Athlinks.com – Success! Thanks for claiming your results! The new easy way to keep all your race results in one place!

I started running in 2012 and only did one timed race at the end of that year. I think I discovered Athlinks at the beginning of 2013 when I felt like I was truly a real runner. Everyone that has ever logged their race times in a notebook will be happy to have all this info on an easy to use website that has all those stats from far back.

A few years later they started adding other features like runner tracking and adding rivals/friends to your profile so you could see what races your friends are doing. Great motivation for signing up for a new race, to see how you do against another friend.

I really like that the website keeps track of your distance PRs so you don’t have to write it all down somewhere, which you will probably lose (if you’re like me!) . I like that my marathon PR is prominent on my profile, even if it’s not super impressive compared to some friends but makes me happy to go on the site and check it out.

Recently I had to merge two of my accounts into one with the email address that I am using now and it was super easy, I just emailed the help desk and they fixed my issue and put all my results in my gmail email account and pretty quickly too.

I am going to walk you through the whole easy process of claiming your results and adding yourself to the start list.

First off once you have created your profile on athlinks.com your page will look like this. Although I have had my account for awhile if you are anything like me it will fill up quickly with info. It shows my athlinks friends who are racing in June as well as my recent results as well as PRs for a few distances.

I wanted to find my recent results from a 5k I ran in March since the one I ran a few weeks ago still have not submitted their results online for athlinks to use on their site just yet. So I typed in my whole name in the search window and put my birth year as a filter to find results with. The search brought up a few results from an Elizabeth Johnson as well as a Beth Johnson, I was neither so I went and searched a different way, by the name of the race I had ran.

athlinks2

Found it when I searched out DRI Hope and got my divisions results, I actually stupidly left early from this race not realizing that I had placed in my age group so I missed out on the awards. But that is besides the point, I can find also my placing overall and in my gender on this page.

athlinks3

Then when I click on my actual name it sends me to this page with more stats like weather for the race and the distance as well as split times for longer races of course. Since this was only a 5k it only shows the finish time split.

athlinks5

After you have claimed your results, you will also get an email from athlinks about it, like below.

athlinks13

Jumping to my 2017 Miami Marathon results page, you can see some of the splits for the full marathon and if you scroll down farther and Athlinks has sponsored your race photos for the event you will get your media for the event. Which is super cool because not only do you get to see your race photos in a little gallery and they are FREE, but you can see a video of yourself crossing the finish line! I am always super excited when athlinks is a sponsor at an event because then it means I will get great quality race pics as well as all my stats updated on the site fast!

Ok so speaking of Miami Marathon, I noticed that we can already add ourselves to the start line for 2019 Miami Marathon and of course I already signed up for next years event just a few days after I ran this years marathon. Here is how to add yourself to the start line, first find the event you are going to race. In my case, its all of the ones shown below šŸ˜‰

athlinks7

Then click on said event and it will show average temps and start line schedule for the event. Plus it will give you the option to go straight to the registration page and sign up for the race (incase you havent already!). athlinks8

When you click on Join the Start Line there will be a pop up window with some questions, just basic info on what your goal time is and if you have anything you want to tell your athlink friends about why you are signing up for this race/goals/anything! athlinks9

I filled it out and I am really hoping that I can get this goal next year! Putting it out there in the universe usually can be helpful when trying to reach certain goals, and mine is a sub 4 hour marathon finally!athlinks10

Once you submit that info it will take you to a page with other people who have joined the start line of the same race and you can see what kind of goals people are chasing and it’s pretty cool when you recognize friends/running acquaintances on the list. athlinks11

 

Then once you are done stalking, er I mean looking through the Start Line List of your upcoming races it will pop up as an upcoming race on your athlinks home page, just to remind you when you log in. That’s always a good thing since it will keep your mind on the goal of that certain race. I will have my start line upcoming races pretty full soon, lol.

athlinks12

Summer is pretty much here, so that means training will begin for quite a few athletes for the upcoming fall races so claim all your past results and start adding yourself to those Start line lists.

Add me as your athlinks friend/rival, whichever you think I am, lol.

Aftershokz Trekz Air – bone conduction headphones – a review

“Disclaimer: I received a pair of Aftershokz trekz air headphones to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!”

