Seattle Craft Classic – Training Update

We are just a few weeks away from the Seattle Craft Classic and to be honest I am feeling pretty beat up. I sprained my ankle playing in a beach ultimate tournament at the end of July. I stayed off it for the weeks leading up to Seawheeze and finished the race. But due to other personal issues I’ve been going through running has not been a priority.

My original goal for this race was to run a PR in the half but clearly this will be a fun run or a no run. My first Fall Fleet Feet Training run was Wednesday and my ankle felt like crap. The speed was not agreeing with it at all. I am going to suck it up and buy a new pair of Hoka Bondi 5 and see if the cushion will help. I’ve been running in my Altra Torin 3.0 to use my gluteus and hamstrings more.

If you want to join me on September 10th in Woodinville use code BIBRAVEHALF for $10 off the half and BIBRAVE5k for $5 off the 5k. You can check out the finalize courses here and read about the finish line party too!

As I attempt to run over these next few weeks and rehab my injury I will see which Seattle Craft Classic distance I end up running. I am hoping it will be the half!
