS really what you saw.  The later won and I flipped back to look at the other two Skip Bo cards I had passed.  Yep, there laying side by side were the cards numbered 4 & 8.  That really only means something to me, but I'll share.  48 is my LUCKY NUMBER!  Not that I really believe in luck.  So I guess I should say it's my FAVORITE number.  It has been for probably almost 25 years.  The original reason it was my favorite doesn't even exist anymore, but it has stuck.  I have a lot of favorites like that.  I got stuck on it for one reason, but even after that no longer mattered, it was still a favorite.  Part of the loyalty that comes with who I am. 

Did you find any treasures while you were out running?

Three Things Thursday

1.  I am going on a retreat this weekend because I serve on the leadership team for Mom2Mom.  We are heading out to the fabulous home of Mrs. Mari-nanna (that's what we call her) on Little Swan Lake.  I will be gone less than 24 hours, but will without a doubt have a great time.  Mari-nanna is THE BEST cooker ever in all the world!  She will make and serve more unbelievably delicious food than we should consume within a week.  Will I hold back?  Keep calorie count in mind?  Make good wise choices?  Absolutely NOT!  I should just start fasting now so that maybe I don't feel so guilty when I stuff myself like there is no tomorrow.  Ahhhh, we only live once, ya know.  And I only go on this retreat once a year.  So I will enjoy each and every bite while I am there : )

2.  Tonight is my book club.  We call ourselves the Lit Wits  We formed about a year ago.  Just a bunch of women, who TRY and read a chosen book, then meet once a month for a "formal" gathering.  We have found that we only talk about the book 5% of the time, if even that.  The rest of the time we are talking, hanging out & having fun.  We have some VERY interesting conversation.  This has helped me broaden my horizons with reading material.  I really like to read, I'm just bad at taking time to sit down and do it.  If I have to choose between exercise/running (or sometimes house work) or to sit and read, I'm likely to pick the first.  I'm a on to move type of person.  Book club helps me get at least one book read a month.  Since I am hosting this month I got to pick out the book.  We read Before I go to Sleep.  It's an excellent read.

3.  My schedule has been very blank lately.  I like this.  Even with "nothing" to do, I still have PLENTY to do.  I try to embrace these days as much as I can.  I know that there has been and will be days where I have so much going on my head is spinning.  Sometimes it bothers me that I don't have girlfriends calling me up and scheduling time with me.  I call them.  I try to get things planned from time to time.  It wears on me that things can feel one sided.  I used to really put myself out there and that got me nothing but a bunch of hurt.  So I stopped and became more reserved.  Since no one really ever seeks me out I just stay in my little world more than I want to or feel I should.

Tuesday's Tunes - I RUN THIS TOWN

I almost talked myself out of running early this morning.  I still have yet to get a grip on my night time sleeping.  My new normal bedtime is 10 - 11 p.m.  EVERY NIGHT I think....I'm going to get to bed by 9.  And it just doesn't happen.  As I stood at my alarm I reset it for another hour of sleep and told myself I would run this afternoon.  When I crawled back into bed the thought Tuesday's Tunes popped into my head.  OH NO!  I can't blog until I have tunes to post.  And I really didn't want to wait until that late in the day to blog either.  For the most part, I really like to have this done as early as possible.  So I got up and going.....just for YOU ALL!

I was suppose to run 4 miles, but due to some extra motivation, that I will tell you about next, I threw in another mile or so.  I had enough time before my class, so why not.  Even though it was a "cool" 55 when I headed out at 5 a.m. I really worked up a sweat.  It took me awhile to get my stride flowing, but once I did I felt like I was flying.  I was SO thankful I did get myself up and running early! 