IMG_6750

When I first started running I relied very heavily on music to power me through my runs and when for some reason the phone would go haywire with the music it would ruin my entire run/race. Once even during a half marathon I had music troubles and it really messed with my head, causing a pretty unimpressive finish time. Then there was the Miami Beach Halloween half marathon which holds my half marathon PR and I think was highly due to the great playlist my boyfriend made for me before that race. But soon after I was pregnant and did not feel safe running with headphones, very paranoid about safety for myself and my unborn daughter. Speed up to a few years later and still do not run with music due to safety factors and running with daughter in stroller. Until now!

 

When I found out I had the opportunity to review a pair of bone conduction headphones by aftershokz I jumped on the chance and I have to tell you I have been missing out on so much more energy in my runs! Finally a headphone that allows you to hear your music and your surroundings without an earbud threatening to fall out the whole time. Also what has always bugged me about the earbud thing is that after hours of using them they make the inside of my ears sore for hours later. I discovered this horrible thing when training for a 50k last year and doing a lot of training while on a treadmill. This is something that does not happen when wearing the aftershokz trek airs, they fit comfortably around your ears and do not bounce when running and cause no issues on long runs. I tried them out for the first time this weekend when doing a 10 miler on the treadmill, some mornings its necessary to stay off the roads and watch my toddler in the monitor to get in my run before she wakes and these were perfect. I listened to some music and then watched a movie, all without any issues connecting or hearing, and that is saying a lot because my treadmill is old and very loud!

 

Yesterday I wore my trek airs to the c25k program that I am helping pace in the afternoons after work and there was quite a buzz about them. Everyone asked me a million questions and was super interested in these bad boys! Plus I have to say even though I was listening to Rock Anthems channel on Spotify I ran a lot faster even though at the time I did not feel like I was running so strong yesterday. I ran faster than I did last Thursday and that is saying a lot because last Thursday I felt like I was flying.

 

Another morning I used them to listen to podcasts while running a 10 miler on the treadmill. It was a first for me, listening to podcasts that is, I had never done that before, I know I know, I am sooooo behind in the times but it was fun and I got to listen to some amazing runner women like Gabe Grunewald talk about running. Never had any issues hearing things while running on a very noisy treadmill. I do know that later on in the week I forgot to bring them with me on the treadmill and was forced to listen to a symphony of frogs croaking, ugh! I haven’t forgotten them again šŸ˜‰

 

Also are great for using while watching a movie beside a napping toddler šŸ™‚

 

So what exactly is this “bone conduction” stuff that allows you to hear without an earbud or headphone over your ear? Well I was curious about it too, it means that the headphones send mini vibrations through your cheekbones, directly to your inner ear, leaving your ear canals open. Which in turn makes them the safest headphone on the market, you can hear your surroundings and your music at the same time! They have even been redesigned to improve the bass and dynamic sound.

Running For My Life

Trail Running Faith

Run for cover

The last 3 weeks have been a whirlwind of activities, tragedies and low mileage. About 3 weeks ago I ran over to the neighborhood nearby mine to see the FIU bridge be brought over and placed over the road, 5 days after it collapsed taking 6 lives. I traveled under that bridge 4 of those days, each morning with my toddler in the backseat of my car. It could have been us kept going through my head when I heard the news, it was a bridge to connecting my work place to the city of Sweetwater. For a few days I really had a hard time sleeping and I think that my stress from it was affecting my toddler. I know the miles could’ve helped but I required more sleep and no long run that weekend. The following week started out okay and was able to start my week full of running but by that Thursday I just wanted to rest. I was starting to get a sinus infection and did not run at all that weekend, the next week brought on all new challenges. Phoebe ended up getting a very high fever last Tuesday night and my next couple of days were spent trying to get it down and a mix of urgent care/children’s hospital visits. Now she is doing better and I have a little less stress about her health this week and starting to ramp up my mileage again.

Life sometimes gets in the way of your plans, fitness goals, workouts and as hard as it is to wake up early after slacking off for a few weeks due to a lot of stressful situations I am happy that I am feeling better and getting back to my mileage goals. I started out the year hoping to run 40+ miles each week to be able to hit 2018 miles before 12/31/2018 and even though I sort of see that goal slipping away I know it’s still possible with some determination. I also wanted to run the Keys 100 50k this year but I’m not really sure that I want to this year. Maybe next year I will be ready for it, I don’t want to slack off this summer or anything, in fact I want to work harder and work on my speed for the fall season of races. I plan on doing the Space Coast Marathon this year and that means that marathon training would be starting again in July! Summertime marathon training, that should be fun, I know this humid/hot hot heat running will make me stronger when the weather gets a little better. I plan on getting serious too about my strength training too which I have not been serious about in a very long time, probably contributing to my slowing paces.

