A weekend of great running and some motivation


Well last week was a bit of a long week,  I didn't do nearly as much running as I would have liked, but between picking up an extra day of work and the stomach bug that went through my house there wasn't a lot of time.  My turn for the bug was on Friday, and I laid around feeling sorry for myself most of the day.  My son was home with me on Friday also and we watched Return to Lonesome Dove (nearly all 7 hours), played cribbage and slept a lot.

I did get in a 5 mile run on Saturday, but kept it short since I had been feeling sick the day before and noticed I still lacked a bit of energy.

I am starting out the week better already as Cola and I got in a good run yesterday and ran half of it on trails. I have also been taking my Dad's dog Roscoe running with us as my Dad is recovering from getting a new hip and his dog is bored!

Cola and Roscoe have a lot of fun running together.  It is however very hard to get a picture of the two of them together.

My little cowgirl lost her second tooth yesterday on the way home from town.  First she got it stuck in a straight out position though.  I tried to get a picture of it, but just didn't happen.  I had to borrow money from my son this morning for the tooth fairy.   At least I remembered!
 
sometimes we lose the trail and go where we want
In other news.. I have a 5k coming up on Thursday and I feel so not ready for it!  It is going to be a cold one! I think the high is supposed to be in the low thirties, but the race is at 9 am.  I do like running in the cold! 

and in case you need some motivation and haven't seen this story yet, this girl is amazing
 
Who else is racing on Thanksgiving Day?

  1. I kinda miss doing Turkey Trots! But we always spend Thanksgiving at my parents' house in the mountains, so there isn't a Turkey Trot within hours. Instead, mom and I always lace up and hit the trails in the morning before the cooking begins :)

  2. The stomach bug is sooo miserable--the only good thing is that it is quick, right? Enjoy your turkey trot on Thurs.!

  3. What a beautiful area to run. I am not running on Thanksgiving because there aren't any races where I'll be but I'll be cheering you on in spirit :)

  4. Running fast will warm you up :) Enjoy your race, a 5K will be over in a blink for you! I am not even sure of our Thanksgiving plans yet, so no racing for me.

  6. I just watched that video of Kayla a couple days ago. So inspiring! No racing on T-day for me but I usually run my own route:) Glad you are on the mend!

  7. I'll be running the 25th Annual GE Run Thru the Woods in The Woodlands, TX. It's a 5 miler. I've never run it, but it'll give me a chance to go visit my 93 year old mom and have turkey day lunch with her.

  10. Our turkey trot is the weekend before as they collect food donations. So no 5k for me that day. Good luck and enjoy!!

  11. I was surprised not to see snow! I thought half the US was covered in the stuff by now. Sorry to hear you were sick. My 5 yo is going through something right now. She slept until 1pm today! So far no one else has gotten it. Fingers crossed. Good luck on the 5k!
