Hurt the Dirt Recap

I was up bright and Early to get ready for this Hurt the Dirt Race Saturday Morning. My Running Group Picked my up at the Park n' Ride in Zeeland at 6:15am and we were off to Luton Park in Rockford. It was a bit chilly and very windy, to start the morning. We parked at a nearby church and then school buses shuttled the runners to the start of the race.
8:00 am Marathon Start
8:15 am 1/2 Marathon Start
8:30 am 10k+ Start

I decided last minute to just do the 10K+ because my Allergies had been bothering me and I really didn't want to chance getting hurt before the 5/3 River Bank 25K.

The Run was Great once we got going, It was kind of Cold while we were waiting to start but once we got out into the woods it was nice. I Finished in 54 minutes and actually came in first in my age group and 14th overall for the 10k+, I was pleasantly surprised.

Is Spring Allergy Season Upon us ??

Saturday I had a great 2 Hour Run and then Sunday a Nice little 3.5 Mile Shake out run.... both were outside. Then Monday Rolled around and I was Tired and winded could this be spring allergies? I am going to need to figure this out ... because it is Wednesday now and I am less Tired but I still feel like I am getting winded really easily :( Boo
