I Must Be Sick
I elected to skip the race today in light of having to buy my son, my husband, and a nephew and a niece birthday present. Already having signed up for two races this month something had to give so it was the race I had not signed up for yet. I was okay with this, though it does seem strange for me. I am a little sad about missing out, especially when I heard about all the really great prizes they had, but okay with my decision all the same. Instead I went for a 7 mile run, visited some with my Mom and then spent the bulk of the day putting away laundry and cleaning house. Not nearly as fun as racing a 5k!
This was what I was going to wear to the race today, but instead wore just for a semi long run. One week until the half marathon. :)
Here are some pictures from my run today
I also started reading this book yesterday. It is HUGE. I have been waiting to read this book since I read the first four in the series five years ago. I have since reread the first four books three times and am so excited about this one. I hope it lives up to expectations! Has anyone else read it or ay of the other books in the Fire and Ice Series? They made it into a show on HBO which I of course don't get and am too cheap to pay for so I haven't seen it :(
Cant wait to read everyone's race reports from today and tomorrow.
Also don't forget about my giveaways HERE and HERE if you haven't already entered!