Socially the last few weeks have been pretty busy, Phoebe has met and took pics with 3 different Easter bunnies and did an egg hunt and even rode down a large slide ride with my sister and her cousin, Logan. Despite my exhaustion and our rounds of illnesses in the past few weeks it hasn’t been too bad lately in gaining lots of experiences and adventures.

Also something that I have been involved with lately is helping train some of my workplace’s employees in running a 5k race. I jumped at the opportunity to help with pacing duties for the program and have really enjoyed helping others conquer their goals. We are about halfway through the program right now and they are training for the Corporate run 5k at the end of this month and most of the runners are doing very well. Most of them also are not new to running but a few are very new to run, a couple are just getting back into it and want the accountability of a group run session to help them stick with it. Just 6 years ago I was training using a c25k training app on my phone, it would’ve been more helpful if I would’ve had a group to train with. I have been running/pacing with the group 2 days a week now and get in a few miles beforehand because driving home to change and back would take at least 30/40 minutes. It’s a nice and easy way to give back to the running community by helping others become better runners.

KT Tape – my review

Disclaimer: I received KT Tape to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

So for a few years now (maybe 4 or so) I have been seeing KT Tape on runner friends and I have always wondered about it, I even bought a pack on sale once just in case I would need it. I never opened it, it was the original KT Tape in the neon pink color, then I lost it somewhere when I started having some aches. Luckily BibRave gave me the opportunity to try out an array of products from KT Tape and just in time too!

Back at the beginning of January I started getting some medial shin splints in my left leg and I was unsure of how it happened. I have been training nearly the same way as a year ago and hadn’t experienced any shin issues during that time so I was confused. Inner shin pain after I finished a run when I was just walking around started to really freak me out, I thought for sure it was the dreaded stress fracture. I continued running and even ran a marathon and two halfs with the pain until I changed up the shoes I wore to work. That made a huge difference but I digress, I started using KT Tape when it was sent to me, first the gentle tape (my skin tone and softer than the pro tape) but my application was all wrong and decided to take it off after one run. The Gentle tape is useful to use for a day or two and very discreet to wear as it is similar looking to an ace bandage in the color but works stronger than any ace bandage. I think it would be especially useful for carpal tunnel taping since it is less noticeable in an office setting.Ā  The KT pro tape all comes in a handy plastic box that will keep it safe when you throw it in your gym bag, very helpful for athletes on the go.

Next I tried out the KT pro Tape and got the application right for my specific aches and it worked like a dream, I wore it for 3-4 days before it started to slightly peel off and get some fraying from showers/drying. I thought it might take forever to dry after a shower but that tape dries very quickly and if you are in a rush I read that you can dry it even quicker with a blow dryer on the cool setting. I wear compression sleeves usually after my long/hard effort runs and did not want soaking tape under the sleeves but it never was an issue. It dried so quickly I did not even think about it. Due to the taping of my current issue it wasn’t so noticeable either. A lady that I am helping train in a couch to 5k program at work said she noticed but it was pretty discreet and wanted to know more about the tape. And that was when I was wearing the Pro tape in sonic blue! I gave her a rundown of the following info. Also if you need to remove the tape after a day or so for some reason use baby oil or remove it while in the shower for an easier and painless removal because this tape really sticks!

Here’s a breakdown of the KT Tape products I was sent to try out:

GENTLE TAPE: 100% Latex Free Cotton with Gentle Adhesive, Lasts 1-3 Days
PROTM: Synthetic Tape Lasts 4-7 Days
PROTM WIDE: 4″ Wide Stripes Lasts 4-7 Days (still haven’t tried this one yet)
PRO EXTREMETM: Extra Strength Adhesive Lasts 4-7 but works well in hot/humid conditions (so Miami 95% of the time!)
ORIGINAL: Cotton Tape Lasts 1-3 Days and is very similar to the Gentle tape.

IMG_5524

I am still trying out the Pro Extreme as I write this review and it works just like the Pro Tape but seems like it will stay on longer and work better in the hot humid conditions of most of my Miami runs. I think it will be very useful this summer if I am still having these aches, which I do not anticipate but luckily I have a solution if I do.

Another thing I really like about KT Tape is that you can go on their YouTube channel and find out how to tape pretty much every possible ache/injury you have and the instructions are easy for any non medical person (like myself). I have a friend who is also a runner and has used KT Tape to help tape her friends before big half marathons. She is a true believer in the power of kinesiology tape in general and prefers to use KT Tape brand over other brands. In the recent years I have noticed more and more taped up runners at races than 5 years ago, so if that doesn’t convince you that it works I don’t know what to tell you.

