Gotta love fall festivities like carving pumpkins...... but, sheesh, it is Oct 15th today!!! Where is October going?!? Is it just me or is the month flying by?
The below capris and tights were on a Facebook running group that I follow..... how cool are these?!?! I so need the ones that say "Every Day I'm Hustling'!" Love them!!!!! They are found at jumpinjacksplat.com
So, as those who routinely follow this blog, I was sick Thursday-Saturday and just got behind the eight ball from the start of the week. My energy level just hasn't been what it normally is! So, sadly, I haven't ran from Sunday to Today!!!!!!! This morning, I was bound and determine to get a run in sometime today!!!!!! This a.m. when my alarm clock went off, I just couldn't! So, I put on my compression socks and my sports bra under my work scrubs (always wear scrubs on walk-in clinic days) and I thought maybe get a run in at lunch........ I packed my running bag and had it in my car! Well, as the saying goes..."Best laid plans......" Yep, did not run at lunch. So, when I arrived at home, my son wanted to build his new lego stars wars ship.....so score! Yes, time to run! He sat in the same room building legos and singing songs to my playlist....LOL! If he didn't know the words, he made them up! HA!HA! The below photo's credit goes to my 6 year old! He caught an "action shot."
I was able to get in 3 miles.... I will rest tomorrow (I always rest on Friday) and then Saturday I am running a local 5K. Sunday, I will plan on a long run..... suppose to run 10, but we will see what happens. These days, I am just winging it!
Of course, prior to going inside to run on treadmill, my son needed to get some energy out by jumping on the trampoline! Sheesh, the twist and flips kids do on trampolines make me nervous! But he has great fun! Hopefully no future ER visits :-/
So, as October flies by, the Road race that I helping organize if coming near!!! The below are proofs of the medals.... I think they should look awesome!!!!
This is actually the package that was delivered today with the medals and trophies. I will open tomorrow..... about of time tonight for anything else. I ordered from Crown Awards... but with all the hectic things going on now that the road race is near, I got a GREAT laugh out of this sticker on the box.... "Crown delivers Happiness"... hmmmm, is that a reference to crown and coke?!?!? LOL! LOL! LOL! Just kidding! Is this Crown Awards way of being funny to those organizing such events?!? Like you need a drink with all the craziness? HA! HA!
Well, I need to turn in for the night. I have to say, I am glad I got my run in today.... I feel like my life is perhaps returning back to normal. Amazing how a few days of feeling under the weather can derail your run training.... UGH!!! But, that is life!
How is your week?
Any fun fall activities?
