Preface. The below list might lead you to believe that I love racing. I don’t, but I do love running. Even more, I love training. I use races as an opportunity to get in some miles, with friends, water stops, and cheering crowds. Occasionally I will give it my all, but not often. I hate the recovery/down time. I also don’t have a competitive spirit. I like to do my best, but I have zero desire to beat someone else. So…I often pace groups or keep a friend company for their race. Anyways…here’s my schedule for the remainder of the year:
1 The Franklin Classic 10k/5k (this is the 1st time I’m planning to race both distances)
6 The East Kentucky Half Marathon (a good excuse to visit my Nana)
15 Viva la Diva 10k (this one gets a maybe)
27 Boulevard Bolt 5 Miler
14 Peeler Park Trail 6 Miler (maybe)
Looking like a rockstar during my teeth cleaning and 6 month check up at the dentist.
If I’m home for lunch, I eat this salad…like every day. It’s been years and it never gets old. That’s not weird right? My husband likes to calculate the money I spend on mâché rosettes and strawberries per year. Today, I added peaches as well, because I like to live on the edge.
Speaking of husband, when he’s a way the wife will build a mountain of guacamole and call it dinner. This is a totally acceptable portion size, yes?!
And lastly, some avocado humor:)
What are some of your upcoming races?
Do you always race or do you run some just for fun?
