Birthday & Let Freedom Run

Sunday, July 05, 2015

Last week was a pretty great week. It was my bday and one of my favorite holidays The Fourth of July. emoticon

DH took me out to dinner & a movie for my bday, we went and saw Jurassic World, which was pretty good. He also go me one of those fancy Ninja mixers. I had asked for one to make more healthy shakes and what not. Looking forward to putting it to good use!

Saturday was my July run with my running buddies. We did our local "Let Freedom Run" 5K. The run preceded the local Fourth of July parade, so there was a good crowd cheering us on and little kids handing out high fives. The run didn't start until about 0915. While it wasn't very humid and there was a nice breeze the sun was OUT! It was a pretty warm run. I didn't run well at all.. meaning my time was one of the slowest 5k's I've had in quite awhile. Time to start getting back out and running, I've taken alot of days off lately. Hopefully this was my wake up call.

Up next I think we'll be doing the Alamo Beer Challenge Race #1. It's a race series to get you prepped for the RnR in December.
