It’s that time of the month…
I’d tell you that on a whim, I signed up for a new 5k in Brooklyn.
Yes it was hard to get up at 5:30 am, stand all day and after work take the subway, LIRR and another subway to get to the race on time and run a 5k. But I kinda enjoyed it. Esp the post race ice cream.
Now I am glad that I signed for this one in Brooklyn too:
Ever run mid-week races?
I’d tell you that I am abandoning my winter race-cation in Florida (I haven’t broken the news to my Florida friends) in favor of a new adventure.
Yup a sunset 2 miler and the next day a half marathon. MCM Mama couldn’t have put it better. https://mcmmamaruns.com/5-reasons-to-run-zooma-bermuda/
Anyone else running this race? I’d love to meet up.
I’d tell you that I feel like an empty-nester. I had FOUR half marathons and TWO 15k races from February-June.
Now NOTHING big – NADA – until September. Just a few 5k races in July and August.
I feel lost. Don’t be surprised if I find something longer to run.
Do you struggle with an off season and no big races on the horizon for several months or do you enjoy the down time?
I’d tell you that I just zipped through Marathon Women by Kathrine Switzer. I knew so little about her other than she was technically the first to run the Boston Marathon and that she was fast.
What an amazing lady and runner!
I couldn’t put the book down..and now I want to know about the rest of her life (after 1984).
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think?
I’d tell you that I will never run a trail race (I am TOO competitive to slow down) but I am intrigued by trails (though mosquitoes and ticks are a turn off).
We have quite a few local group runs on trails but I always seem to be out of town when they are scheduled. I ran one and it was fun.
There’s still hope that I’ll get to do some trail running and I even bought a (cheap) pair of trail shoes. (they were $59 but got them free – since at the outlets, I bought my hubby two pairs of tennis shoes).
It’s also Friday so I’m also linking up with Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five linkup! Join in! Don’t forget to link back to your hostess and visit some other bloggers.
Happy Running! Got anything to spill? Share it here!
