Hey guys! Just checking in this morning to update you all on my weekend. I ran the Avengers Half Marathon at Disneyland yesterday!
This was my fourth, and by far the toughest, half marathon, even though I think I trained better than I ever have before. The Santa Ana winds picked up just as we started, and got more and more brutal throughout the race. Then, I started getting some seriously bad pain in the outside of my left hip around mile five that I couldn’t shake for the remainder of the run.
Still, I finished! I may have had my worst time ever, but I still feel pretty accomplished. I am also pretty proud of my seriously awesome Thor costume, complete with a handmade hammer that Eric and I put together earlier this week.
Now I just need to figure out what was causing that hip pain and get it taken care of before my next race. Eric was experiencing similar issues, so it must be something we’ve been doing wrong during training. For now, we’ll spend the next few days icing and stretching.
