Here we go! The night before half marathon #8! This one is one of my favorites, it’s the OUC Orlando Half Marathon by Track Shack. I am happy to say for a 3rd year in a row, I will be mooooving my feet to the finish line representing Florida Dairy Farmers! I just LOVE running with this team for many reasons. One to represent the cows, and two, because of the greatest team leader, Brittny!

And yes, I do love myself a BIG cold glass of chocolate milk after finishing! Do you drink chocolate milk? There is a lot of benefits to drinking chocolate milk as your recovery drink:

This race is usually my PR race, but not this year. My twisted spine has really been pissed off at me lately, forcing my ribs to be on the move. I will run it to my best ability, but I am also realistic in knowing that my time won’t be like my past. I am determined to not let these recent set backs kill my vibe though.

I fully intend to have fun, enjoy the team, and get that cold chocolate milk post race! I will also be running it with Alpha and he will be by my side, in case I have an emergency. I’m looking for a fun race and my goal is to cross the finish line!

Here’s to another race with the greatest team! 20151204_173035

Can’t wait to run through the streets of my favorite town, my hometown, my happy place. Lots of music, fun people cheering and lots of smiles!!!
