Carrabba's Half Marathon Relay - June Race

Saturday, June 20, 2015

I'm doing a race a month with some friends this year. This months race was the Carrabba's Half Marathon Relay. Basically, we have four runners running a half marathon, or just over a 5K.

Unfortunately, the weather here in South Texas has been unusually wet lately. Like... really wet. So, they had to change our course... atleast twice due to parts of the trail being under water. It was unfortunate, but honestly I mostly felt bad for the organizers. In the end, our run was short and instead of running 3.275 we only ran 2.66. I'm not REALLY complaining.. I haven't been in the best running shape the past month. haha I ran the first leg doing a 3/1 split. I think until I feel better I'll stick with "wogging". I'm going to the running store this week, and see if it's my shoes. My calves have just been killing me more than usual since I changed my shoes after my last half.

Overall, we had a great time cheering eachother on, and doing a relay instead of the usual.

    How fun and exciting to be a part of a team doing a relay, even if the circumstances were not the best. Great job!

    How do you run in south Texas this time of the year? It's too hot and humid for me. I only run in the very early am this time of the year (before daylight) and wait until September before I run any races. Nevertheless, any race is a good race. keep on running.
