I’m getting so excited for my first race of the year on Sunday!
I’m running in the GoodLife Toronto Marathon – 5K race for my first race of the year and couldn’t be more excited.
I set a goal of running it within 25 mins so I’m excited to see what my body can do. My PB so far is 26.10 (no stoplights) and 27.06 (with stoplights – see picture below) and that was with my running partner pushing me to be faster than normal.
To help me with my race time goal I’ve become a running app person!
I tried out Run Faster on Weds during my Lululemon run club. You can play your running playlist then head over to the app and set your target pace and it will tell you to speed up or slow down to hit that target pace! Love love. So I’ll be using this bad boy on Sunday. Now to buy an arm band to house my iPhone since I usually put it in my running leggings leg pocket. Pretty sure it will be too warm for long pants. I also want to rock blue pants and a yellow top for Boston.
What’s even more exciting than running is getting to spend some quality time with my FitFluential friends. We are having an epic carb up on Saturday night at the Spaghetti Factory. I am not carbing up, lol, but will be partaking in sharing a steak with the lovely Jess and then chowing down on a shrimp spinach salad myself which is perfect for a night out with friends and keeps me on track with my meal plan. I’m so excited to meet Pavement Runner in person! I’m excited to chat more with Angela Simpson from Eat, Spin, Run, Repeat! Of course my lovely Krysten & Morgan will be there. There is a big long list of other bloggers I’m excited to see again or see for the first time so you’ll have to wait for my weekend recap!!
Happy Race Weekend!