I didn't plan it, but I had a Michael Jackson theme to my music today.  When I run, I hit shuffle and let the randomness of 2600+ songs take me on my run.  I started with a MJ song (it's just what was on and playing when I started) and noticed a few more in there and ended with an MJ song.  Twice I did skip a song because it was really was just too boring for running.  When I have this situation I just hit the next button.  I don't go searching for a specific song.  Here are my tunes for today:

Heal the World - Michael Jackson
Eight is Enough - TV theme song
Seinfield - TV theme song
Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison
I Just Can't Stop Loving You - Michael Jackson
Blue - LeAnn Rimes
Rainbow Brite & Me - TV theme song
Papi - Jennifer Lopez
Friends - Michael W. Smith
Doogie Howser, M.D. - TV theme song
Take It to the Limit - The Eagles
Praclaim the Glory of the Lord - Steve Green
Bad - Michael Jackson
Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf - 3 Little Pigs
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper
Beat It - Michael Jackson

I have a new challenge to work through this summer.  It's called I RUN THIS TOWN.  The idea originated from my hometown running group, Muscatine Running Friends, where through out the course of a year they ran every single street in Muscatine.  This running club meets on Wednesday nights, Saturday & Sunday mornings.  They really are one great group of runners.  I love them to pieces and can not speak highly enough of them.  Many in the group completed what they set out to do and got cute t-shirts on them that have the map of the town and and logo to match.  I had considered doing this where I live (I live a little too far away to run with them all the time), but never got past the thought process.  Recently, my husband, Jim, had been talking about doing the same thing.  Thanks to some extra motivation and a challenge from him to get it done I decided to start in on this task.  Sometimes when I go out to run I have specific streets to run to cross off my list.  Other times it just happens while I am out on a run.  That is why this morning I added the extra loop.  I was able to knock a little neighborhood off my list since I was right there & had the time to run around it. 

I have a goal to get every street in Galesburg run by Labor Day.  I plan to make this the theme of my Monday posts to update you and let you know how things are going.  What about YOU?   Can you run your town?  Any Galesburgians want to join me in this challenge?  What about where you live?  Will you be able to say YOU RUN THIS TOWN?!?!?!

Friday's Findings & a Virtual Race

I didn't post last week about my find from that week so I combined it with this weeks find.  Last week I was running down Carl Sandburg Dr., as I often do to loop back to the Y and I saw a pair of flip flops.  It's not uncommon to find one shoe while out running, but usually not a complete pair.  It was quite obvious that to begin with these were very cheap flip flops.  They reminded me of the shower shoes that we wore in the Army.  Cheap & basic. 

Having recently battled plantar fasciitis I knew these shoes were a big no - no.  Which is not fair, because I'm very guilty of being a flip flop lover.  Very!  I wouldn't mind so much if my pf would flare up and give me problems all winter long when it's normal for me to wear strong supporting shoes.  But during the summer....come ooooooon!  So cheap, flip floppy shoes have become a past thing for me (make no mistake I'm still a huge sandal person, I just have to stick to good, sturdy, supportive ones).  Upon inspection of these particular shoes I could see how worn and "bad" these shoes were for any person.  No wonder the person threw them away. 

My second treasure I found yesterday was a bank debit/credit card.  Complete, intact with signature on the back card.  I have no clue if it's valid or not.  I see it's not expired.  Maybe it was stolen and someone ditched it.  Maybe she lost it.  I'm going to drop it in the mail and send it to the bank.  If anything for peace of mind that someone doesn't have the card in their possession.


I had stopped talking about it, but today/tomorrow was suppose to be my Back Yard 100 miler.  In light of my problems with pf and taking the whole month of May off I  had to tuck this dream away FOR NOW!  It still floats in my mind and I want to just start running NOW and go and go and go and go.  It's really just a personal goal & dream that I want to do this.  It will happen, I promise.

