3 races down, 1 to go + Meal Planning

Hello from Bethlehem, PA!

First, I have no idea what is going on with my blog so ignore the strange missing header and sidebar for now… I’ll deal with that when I get home.

The Runner’s World Festival has been amazing, and amazingly exhausting! The trail run was Friday, and although it was only 3.7 miles, it was intense.

I ran the 5k and 10k yesterday, and now need to power through the half this morning.  My quads are definitely feeling the hills from all 3 previous races so this should be interesting!

Have you ever done races back to back?

What’s your throw together meal after being away for the weekend?

  1. I’ll just comment on your blog before the half marathon LOL. It’s so great to be here and congrats on the trail run/5k/10k. You guys are on fire. We need to get a photo today though! 🙂

  2. Yes, I did the Hat Trick the last 2 years!! Congrats on amazing times on all your races. Once I finished the 5k I really wished I was doing the 10k too, but I know I’m not in that kind of shape yet! Safe travels home. Glad you enjoyed your time in Bethlehem!!

  3. It looks like you are having a good time! I bet the half will go smoothly, even though you really gave it your all for the 5k and 10k races! They weren’t easy warm ups, that’s for sure! The only time I have “raced” back to back was when I did a relay race, which was a lot of fun but it’s definitely tiring. Other than that, I generally do back to back long runs on the weekends, so am used to running on tired legs! However, those are not at full power, that is for sure!
