"The Year of 40" - Red Hot Chili Pepper 5K

Completed race number 25 the day before I turned 40 a few weeks ago. The "Red Hot Chili Pepper" 5K lived up to its name.  It was warm and muggy by the time the race was underway. Made it through and finished, which is always goal #1!

"The Year of 40" Race Number 24: Savannah Summer Soaker 5K

Working it past the halfway mark!  What better way to run a race during the summer than to do it while playing with water guns with one of your kids?!!

Done and soaked!

"The Year of 40" Races Number 22 & 23: JCB Mud Run Challenge & Summer Sizzler 5K

Two more races down recently. Ran my third obstacle course mud run at the JCB Mud Run Challenge on 6/18/16 and the Horizons Summer Sizzler 5K on 6/25/16.

JCB Mud Run Challenge

This wasn't the toughest of the mud runs I've done so far this year, but that doesn't mean it was easy. Each race has unique obstacles, challenges, and course design. The mud at this run was probably some of the thickest I've dealt with this year. Thankfully on this day the weather cooperated and the heat and humidity weren't unbearable.

Horizons Summer Sizzler 5K

This 5K was rough and that's all there is to it!  Sizzler was perfectly named as the temps at start time were already nearing 80 degrees.  The humidity was up, so it made for a challenging 3.1 miles. In the end I got it done and finished standing.

Got to hang out and run with a couple of friends. We survived!

The second half of "The Year of 40" challenge began 6/11/16 with the Jailbreak Mud Run Challenge.  5 miles and 50 obstacles that were truly a test of strength and endurance.

"The Year of 40" Race Number 20: Run The Farm 10K


Made it to the halfway point of "The Year of 40"!! Got my tail kicked by the humidity during this 10K run but in the end all that counts is I finished standing.  I've come a long way and still have a long way to go. Training continues and as the weather heats up it's going to add another layer to the challenge.

"The Year of 40" Race Numbers 17 & 18: The Color Run and ERS Nine Line Run For The Wounded

Two more races down!  Another day of doubling up. The weather is warming up and the humidity is back, so the second run of the day was definitely more of a grind than what I've come up against so far this year. All in all, a great day of running. I got to spend time with one of my kids during The Color Run and then got to run to support a great cause with the 3rd annual Nine Line Run For The Wounded 10K.