305 Half Marathon – A Race Recap

Disclaimer: Iā€™m promoting 305 Half Marathon as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

IMG_4713

Race day attire (arm sleeves were not required)

Going into this race morning I was a bit tired, had ran the DRI hope for a cure 5k on Saturday morning and ended up taking my daughter into a pediatric urgent care later on for a fever after coughing for a week. Spent a few hours there and ended up leaving with antibiotics and nebulizer liquid for her with instructions to give her treatment every 4-6 hrs and bring her back immediately for anymore fevers. Exhausted and not going to sleep till closer to 10:30pm, I woke up at 3:30am to get ready and head to the 305 Half Marathon. Luckily I had laid out my clothing/shoes and race bag was ready to go so I basically just got up, jumped in my clothes and ate some cereal before heading out.

 

By some miracle we had cool weather at the start, I was debating on checking a bag or not but ultimately changed my mind, also changed my mind about needing arm sleeves for the race (good choice!) I did sit in my car for awhile in my Every Mother Counts hoodie to wait as long as possible before heading out into the cool weather. This wasn’t the 55 degree weather was predicted originally on the weather channel app but rather 60-62 degrees. Not bad but when the wind whipped through the buildings/hotels on South Beach it could feel quite nippy. Not bad though as usually this race is quite warm or even kind of rainy, in the past 6 years, this has been the coldest it’s been for this race. So I basically walked quickly to the port o potties and peed before meeting up with another running friend, Stephanie (TheCookieRunner) at the Miami Beach clock and she gave me a cool Momentum bracelet that would remind me later in the race to Just Breathe. We talked for a little bit and then I headed into the starting corral, where it was warmer with all the people crowded in. Talked to my friend, Carmen before the start and vowed that I would try to stick with the 2 hour pacer as long as possible. Starting I felt fresh and the cool air helped me in staying ahead of the 2 hour pacer at least for the first 7 miles of the race. They gave the pacers speakers filled with Miami/running related songs and just general anthems to pump you up: PitBull, Enrique Iglesias, Beyonce, Cake, AC/DC to name a few I heard while running with the group. At mile 6 I saw our Every Mother Counts South Florida ambassador, Esther and was cheered on by her. I think the ascend up the MacArthur Causeway slowed me down a bit but then a friendly cheer from my friend/mayor, Harolyn around mile 10 helped me get back out of my head and speed up a little for the final 5k of the race. Along the way lots of iRun runners were cheering us on and at the end Frankie Ruiz was running back to find his fiance to cross the line together, got a high five from him as I passed. Then Hector from iRun was about half a mile from the finish line and urged me to go faster, so I followed his instructions and sped up to even kick it up a bit and not let some other runner (guy) pass me at the finish line!

Something I did different during this race that I haven’t done before in a half marathon was not take in any nutrition. I think it helped that I had half of a bowl from Chipotle the night before and cereal race morning that helped fuel my race. I brought my Honey Stinger chews with me but never took them out of my back pocket of my awesome pocket full Oiselle pocket jogger shorts. So weird but somehow it worked, I do train with them generally and use the starting at mile 6 but this time I just didn’t need them.

I crossed the line in just under 2 hours, like literally 40 seconds or so before the 2 hour mark, I pushed at the end a little and my splits show it but I did not feel totally depleted. The course was slightly different at the end, which I did not realize until we were running it, I’m glad because that running straight into the blazing sun at South Point Pier is no fun after 12 miles!Ā  Right after the finish line after collecting your medal and water there was a pots and pans PR station where you could hit the pots and pans together in celebration for a new half marathon PR. I had no PR but saw a couple people taking advantage of hitting the pans. It’s been a couple years since Miami has celebrated in the streets with pots and pans from a Heat championship win or Castro death, haha So some folks were very eager to hit them. After that was a long line to take pic in front of the official finisher backdrop, but I had no time to stand in the line but I think it would’ve been nice to get that free photo. I got some pretzels and the food tent had the regular runner food: bananas, fruit cups, pretzels, cookies, bagels and then pastelitos, empandas and some other little hispanic dessert cups. Very cool but I was not really in the mood to eat anything and no sweets after the race. I really just wanted to get home to my sick toddler and get some rest time. I went to the Storm Series tent and collected my category 4 medal before looking around at the other sponsor tents and then heading back to the car. Took a couple pics first and headed back to the finish line for a cool pic of my medal when Frankie Ruiz and Carla Duenas were crossing the finish line together, caught a few pics and then headed back to the parking garage. The weather was awesome for the cool down walk back to the parking garage, almost a mile away. Did not have the extreme soreness when I got home and got out of my car after sitting down and driving for 25 minutes from South Beach like I was expecting.

