Pre-Pumpkin Run 5K

First things first, I ran my longest distance ever last night! 7.3 miles and it was under a 10 minute pace. Hannah & I were super proud of our run because not only was our typical Greenway/running path shut down forcing us to get creative with our run, but we had to run through UNCC's campus which meant lots and lots of hills. Awesome, right?

It was. 'Cause we rocked it.


It's been almost two months since my last race, which means it was high time to sign up for another one. That's a tricky thing to do in the fall when football season's going on and you have to find a race that fits perfectly into the schedule.

It's about 2 minutes away from my parent's house.

It's at 8:30am & Clemson has a night game Saturday night.

Plus, the weather looks great for running {50ish degrees & sunny}.

There really was no excuse to not sign up for this race!

Here's my running playlist for Saturday:

... yes, it does start off with Tiger Rag. What did you expect? It's Game Day and race day!

The goals are... 
1. Run the whole thing {always a goal!}
2. Run at a 9:15 - 9:30 pace

So here's to a good race on Saturday!


Linking up with Sam over at Pancake Warriors for a little Fitness Friday action!


  1. Oh goodness, I remember running through campus and you're right, the hills were awful! Good for you though!!

  2. I like that running list! Anything with Kesha and Taylor Swift is a win in my book!

  3. Good luck! Have a great run!

  4. Just found your blog and am in love! I'm a fellow Clemson grad and listen to Tiger Rag when I run all the time! Such an amazing pump-up song and always puts a huge smile on my face. :)
