HBF Run for a reason training – week 6 and race day!

Race week!

This one was a little difficult.  I did go on a long bike ride, and tried to find hills during my last run in California (which is so easy to do in where I run).  Then I traveled to Australia.  I lost a day, as you travel into the future, and skip a day.  I’ll get it back when I travel back to the US in August though!

Overview:  What a great end to the week!  The HBF Run for a Reason was a great success!  I think I’ll write a blog post about it, so I’ll link it here when I am done.

It was a very tough week, training wise.  I traveled to Australia, which meant going over the international date line and therefore losing a day.  But, it all worked out well.  I’m super happy with how this training cycle went – even though I slacked off a little towards the end.
