I'm feeling pretty tuckered at the moment. The weather has been so lousy here that my level of endurance is not what it has been for running. Meaning, I haven't been =( Still the race today was so much fun. It was quite the event for a small 5k. Two thousand people showed up! It was a Valentine's Day run called Love 'em or Leave 'em. Pre-race we joined the sea of runners which included their dogs and kids in strollers. Everyone was so friendly and it was so easygoing.
Here's a list of the music I ran to on my iPod:
Weapon of Choice--Fatboy Slim
Juicy------------ Better Than Ezra
Eye of the Tiger--Survivor
Move Along--------The All American Rejects
Is it Any Wonder--Keane
Better Days------ Goo Goo Dolls
Fidelity--------- Regina Spector
Here we are post race...
Can I just say that by the time Eye of the Tiger started I felt like throwing air punches like Rocky? Don't worry I contolled myself.
Interesting Observation: Less than half a mile to the finish I saw some friends of mine who had already finished. They started screaming like crazy for me. I felt such a surge of energy just because of their encouragement to me. I was surprised at how helpful that was...kind of reminded me of how the Bible talks about the great cloud of witnesses who are cheering for us on earth. Wow.
Afterward it was free everything...coffee from Starbucks, fresh fruit, candy, water, lots of fun party favor stuff. Awesome. Next month we are planning to do the St. Pat's Day Dash and beat our lousy times. Seems people will take any opportunity they can to set up a race!
I just finished making play dough tonight for the kids tomorrow. I'm hungry now...so I'm off to make dinner. Ciao! (Ha!)
(p.s. spell check still doesn't work... so sorry for any mistakes. Grrrrrrrrrr)
