Cross Country Race In Yucaipa

So, we did our first cross country 5km in Yucaipa today. Fun, but a very challenging course. Lots of ups and downs, crossing bridges, cobble stone trails, shady sandy trails- made for a competitive race. All of the See Mommy Runners kicked butt today. Bobbi was the lone girl doing the 10km but missed the turnaround spot- so finished a 3.4 mile course in under 23 minutes. Megan, Katy and Rachel finished within 20 seconds of each other. Amber was brave enough to push a BOB stroller on this course. Makes it even tougher! We stacked the top 3 "official" places for women!

Great job TEAM! Next race, Fontana Days Half and the TIN MAN Triathlon!!

ST GEORGE HERE WE COME!!!!!!! Bobbi, Megan and Rachel will start officially training for that the week of June 12.

Redlands Runners KICK BUTT!!

Congratulations to my team!

The Run through Redlands happened today and we did awesome! We had two runners in each race; 5km, 10 km, and the Half Marathon. My half marathon runners, Katy and Amber, this was their first ever half marathon and they kicked booty! Katy finished in 1:49 (6th in her age group) and Amber did it in 2:02 and was 11th in the same age group (26-29).

The 5km had Teresa who was pushing a double jogger with twin 18 month old boys and finished 11 minutes faster than last year in 33:19! Dee Ann finished right behind Teresa in 35:54.

The 10km had Bobbi McCormick and myself. Bobbi, one fast cookie, finished in 45:34 and placed second in her division. I (pink skirt) finished in 48:53. Managed to place 3rd in my division despite nagging side stitches.

Upcoming races include the Yucaipa Iris Festival, Fontana Days Half Marathon and hopefully Montrail Run Like a Girl 5mile trail run.

Welcome New Members

I'm very excited to say that my little group of three has jumped up to 7! We now have Bobbi, Amber, Megan, Dee Ann, Teresa, Katy, Jen, and me! How awesome is it to work out with a great group of women?!

With this large group, it's been fun planning the upcoming events. We are all for sure doing some form of the Run through Redlands (5km, 10km, or half marathon). Next half is on June 4th for the Fontana Days Half Marathon. And a full marathons is in the works. We would really like to do St. George Marathon, however, it's on a lottery system- so we don't know yet if we can do it.

The weekly workouts are as follows:
Mondays: Speed Work
Wednesdays: Long Distance Run
Fridays: Easy
Saturdays: Long.

Upcoming Events

The Run through Redlands is coming up on May 4th. Katy is planning on running her first Half Marathon. Teresa will be running the 5km with her twin boys, Jen B will run the 10km with me. Katy is our newest- most motivated and enthusiast member of our team and I'm really glad to have her with us!

Loma Linda Triathlon is also coming up. It's a sprint triathlon (150 yard swim, 10 mile bike, 3 mile run)! Personally, I'd rather have the swim last, so we will see how this one goes. April 27th.

Bicycle Racing 101

Rachel entered her first bike race of the season last Sunday, and got her butt handed to her. AHHHHHHHH!! Back in the days before kids, I used to race a lot. Now, 4 years after the first one, I'm just getting back into it and although I know the "rules", I BROKE every single one of them.

Good news, I got a fantastic interval workout!

I wrote more about it on my other site. You can click over there for a complete review of my *r*a*c*e!
