Lace Up Irvine 50 % Marathon


Good day!! I ran the Lexus Lace Up 50 percent Marathon in Irvine yesterday and… did not publish about it. So did it seriously happen?

Actually – I did not put up mainly because I felt ill and gross all working day. I’m lastly rallying to share my race recap and random pictures. I actually like the Lace Up Race Collection and have run all 4 areas. If you have any concerns be sure to talk to.

I’ll also connection to my prior race recaps beneath!

Okay… back again to the race!

I obtained my bib, terrible and race tee the evening before. Diego arrived with me due to the fact it was at a park. It was effortless, no lines, friendly volunteers, in and out rapidly.

Then, I dropped Diego off at my friend’s house and received distracted chatting so I did not get house to try to eat evening meal right up until close to 9pm. Not that major a deal – I’ve had late evenings prior to races prior to. In addition – it was not that late and I was not consuming.

But I my stomach kinda hurt the total race and I felt a little nauseous. I think I probably ate a little something poor and it was not plenty of to give me full on food poisoning but I felt sick the complete race. Sooooo – that is why my recap was a lil delayed. I acquired a few Instagram messages and can validate that I’m not dead.

Lexus Lace Up – Orange County – Half Marathon

The Study course: It was a new study course!! I genuinely liked it.

The 50 percent marathon training course was distinct from past calendar year from the pretty start off. I like that it started in close proximity to a lovable browsing plaza and across from a tiny lake. It is a fairly location.

It is relatively flat outside of the underpasses and a great deal of the course is on a bike / pedestrian trail.

There was water, electrolytes and I gels on the race training course. The volunteers had been amazing and encouraging as they handed out the considerably appreciated hydration. Thank you thank you thank you – it was quite Incredibly hot and HUMID.

I ran the race with Kristin Stuft Mama and we took a handful of going for walks breaks by way of assist stations and up a few of the smaller hills. We each felt a minimal fewer than 100% so we had currently planned to continue to be with each other and catch up for the duration of the race. It was a tough working day temperature-clever so we were making an attempt to be conservative with work and pace.

Put up Race: The Lexus Lace Up Races have the Greatest article-race parties. There are games for little ones, a lot of booths and Foods Vehicles. Each individual runner gets a cost-free consume and absolutely free beer ticket with their race entry. (Very well racers in excess of 21 get the beer.)

And this ticket is not for 50 % a banana… there have been 4 different meals trucks to pick from!

A smoothie truck, a grilled cheese truck, a person that experienced breakfast bowls and one particular that had breakfast sandwiches. I assume there was an alternative for breakfast burritos far too?

Because it was soooooo Very hot and HUMID I went with the smoothie. It was perfect mainly because this 1 had ginger, which is identified to enable settle your belly. Moreover I am one particular.

A ginger.

Not a smoothie.

My Race: It was rough. I just felt a tiny ill race early morning. It wasn’t more than enough to skip the race or continue to be in bed, but it was not beneficial that I did not know just what was ‘off’ so I couldn’t really do everything or just take nearly anything to sense superior.

Soon after the race I was seriously diligent about re-hydrating and felt a great deal superior the up coming working day.
