TheFitExpo San Jose (Day One) ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ
.
My Spartan/OCR family is huge, and I was so glad to meet a good number of them today. โค๏ธ Plus, I got my moneyโ€™s worth by running the Spartan Dash course four times, capturing pictures and videos for Spartan, and grabbing free stuff at the other booths. ๐Ÿ˜‚ See you guys again tomorrow...? ๐Ÿ˜

I would rather sunbathe at a beach to fix my uneven tan lines, but this was fine. ๐Ÿ™‚
Today, I ran Mission Peak with the intention of finishing the hike as fast as I could and getting fit for TheFitExpo in San Jose, LOL. (The heat reminded me of my 2016 Super at Diablo Grande though...) I completed todayโ€™s hike in 1:23:27, which was a little faster than my last hike but not better than what I expected. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
As hard as my training has been for my upcoming half marathon and two Spartan Beasts, I do not think that I have overtrained at all. In fact, my body is starting to tolerate these long distance runs. ๐Ÿ˜„ I will not go for another long run/hike (any distance longer than seven miles) until race day, so let me know if you want to join me in one of my training sessions before August 4! ๐Ÿ˜

Wooden floors never felt so good, LOL. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I have completed a couple Spartan Beasts before but never raced in a half marathon. Luckily, I signed up for my first one a few days ago. ๐Ÿ˜ However, I have less than three weeks left to prepare for this race... ๐Ÿ™ƒ
This morningโ€™s run was my longest continuous run ever, as well as my first attempt at running a mock half marathon. I probably was not in the right state of mind to start my race preparations with a fourteen-mile run, but it is good to know that I have a gas tank and can run at least 13.1 miles nonstop. (Additionally, I have somewhat of a home-field advantage by living close to the trail where the race will be held.) I know for a fact that I will not be the fastest runner on race day, but I will be proud of myself if I can show off my hard work and shed some minutes off my current half marathon time. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

Happy race weekend! If you are running the Fort Knox Sprint, have fun and #RaceWithHonor! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ And if you are running the Palmerton Super/Sprint, stop complaining, eat a good breakfast, hydrate, say goodbye to your loved ones, have fun with that double sandbag carry, and DO NOT DIE. (Keep in mind: you paid for this race and signed the waiver. ๐Ÿ™ƒ) No matter where you are racing this weekend, do your best to enjoy yourselves on the course and finish strong! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ

Siblings that race together, stay together. (Except on the course; I basically ditched Denise at the start line.)

In the words of DJ Khaled: โ€œAnother one.โ€ โ˜๐Ÿฝ
The multi-rig at University of Phoenix Stadium had me leaning harder than that tower in Pisa. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ• I had a couple mishaps on this particular obstacle (and eventually failed it), but I am starting to gain a lot more confidence in my grip at this point in the OCR season. Like I said before, I have spent so much of this year working on my grip strength, and I get excited when I see my improvements in each race. My technique might still not look pretty, but traversing these obstacles is starting to become second nature to me. ๐Ÿ’

โฑ: 47:48 (11:58/mile)

Not bad for someone who arrived in Arizona at midnight, had a couple hours of sleep, and volunteered on the course all morning. Imagine if I ran this race well-rested. ๐Ÿ˜ (I know that my ranking is pending, but that finish time is official, LOL.)
My goal was to finish this Spartan Stadium Sprint under an hour, and I was shook when I saw my final result. I did not run a clean race (I failed the Multi-Rig, which was the same setup as the one at AT&T Stadium ๐Ÿ˜‘), but I never ran a Spartan Race this fast before. I am also three-for-twelve on the spear throw now. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ My whole body was in a world of hurt after the first mile, but I pushed through the pain and repeatedly told myself, โ€œKeep going.โ€ My previous Spartan Race times are unimpressive, and I still have yet to run at one-hundred percent. However, I am proud of this PR and will continue my training to become a better obstacle course racer for future races. I am finishing the remainder of this year in the Open Heat, but you might see my name in an Age Group Heat pretty soon.
Congratulations to everyone who completed this fun Stadium Sprint! See you all again in two months for the Seattle Beast!

Better late than never, amirite? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿฝ Denise and I are expected to arrive in Arizona close to midnight, but we will still wake up bright and early to volunteer and race in tomorrowโ€™s University of Phoenix Stadium Sprint. Who is ready to have some fun in the Desert? ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿ”ฅ

Happy Independence Day, everyone! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
Remember to have fun and stay safe today! (And if you are shooting fireworks in the sky tonight, please do that legally and not near my neighborhood. @tikilagua hates them.)

I kicked off my morning with a 5-kilometer run at the Alameda 4th of July R.A.C.E., which was my last hard run before the University of Phoenix Stadium Sprint this weekend. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ I did not finish as fast as I expected, but I still had a fun time zooming through the parade route with my fellow runners (including one of the Kaju Dads!) and the Alameda residents lined up on the sidewalks. I came out of this race injury-free and cannot wait to bring the heat to Arizona! (I know that it is already HOT HOT HOT over there, but still. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ)
