It’s been a while since I posted. Haven’t been running that much lately, some short runs here and there. I have gone to a couple spinning classes at Cycledelic at 12 corners Brighton. Although spinning just really isn’t my favorite, it’s nice to do something different and I love trying new placess via Groupons, or in this case Amazon local deal. What really got me there was that one of my favorite yoga instructors was the instructor here. Talk about being made feel welcome & motivated!
Anyway, I did run the Johnny’s run like hell 5k last weekend. I wasn’t really feeling into it, in fact I laid down for a sec right when it was time to go. We had a sitter & plans to go out after, so I almost considered just skipping the run and going right for the beers, but knew I ‘d feel better doing the run.
Checked in & had a Guinness to get me going
Then went out & ran. 29:51. What a fun race, tons of people in costumes. I was kind of in a grumpy funk but running with lots of people on a beautiful fall day got me right out of that.
We had a great night afterward too
This morning was the Pumpkins in the Park 5k. Not sure of my time, it was quite the moosh at the start & finish. But again wasn’t feeling that great, this time a slight cold & it was drizzly out. But getting out there & doing it made me feel better. This is the benefit of being signed up for a race. I knew it was a day I would not be out running if not for the race.
It was a really fun atmosphere. We brought the dog and he was a hit with all the kids! and made other doggie friends
Matty ran the kids race. It was chaotic at the start, but a fun little jaunt & the kids came through the finish & then got to pick up a pumpkin, candy & a hot wheels. Very nice prizes for the kids!
Later the kids had a costume party at the school
Have a great Halloween! Here’s to hoping Sandy (Hurricane) doesn’t wreck it for us!!
