Weekly Run Down – 6.3.19-6.9.19: Another week, another 5k


Last Week –

  • Monday – Although I did run the two days prior, it was not raining and I was meeting a friend for a later dinner, so I squeezed in a few miles on the trail trail.

  • Tuesday Finally a rest day but I did sub for a friend and played tennis (in the group I used to play in on Tuesdays). I hadn’t played since Florida but it was still fun catching up with friends on the court and afterwards at dinner.

  • Wednesday – Ice Cream group run #1 and Global Running Day.

You know I am all over anything that includes ice cream. Just in case, I did bail on the run since thunderstorms were predicted, I walked my Virtual Run during lunch.

The rain did hold off. But it was very humid and the ice cream was a welcome post-run treat.

there are few things better than running with friends + ice cream

  • Thursday – Another rest day due to a much needed hair appt. I did get in a pre-work and lunch time walk.

  • Friday – A quick run after work and before my weekly mah jongg game.

at the Corning Bike trail along the Hudson R. A steamy run but not complaining. Better than cold and rain.

  • Saturday – Many 5ks to choose from today but I decided instead of running to volunteer at a race.  My fellow Sole Sister, Chris, was hosting a water stop at her house (which was on the race course).  It was so rewarding to participate in this way (I need to volunteer more often) and the post race barbecue rocked, as well.

  • Sunday – I have race fever.  Two races today. First the Betar Byway 5k followed by the Moreau Mile.  Both I have already run in the past but several years ago. It was a beautiful course but holy hills!

a hard race but won my age group in BOTH races (though I didn’t stay to get my medals) – love the tech tank in purple

After the race, I headed up North to go boating with the hubby. It was a gorgeous day to relax on the water in the sun!!

and I did change into my bathing suit and went into the water for about a sec. Brrrr

  1. You are such a busy gal! I love all your bright & colorful running gear! I just saw a 5K/10K (next month) that also features a 1-mile race…I’m tempted! Thanks for linking with us 😉

    • I know. You’re like me. Racing is the bomb.

      You get it. It’s important to run good and if you don’t, at least you look good!

      And when it’s warm, you don’t have to cover up your clothes with all those layers.


  2. Congrats again for your wins. I also have the race fever but here the closer races are 1 hour far and hilly so it’s not easy to find the right one.
    Last but not least an “Ice Cream Group” would be perfect for my wife.

    • Ice cream can be a dinner option if you get in enough steps. Lol

      This is the only race that has another right after. Only 4 miles total. Not a big effort.


  3. I love that you chose to spend your time volunteering! That’s almost just as good as running the actual race!

    You had an amazing week an dit looks like the weather was incredible! Can’t beat that!

    I’ve got a 10K in Boston in a few weeks, and I’m really excited about it!

    • Volunteering is important. I need to do it more often.

      Boston. You’re coming up north. How exciting.

      You need to plan a NYC trip.
