Happy Monday! It’s pretty dreary in my neck of the woods, but we had a fabulously warm weekend so I won’t complain about today…
Lexington Race Recap–
Saturday morning I woke up and decided to do the race… (nothing like waiting until the last minute). I got there early because I’m a nerd and like to be the first one there,registered, picked up my packed and got my number… than it became the waiting game. I debating doing this race because I’m still kind of recovering from the marathon, in addition, I’m not exactly in 5k shape either. I figured it would be either really good or really bad….As I started warming up I felt extremely flat and drained but I knew I could get through it.
I ran into a few people I knew, which is always nice because typically I don’t know anyone. It was very low key, like an on your mark, get set, go-type of race. It was also out and back race (which I typically avoid), and they didn’t stop traffic (which turns out to be annoying at mile 2). So the first half of the race was a slight decline, with a small loop then back to the main road where the race began…. the first half felt great, smooth…. then I as I was looping back around I got cut off by a car twice! It should have fueled me to do better, but it through me off…. I finally caught back up to this girl Jenn, but I was starting to feel sooo tired… Then a third girl came flying by us… I had nothing left….. so I looked at Jenn and told her to go get her…. I finished in 21:34. 6th person overall, 3rd girl overall, 1st in my age group. Not horrible but a little disappointing.
Last but not least…10 Day Challenge-2 Songs
This is sooo hard… how does one only pick two songs?! Honestly, I don’t even know. There are songs that have a certain significance to specific time periods…
This Yea’s Love- David Gray
This was our wedding song. We had a different sing picked out for a long time and when I heard this song, I knew that it was THE ONE.
This is old school. Literally, we use to rock out to this when I was a junoir in HIGH SCHOOL! I still love it. It’s one of my favorite songs to run to, it has a great beat and nice bass.
If you only could choose two songs what would they be?
How as your weekend?!
