It was so nice to have some gorgeous weather to run in last week! I did one of my runs on the treadmill, but the other two were outside and wonderful.
On Saturday I went to the ZOOMA Kick Off Party at Charm City Run Annapolis. It was SO nice having some running buddies! I spent most of my time running with Cynthia from You Signed up for What?! Guys, she is seriously the nicest person ever. She even stuck with me when I got the most horrific cramp at the end of our run. For a girl who never gets side stitches, I sure have been getting a lot the week before my race. My sides better get themselves in check! It was a beautiful day and it was fun chatting with some of the other girls there and sipping yummy coffee and mimosas! I talked with Cynthia and Colleen from Live Free and Run for a while and met Mar from Mar on the Run. It was fun getting to meet them after following their blogs! There were so many amazing ladies I wish I had time to get to know them all better! We got lots of goodies to take with us on our way out. Another win for ZOOMA!
Maddux and I headed to the park afterwards, but cut our walk there short when I got a text from my nice friend saying that he could explore Great Falls with us! We quickly headed down to Virginia and had a great (although muddy) afternoon. I had one tired pup by the end of the day!
|Yes, he sleeps beside his bed.|
On Sunday Maddux and I headed to one of my favorite trails and walked for a long time before I headed out for a neighborhood run. I'm not sure what was going on, but even though it was really nice out I just wasn't feeling this run. I think I'm just ready for Race Day!
It's hard to believe that in just a few days it will all be over! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! I have one more 5 miler standing between the race and me!
