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?
