Easy 4

After taking a week off from running, cuz I can, I decided to lace up the sneakers and head out for a nice 4 mile run. The weather has been perfect these last three days so it was absolutely gorgeous out there this evening, and the bonus was, of course, it still being light outside when I headed out. I did my 4 miles easily enough, although that wind was a bit rough heading towards home but I will take that over the freaking humidity that is to come real soon.

I was thinking how easy it would be to push the running to the wayside since I have no race to continue working towards. I was even contemplating signing up for the Chicago Rock n Roll Half, but it's on August Chicago. Um, hello, it's hot in Chicago in August-I know, I lived there! Also, my bff is getting married the following month so that sounds like one too many plane tickets for this household. Unless they are super cheap....

So, I think I will keep shopping around for a race to sign up for cuz I think I need that long-term goal to keep pushing myself. Otherwise, these short runs will be all that I force myself to do out there. After all, floating in the pool is always going to win over running when summer hits.

Princess Race Pics

Right around 4am. We are smiling and haven't killed eachother yet (although there were threats).

Still Happy! Cuz we're freaking tired!!!

Hooray for Bling!

I think the Powerade got to me....

Recovery drinks

Ah...the last sip is gone

The race was a blast and I will definitely do another one. I've already been trying to figure out my next choice but there are just so many out there and I have become a spoiled Disney runner. The Food and Wine Half Marathon is in October but I have a wedding the weekend before so not sure if this will be the next one or not. If not, there's always the Princess race next year!
