Hey guys hope all is well and welcome to another post on this BLOG. today I will be share my experiences of the 2022 Rock N Rock Half Marathon . So lets go.
This year I decide to Run and a company Traycee Bee! since I wasn't planning on trying to set a NEW PR or anything. I just wanted to finish and make sure my friend crosses the finish line. The expo was help at the Conrad Hotel & Casino.
I was so busy I didn't even have time to explore the premises. I wanted to make sure I got there on time so I can go talk to the ULTRA booth that sales shoes. Plus I wanted to get my bib and pick up my Charity Medal from St Jude along with my Perks. Heres 2 picture of me and my dog wearing the medal. LOL.
I would like to give St. Jude a big shout out thanks again from providing us with awesome perks right before the start of the race. I just love being part of this every year. Even my doggie BLITZ got in the action.
Here are some photos before the Race!
Lets get running! as we all started to move up the corral I was feeling happy, excited and confident in what I was ready to go accomplish. I will say that I was having issues with my left knee prior to starting the race. But I decide to just use my knee braces and KT tape. Oh was I wrong. During mile 8.5 I managed to slip and try to catch my self landing and by doing that I ended up damaging my LEFT KNEE. So I waited for the ambulances to take me away. During this I was so mad and upset at myself, and the worst part was I really couldn't move. I will save you the time and spare you the details, but my next few month sucked. Here are some photos from that night.
I am not done. I will come back stronger!
Plans to keep me motivated. I plan to return to my running!
I plan to be out there helping my good buddy, @ KODIAK100.
I Plan to be ready for Thunder Ultras 2022.
I plan to re lose all my weight gained during this injury.
I plan to stay committed and focused.
