Can’t get enough podcasts about running? You’re in luck: while I was in Spokane, Another Mother Runner recorded a bonus session with me discussing racing wisely and Racing Wisely. This was recorded live with a group of retreaters who were preparing to run Happy Girls Spokane. In it, you’ll hear lots of racing advice, including my critical soul sucking technique, as well as good questions from runners preparing to race.
Side note: Happy Girls Run was indeed a happy race. I enjoyed running an open 5K for the first time in over a decade. With 5K, 10K, and half marathon options on a mix of bike path and scenic trail, it offered a challenge, then followed through on the happy with brunch! There was beer, cocktails (!!!), teriyaki, and bacon. Best race ever?
