|Friday on my way home from work!|
The alarm clock went off at 6 a.m. and J almost had to literally push me out of bed. Once I was up, I was good to go. It was still a little warm, but nothing compared to what it would be later in the day -
There weren't too many cars at the trailhead when I got there so the trail was nice and quiet. I stretched myself out and started my run. I think I found the perfect run/walk interval ratio for myself. I did well with a 2:00/1:00 interval. I've tried running as far as I can right out of the gate, but I find that once I'm out of steam it's really hard to recover and get my momentum back, so I'll be sticking with this method for now. Once I hit the halfway point, I paused my run and took a few pictures of my surroundings. The clouds were probably my favorite picture
|Beautiful morning for a run|
|Halfway point - time to turn around!|
I've seen quite a few of the bloggers I follow participate in a Foodie Pen Pal program that Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean hosts. It sounds like a pretty neat program, but intimidating at the same time! Some of the items that people have sent look amazing and I worry that I will disappoint the person I'm matched up with. We get our monthly pen pal on Thursday so hopefully this will be a success and I will continue to participate.
Sharon and I signed up for a virtual 5K for this week that benefits the Wounded Warrior project. We're planning to meet up tomorrow morning to get it done. We considered doing it over the weekend but since we need to get one more long run in before our 10K on the 15th, we opted that midweek would make more sense.
I want to say congratulations to my blogger friend Bethi over at Disney Mommi, on welcoming her new princess, Claudia, into the world yesterday!
Tonight J and I are headed to Turner Field to watch the Braves play the Chicago Cubs, and then maybe a pool day for the 4th along with some tasty (and healthy!) eats for dinner.
Good luck to everyone running the Peachtree Road Race tomorrow morning! I hope to join you next year :)
Got fun plans for the 4th?
Until next time,
