BIG NEWS. Against my better judgement and my desire to actually get sleep, I'm entering the world of daily vlogs!

This weekend was one of my favorite races, the NY Front Runner's 5 Mile Pride Run. It felt right to be with the running community and the LGBTQ community, running for love, acceptance and celebrating life. I decided to run the race in a cape which may have looked cool but it felt like running in a sleeping bag. Now my best idea. It was hot. Like really, really hot. And for the first time ever, I almost...(Disclaimer we're about to get gross) puked running into the finish line! I wish I could have seen the look on my face but I was shocked and I hope it NEVER happens again.
Josh gave me my goal time of 37 minutes and I ended up finishing in 38 minutes and 10 seconds. I'm not going to say I'm disappointed but I'm definitely ready to prove that my hard work is paying off and that I can hit my goal times. I had a great time running the race and I definitely ran my ass off but I could have pushed myself when I got tired. It's a work in progress this whole not pulling back when I get uncomfortable thing.
We've spent the last 2 months working on my speed work and now the endurance is being brought in. It's getting real! We're 3 months away so let's get ready to rumble!
Until next time, #RunSelfieRepeat.