In the mean time I'm working on getting a good base built up for Howl at the Moon, my 8 hour ultra in August.  I also have a little streak going on.  Run everyday for at least 1 mile.  I know Runner's World has one going on from Memorial Day to July 4th.  I'm hoping to extend mine from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  After that, we'll might just keep going.  To help keep from getting the training blues and things turning mundane I have signed up to do a virtual 5/10k Race.  If you don't know what that means, you sign up on the great blog and agree to run/race a 5 or 10k or both between the dates of June 18 - 25.  You can actually compete in a race (which I plan to do the Railroad Days 5k on June 23) or make up your own time & place (which I plan to do for a 10k).  You can run against yourself or you can run against other people.  The idea is to get you out there to RUUUUUUN!  Now there's an idea! : )  Speaking of which, I need to go do myself.  One mile today.  I'm running on little sleep AGAIN so I'm not feeling over ambitious.  (It was so worth it to be out until to 2 a.m. with a gf at Steak 'n Shake though)

Have a great weekend everyone!  Don't wear cheap, basic flip flops.  Go make sure your bank debit/card is not missing.  And go sign up for this virtual 5/10k Run.

Three Things Thursday

1. I have been up since 4 a.m. I went to bed shortly after midnight. Do the math. Amazingly though I feel fine. I do expect to crash & burn at some point though. I really, REALLY need to work on my sleeping schedule. I know ultimately it's my responsibility, but my kid's summer schedule is throwing me for a loop. This is nothing new. I go through this every summer. On the plus side with such a carefree schedule (most of the time) I can afford to take a little snoozy this afternoon. I love soaking up the sun, so just when I'm ready to crash & burn I will throw on my swimsuit and go lounge/nap out in my lawn chair. I'm not a heavy sleeper so I'll hear the kids if they scream bloody murder over something & demand my attention. Even then I'll lay there half asleep and decide if they are just being over dramatic (my kids? neeeveeeeer?!?!?!) or perhaps need a good "KNOCK IT OFF!". Either way they'll survive mommy's little snooze time in the sun and we'll all be one happy family!  What is your sleep schedule like right now?  Does it being summer effect your normal routine?

2. I have been sitting out on my front porch for quite some time now.  This is my favorite place to be in the morning.  It has taken me way too long to get this post done.  I keep finding myself staring out into who knows what.  Just enjoying my quiet time.  Although it's not truly quiet since I have music playing on my ipod.  Among many things music can soothe my soul, quiet me down and leave me feeling refreshed.  What are some things you do for quiet time?

3.  In 16 days we leave for our annual vacation to IRBC Family Camp.  I am SO EXCITED!  I just want to hit fast forward and get there NOW!  I grew up going to this camp and this will be our 11th year attending as a family.  It was there a year ago is when I made my introductory vlog posts to kick of SRE.  Yay!  I'm coming up to my one year anniversary!  I will need to think of something special to celebrate my past year with you all.  Anyway....vacation.  I'm really looking forward to it and the awesomeness that always surrounds it.  I CAN'T WAIT!!!!    What are your vacation plans do you have for this summer?  Is there somewhere or something you do every summer to get away?

Running solo

Last Sunday was the inaugural Galesburg Half Marathon Express.  I swear if I had a dollar for every time someone asked me if I was running I'd be really rich!  Add another dollar for each time I had to tell them no, see their look of confusion/surprise then try and explain why I wasn't running....even richer.  Now that the race is done I STILL have people asking me if I ran and when I tell them no I have to explain AGAIN!  I need a shirt that says NO I DID NOT RACE THIS WEEKEND! because I'm ready to punch the next well meaning person that asks me about it.

I know I don't owe anyone an explanation, but I'll tell you anyway.  I didn't race because I went to church.  Sunday's is always a conflicting day for me to run when it requires me to miss church.  I was born and raised to go to church every Sunday.  Not so much church, as in the building, but my faith in God is a very vital part of who I am and that leads me to attend church the way I do.  You may or may not have known that about me.  I don't hide my faith in anyway, but I don't believe in shoving it in people's faces either.  I don't use my blog as a platform, but I have mentioned and worked my beliefs into a blog post from time to time when it works that way.

Anyway, I am in no way a be in church on Sunday or burn in hell type of person.  I don't know anywhere in the Bible where is says you MUST attend service every Sunday in a building between the times of 9 a.m. - 12 noon.  I still do on MOST Sundays, but that is my choice, my doing....not because I believe I "have" to.  I've been known to skip church for a lot of reasons, some of them even racing.  However, it's not the norm for me and my family.