Great race and afterwards got an email from Athlinks to remind me to claim my new half marathon result and check out my pictures later on that evening. If you do not already use Athlinks, you need to get create a profile and add all your race results from the past.

pjuractive 2skin – anti chafe gel review

Disclaimer: I received some samples of pjuractive 2skin to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!

IMG_3671

I used to be shocked about chafing issues before I had a baby and then after I learned really quickly how horrible chafing really was. I also used to wear capris for running before I was pregnant so that probably deterred some possible chafing. I learned postpartum what kind of chafing could happen when running in the hot, humid nearly year round Miami weather. Not sure what changed post baby besides my body but possibly the fact that I was exposing more skin than before. Either way I discovered it a few months after having my daughter on a particularly toasting late summer/early fall morning run. I always wear Oiselle bras and decided to wear the team bra for this 13.1 training run to see if I could wear it under my singlet for an upcoming half marathon. I had not had any issues prior with my Oiselle bras and chafing but when I took off my tank top I could see raw red skin and when I jumped in the shower, ouch! It was then that I discovered I had to do something about this chafing thing that I never had experience with before.

 

Of course I tried all the typical stuff that I could find at Target or the pharmacies but everything would rub off or sweaty away after more than 5 miles. I was really beginning to think that perhaps I was stuck just incurring under bra chafe scars forever, and in Miami there is rarely a cool weather run where you don’t sweat. I don’t have chafing issues when its cold out but this fall/winter there was only one week of 50 degree weather here and even then I was sweating. I do a lot of treadmill early morning runs so I can keep an eye on my daughter while she is still sleeping and the treadmill is outside on a patio. So I get all the warmth of humid mornings and sweat more than running on the streets so I was starting to get some crazy chafing from my armband where I keep my phone to track my miles.

Then this January I got the opportunity to review this anti chafing product so I jumped, or really ran at the chance in hopes that I could finally be pain free in the shower after a training run/race. At first I was very skeptical about how it would work and if it would work but I am happy to report that it does work, better than anything I have used in the past.

IMG_3967

First trial run – a short 3 miler in the late afternoon – figured I should try it a few times before I used it for Miami Marathon a few weeks later. Worked well for the warm day.

Second trial – humid morning treadmill run – 7 miles – longer run than usual wearing a singlet/tank that usually can get pretty chafe friendly when it is warm, finished with no arm chafing and no thigh chafing.

Third trial –Ā  Miami Marathon, basically 26.2 miles of warm and windy running conditions. I failed to realize that I needed to put the 2skin under the bottom of where my phone armband lies and missed a spot under my opposite arm and boy did I realize it on that post race shower! Oooouch! Everywhere else that it was applied had no issues and no chafe burns but those spots that I missed did. I also let my boyfriend use some of my small trial pack on his chest, men get the bloody nipples issue during marathons often and especially in the humid weather. He usually uses medical tape because the other anti chafe stuff does not work well for him either, anyways he did not have any bloody nipples at the end of the race and he was out there on the course even longer than I was. So men, it works for preventing the bloody nipple thing too!

 

Fourth trial – A1A half marathon this past weekend. I hadn’t really been running too much in the past few weeks so for the short runs sometimes I would skip using it but for this race I knew I had to apply it liberally. The weather report was showing 71 at the start and quickly getting warmer as the hours passed so I applied the 2skin to my arm where I failed to for the marathon a few weeks earlier and under my arm where I had gotten chafed also. This half marathon was even warmer than Miami Marathon and super humid at the start with some drizzly weather in the first couple miles and I got no chafing whatsoever! Hooray! Finally found the winner for anti chafe gel that I have been looking for now for almost 3 years! I brought the small pump bottle along with me in my race bag for this race and I will keep that bottle in my race bag until it runs out and I have to buy more! Luckily you do not need to use a lot to get the job done šŸ™‚

I haven’t ever done a triathlon but from what I have read on the pjuractive website and other reviews about this product is that it is great to use for this multi sport event. Maybe one day I will do one and would definitely be using this product for that kind of race.

This is how it works! It’s long lasting and does not block your pores and all that is required to remove it from your skin is soap and water and most likely you will be using that after a run/sweat session/race anyhow! Want more technical info, check this link for more info about 2skin.
