This weekend was a whirlwind of fun and I can’t believe it’s already the dreaded Monday again. 🙂 I wish we had three day weekends every weekend…I guess I’ll survive today if I reminisce about my fabulous weekend to you fine folks.
Firday night the boyfriend and I went to a comedy show with another couple and laughed til it hurt! Seriously, improv comedy is some awesome entertainment!
We also met up with the other fitnesscrEATure for some fun at a local bar.
Saturday morning, I ran the Run or Dye 5K race, Atlanta style, with a lovely pal of mine CA! I won’t lie – I was hurting from the night before but I made it through! It was an awful lot like the Color Run but I enjoyed this one a lot more than the Color Run. CA was smart and shielded her eyes but I was not smart and had lots of blue and green eye gunk all up in there.
We also both couldn’t explain how this happened….
What was the point of wearing shoes? Ha!
After that, I spent the rest of the day lounging and relaxing – it has finally been nice enough weather in Atlanta to use a pool! 🙂 WOO HOO!
And yesterday, I began my day with a 10 mile run. It got tougher as it warmed up outside but I was really pleased with how I finished.
Lately work has been incredibly stressful and my runs haven’t been a means of relief like they usually are, either. I find myself thinking about work and letting it stress me out around the clock, including during my runs. Yesterday’s run, though, was the first one in a few weeks where I really just let myself relax and enjoy my surroundings. I didn’t think about what kind of stress I’m enduring or how fast I was running – I just went with what I felt. I was so grateful to have that time to recharge and relax, because after all, that’s what I count on running to do for me!
It didn’t hurt that I was running in my new Lululemon running skirt, either. I’m officially addicted to that stuff!
And my fellow fitnesscrEATure also got in 10 miles yesterday too! So proud of her and can’t wait to run our half in less than two weeks!
One last note – sometimes, y’all, life is just too darn hard to do anything.
At least that’s what he thinks. Dogs lead tough lives, don’t they?
What was your favorite event from this weekend?
What are you training for, if anything?
What kind of fun runs have you done?
