Hello! I ran the Irvine Half Marathon this morning so here are my results and recap and fun and randomness…
First, I really enjoy making bad decisions so I went out last night. No regrets, life is short and I do so many races if I didn’t drink on race weekend I’d be relegated to drink only on Monday through Thursdays and that’s unacceptable.
Irvine Half Marathon
The race is literally 8 miles from my house. Perfection! And it doesn’t start until 8am. Perfection x1000 – especially because I went out late last night.
My legs were super tired because I ran the Camarillo Marathon last weekend and ran 12 yesterday. The goal today was just to run a little faster than I would if I had a solo training run.
It actually started sprinkling during the race. Ha!
I was so glad I was not running a full marathon today! I need some rest.
Irvine Half Marathon results 1:54:01.
There was also a kid’s one mile race and it was the cutest thing!
Then, I spent the rest of the day EATING and hanging with my peeps!
Question: What are you doing (or what did you do) this weekend?

I ran my first 1/2 marathon this weekend! The Citrus Heritage Run in Riverside (CA). I had a few goals for the run, the most important of which was to finish. I finished, and ran most of it…so 2/3 goals ain’t bad. I wanted to get in at/around 2:30:00, but I got in at 2:48:XX. Not bad for never having ran that far before I’d say. I’m more proud of the fact that I ran a good majority of it…and it has a lot of steep inclines/hills. 🙂
wow, you’re amazing…that’s an awesome time considering you went out the night before and did a marathon the week before and ran 12 miles the day before?! seriously, you are a machine. what did i do this wknd, hmm…welp, a lot of beating up my body at night and then running and sleeping during the days. i need a re-do.
Sue @ This Mama Runs for Cupcakes says
Wow, I’m impressed. That is a great time considering you ran 12 the day before! Great job!
It was a fun Sunday group run yesterday! Ok, maybe a more social conscious run as our team lead handed us big plastic bags and plastic gloves to collect trash (eg discarded water/isotonic bottles, gel wrappers etc) along our usual route. Yes, unfortunately, some runners are uncivic-minded. 🙁

i love races close to home — so much less complicated!
AJ @ NutriFitMama says
You are a running machine! Awesome! I got in a nice workout on Saturday and a 10 mile treadmill run today. My next half is next weekend- yay! Other than that my son had a basketball game and we just kind of hung out around the house being lazy. 😉
I drove to Jackson, MS to run the Mississippi Blues Half Marathon! Fun times!!
Erin @ Erin's Inside Job says
I just got back from being out of town for a week, so this weekend was pretty much doing nothing and just relaxing at home. I had missed it so!
I also ran the Irvine Half! Did you happen to notice anything wrong with the medal? lol
I ran a 20 mile training run. Like you, I fueled the night before with pizza, wine and vodka. It was not a pretty run. But I made it – furthest I’ve ever run.
Lauren @ Fun, Fit, and Fabulous! says
I love love love races that are close to home. So much less stress! I can’t believe you did a marathon last weekend, a 12 mile run, and then a half marathon. That’s amazing!
I’m pacing/training a group for the country music marathon. We kicked off our training this weekend!
Did a whole lotta nothin’ yesterday, and ran 8 miles today. Now I’m resting my legs before grocery shopping later tonight.
Heather @ Run Eat Play says
Great job! 🙂
Went to my baby cousins first basketball game. (She’s 9) Was almost as cute as that kiddie run at your race. 🙂
I ran 18 miles total this weekend and did a marathon…shopping. Yes, a shopping marathon. And I’m not even sorry about it 😉
I ran 5 yesterday and did 30 minutes of strentgh training. The an awesome dinner at a nice Thai place! First time we ventured to downtown Atlanta for a night out since we moved here in August!
Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out says
I spent my weekend working out, eating, and hanging with friends!
Nona @ RunningHigh says
Wow lady! Way to go! I can’t imagine running a half the week after a full!
Sally @ sweat out the small stuff says
Nice! I ran 7 miles this afternoon. Tomorrow is boring stuff like laundry and supermarket.
Daisy @ Fit Wanderlust Runner says
I don’t know how you do it! Definite rockstar status. Especially after drinking the night before. I can barely break 2 hours sober!
Alisha @ Real Girl Running says
You run stacks of races! I don’t think I could do it. Kudos to you!
I did a 18km long run, but other than that I’m taking it kind of easy because I have to go back to work tomorrow … boo! We did go and see Taken 3 at the movies yesterday which was ok – pretty standard if you’ve seen the others.
Becky @ Ok, so here's the plan says
Nice work! I can’t believe how many races you run, I would die!
We have to clean our house in the morning (we’re trying to sell it and have people coming to look at it), but otherwise have no exciting plans for the weekend – just the way I like it! 🙂
