Got Guts?

September 10, 2007

Over the weekend I went to Austin to run in the Got Guts 5K, which benefited celiac disease awareness. Conveniently, one of my best friends and ex-roommate Carmen now lives in Austin so I got to stay with her. Also, she ran the race with me which made it a lot more fun.

This was an interesting race because it was almost completely run on grass. I’ve never done an off-road race before, and I wasn’t expecting it. I didn’t like it at first, but by the end of the race I was used to it. Also, all the food provided was gluten-free. I tried some of it, and there were some cookies that I really liked! I brought home a whole lot of gluten-free snacks to give to the people I know that have celiac disease.

Other running updates:
>I still really want to run the Texas Independence Relay, but my team is up in the air.
>I’ve been following a marathon training schedule and it’s going really well.
>I’m going to join a gym soon because my schedule is making it difficult to get to the park at safe times.
>The next race I’m signed up for is the Tabor Homecoming 5K on October 20.
