Another great year for the Cajun Cup is in the books! I like having annual races to look forward to, and this is one that will surly remain on my annual calendar for the foreseeable future. I love racing with friends, and running into (literally) so many familiar face along the way!

My goal this year was to start slow, finish strong, and put up my best Cajun Cup time to date. While I did all of those things, I had hoped for a better time. I think I have mental block in regards to getting myself into that 8 minute mile average pace at greater than a 5k distance. Subconsciously, I'm stuck thinking "you run in a 9" and I'm scared to push outwards. Anywho, I definitely think I could have done better time-wise, but overall I'm pleased. Something to work towards this run season and overcome that mental road block.
My race went like this: First half- have fun, second half, girl you better work.
Mile 1: 9:35
Mile 2: 9:24
Got lapped by Santa in dread locks. The humiliation!
Mile 3: 9:05
Mile 4: 9:34
Mile 5: 9:16
Mile 6: 9:01
Overall, it was a fantastic race. Plenty of water stops, no bathroom issues (praise J), and several cheering sections! We had wonderful run weather, and I had blast running with the Sole Sistas!
