Finished Race #2: 3.5 Miles in SF

I finished my second race of the month-it was the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge. I am stoked and did surprisingly well… I finished in 32 minutes, which is a 9:22 pace. It turns out I came in 7th for all the women at Shutterfly and we had 186 people attend! The race was 3.5 miles around AT&T park but my Nike Plus said I ran 4.36 miles so I am convinced the race was not marked correctly! It definitely felt much longer but either way, I RAN the whole thing!

Exciting News: Race Day is September 12

Posted on

If you have been following my blog lately you know the majority of my posts have been about running and trying to get more into the sport. It has always been something I don’t like….actual dread…but recently it has been more of a hobby and daily routine. I have been running on average two miles every day and I am so damn proud of myself! I do it every night when I get home from work and it doesn’t bother me or anything. No matter how tired I am I put on my Nikes and Tuneband (best purchase off Amazon ever) and get running. I bring my puppy Gracie and she loves it. She keeps up with me and trails right behind me. It is so cute and I know she actually looks forward to it too.

I am so excited to announce I will be in my first ever RACE!! Shutterfly (they own Tiny Prints, where I work) is sponsoring the employees to participate in the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge in September! It is 3.5 miles along the water in San Francisco and I am stoked. The timing COULD NOT be more ideal as now all my running is actually part of a training program. I had no intention of signing up for a race and merely run for exercise but this is perfect. I am slowly increasing my distance and before I know it I will be running 3.5 miles like a pro. Some of you might be chuckling but if you knew me it’s a big deal! I am so so excited and can’t wait to get my first race bib. Exciting stuff!!