Months ago when I hear about this race being formed & coming to town I was beyond excited!  How nice to race in your own backyard.  I remember it being the first thing I wrote in my 2012 calender.  Nothing was going to stand in my way of this race.  I knew from the get go that it would be on a Sunday.  In many ways that would still work just find.  My church offers 2 services and I could easily run and still make it to the second service that I normally attend anyway.  No problemo!   If I didn't want to push the time I could opt for the 5k and still make it ok.  As time went on though, something else came up that would change it all.  Our church had a big praise gathering on this same Sunday and the choir was singing several pieces during the 1st service.

If there is something that I love as much as running, it's music.  I think I was born signing and from the age of 4 I have been up on the stage singing my heart out for Jesus.  In school I was always in choir & have a long list of accomplishments in the area.  Don't get me wrong, I am in no way the next American Idol, but singing & music completes me almost as much as running does.  I'm not sure if one does more than the other.  What is even better is when they collide.  Ever see me out running while I"m totally jamming along to a song and singing my heart out.  Yeah, I'm sure it's quite a sight.  It's like a runner's high x 10.  Amazing!

So I sing in the choir which on occasion means I attend the 1st service.  I do this because I want to....I really, really want to.  When I realized the two created a huge conflict I had to choose.  This made it even harder.  *I* had to make this decision, in advance, and follow through with it.  *Siiiiigh*  Why, can't life be easy?!?!?!?  So, I knew in advance this was how it was going to be.  I made up my mind well in advance to not even start whining and complaining about what was going to happen.  Aside from being driven crazy (short drive) with the constant inquires about my running status, I think I did ok.   Yes, I really missed being part of the race.  I had hoped to volunteer and still be part of the race without racing, but remember last week I told you there was a snafoo, an oversight, something...I don't know, but I'm sure it was a honest mistake and I had to miss out on that too.

On Saturday I had a light bulb moment to still go out on race day and run the 13.1 mile course.  It would require me to be up and running by 5 a.m.  Yikes.....but I could do it.  If I wanted it bad enough I would make it happen.  So that was the plan, until I was up until 1 a.m. that morning.  Instead of being up and running at 5, I was just rolling out of bed.  I still decided to head out for a run and complete the 5k course instead.  When I got to the start/finish line (which they were in the process of getting set up) I heard a few whoops and hollers from my friends Matt & Tracy.  I won't lie, I started to tear up a little bit, knowing that I was going to miss out on the race time excitement.  I hollered at Matt & Tracy that I would be THE FIRST person that morning to run and cross the finish line.  I got a lot of weird looks and comments from people who were setting up the course.  Yes, I know the race doesn't start for 3 more hours!!!!  When I came back around to the finish line area I ran hard like I really was finishing.  I have no idea on time, I was just out there to run the course and even then I still had to run back home.  When I did get back to the area there were several groups of volunteers standing around.  I tried really REALLY hard to just casually run through the area, but several people were turning to look at this psycho me.  So to make fun of the moment and my craziness I turned, looked at everyone, gave a fist pump and yelled at the top of my lungs "5k course all cleared & good to go!"  I HAD to laugh at myself and get others to join too to just enjoy the moment and my day!

I was able to go down before the race for a little bit to talk to some friends and encourage them before they started.  Once 1st service was done I snuck back down there for a little bit to see some friends finish and talk to more people.  I'm sure that did not help the non stop questions.  Here I was dressed for church, milling around and not looking like my usual self on a race day.  It was still great to be there & do what I could.  I know that I could have done things the other way around and maybe it would have made no difference at all.  I just know that on this day for this particular conflict, choosing to sing with the choir is what I felt was right to do.  Maybe next year it will be different.  Who knows.  Either way the race itself was a great success.  Many people came out, I've heard nothing but non stop positive things about how things went.  That still makes it all worth the experience even I didn't participate in the traditional way.
