My fourth half-marathon….BEST one EVER!

{Stacy} Back to TX to run the Fort Worth Run Like a Cheetah half marathon again with sister.  This year I really wanted to place in my age division and did some real training.  Again, I followed no real training plan but I incorporated speed work, which I had never done in the past and also just added more distance to my long runs.

Woke up at 4am (4 hours pre-race) to eat 2 blueberry waffles, banana and Gatorade.  I then went back to bed and woke up 2 hours later to eat Puffins cereal with almond milk and 2 glasses of electrolyte water.  I was now properly fueled and ready to race!

This race is straight out and straight back.  At the turn around I was feeling GREAT.  As I was passing runners going the opposite direction (that hadn’t hit the turnaround yet) they were yelling out my place: Sister runs by in the opposite directions and says “Stac you’re the 5th female!!”; I crank it up a bit and then I hear “you’re the 4th female!!”, crank it up some more and really get in the zone.  Finished 3rd overall female and first in my age division coming in at 1:34:18. I was BEYOND excited.  Sister Lindsay also achieved a new PR of 1:54:25.

After this race Lindsay and I were on such a running high that we decided to start our Instagram account: @Run.Sister.Run.  We had no idea how inspiring the IG running community was and our passion for running became much deeper. We absolutely love reading about your journeys, sharing our very different journeys and hope you guys enjoy our experiences that we share with you!
