Yes, that is what I told myself this weekend. Stop being lazy and get out there and run. Last week was my spring break and I did NOT run at all. So Saturday morning came and I was in bed for almost an hour debating about whether to go running or not. I checked the weather channel and saw that temperature around Midway airport was around 40 degrees. Hmm, pretty good running weather. So, I got my lazy butt up, changed, and out the door I went.
I was so glad I got up. It felt so good to run. 🙂 It was a bit windy but I took my time. I forgot my Garmin watch so I had no idea on pace or finish time. Oh, I ran 4 miles.
Today I was supposed to meet up with a friend to run again but he did not show up. Well, that did not stop me and I made my way to the airport and ran 4 miles again. Loved it!! I will run again tomorrow after school and then a few more days this week.
Next Sunday (April 10) will be my first race (8K) of the year. I will be running in the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle and I am so excited. I love this race! I have been running this race for about 5 years and every year I improve my finish time. Last year it was 52:18 so I am determined to beat that time again.
Once that race is over then it is another race almost every weekend or every other weekend. Yay!!! I will be signing up for the Y-Me Race at Your Pace on May 8 and maybe the Cinco de Miler on May 7. You see my nephew is making his first communion on May 7 and I will probably miss the mass. The race is at 9:30 am and the mass is at noon. Who schedules a race so late in the day? I asked him if he would be upset if I did not make it and he said that it would be OK. There is still time to register so for now I won’t worry about it.
What do you think? Should I run at the race or miss it and go to the first communion mass?
