On Monday Amanda over at Miss Zippy invited everyone to her Year of Running 2014 link up party. Hop over to her blog and check it out!
2014 Running Year
I had a lot of ups and downs this last year and running was definitely included in it.
Best Race Experience
Hands down, my best race experience this year and in years past was the Tops 5K to benefit Roswell Park Cancer Institute. People fighting this horrible disease and the survivors inspire me ever day. This is a race that we all come together to fight for a great cause!
Although I didn’t have a stellar season, my best run would have to be the Buffalo Greek Fest 5K. I felt awesome and it was before I hurt my hip. I didn’t anticipate that last mile incline so my time wasn’t as good as I would have liked it to be. I felt great otherwise.
Best New Piece of Gear
This would have to be my generic IPod arm band. If I wanted to have any kind of music I would have to hold that puppy in my hand and boy was that a pain. My sister gave this to me for my birthday and I love it. I can’t for the life of me remember the brand name but it works like a charm!
Best Running Advice
This wasn’t so much advice as it was a training routine. I never followed any kind of set training regime. When I decided a year ago that I would train for my first half marathon I knew I had to follow some kind of training in order to be successful. The FIRST training method was what I followed and will continue for all of my longer distance races.
