3rd place overall female at today's 26.2 Lake Chabot trail run up 3,493ft and 1st in my age category !😍Temperatures went from 64F to 93F 🔥 REAL quick!!! People were dropping out of the full marathon and the 50K due to heat stroke!!! I've seen big men crying out of cramps and women turning back defeated, while in my mind I kept thinking if my heart would stop beating (the song quoted) the Vultures would come and get my guts out and I don't want that to happen!!! 😳I could hear them KRAAAH KRAAAH flying on top on my heated and sweaty head! BUT my hydration was ON POINT! To begin with @amrapnutrition 🌰Beet juice at 7:30am prior to race to a few @oraliv vials during the race, to my faithful @camelbak filled with @gocarbopro and later filled with electrolytes by the awesome volunteers, that means I drank 6 liters without ever going behind the bushes! 💦💦 People did not have their hydro packs and couldn't handle the dry terrain and scolding hot opened spots direct sun! I honestly think all my training under the sun, healthy eating (at all times not just before a race) and water intakes prior to this day is what kept me sane, although by mile 18 the thought on picking up knitting as a hobby did come to mind 😂 I'm so dam happy about this brutal, hilly, though Marathon winning! Now ice bucket and a Piña Colada por favor! 🍹 Thanks to my sponsor @cwx_usa for the incredible compression shorts that kept my thighs in place!!! Thanks to the unexpected cheers at mile 13 at my 1st loop stop from @iouziz & @rayp33 ! 🙏🏽You guys gave me the extra boost to keep going strong!
And if you are reading this... thanks for all the positive vibes!!!❤️🎶
