Well hello there! How was the weekend? It’s never long enough…thankfully this work week for me is rather short and then on to Christmas break!
This weekend was filled with some fun things, including the Jog’r Egg Nog’r 5K! The night before the race I went out and had a little fun with the girls…this girl also teaches a rockin’ cycle class and is super duper awesome. Good times.
I was up the next morning bright and early for the race which took place at White Rock Lake. This was the third time in a row I’ve done this series, and the last 2 years I ran the 15K. This year I wanted to play with speed a little bit so I decided to rock out the 5K! I entered the Athena division…that is women over 150 lbs…and no I am not ashamed to say I am in that category, thankyouverymuch. I figured there was a great chance I would place if I rocked the Athena!
I am woman, hear me roar…or something like that.
The race started off right at 9 am and we were off! I did not wear my Garmin for this race…actually forgot to charge it but I was glad I left it at home! I just ran by feel and enjoyed the pretty views of the lake. It was over before I knew it! I finished solid at 24:00. 1st place in my category! Woot!! I was excited to place in this race for the 3rd year in a row. Still got it, baby.
I just couldn’t do the egg nog this year…I know, awful…too much vino from the night before didn’t quite mix, bahaha.
The rest of Saturday was fairly low key, I met up with a friend for lunch and then took it easy the rest of the day. Enjoying having the down time from running lots of miles before gearing up to coach another training season over at Luke’s Locker! I hope to be coaching the speed/track session along with teaching my spin classes at the gym. It should be fun.
Sunday I went to a friend’s holiday brunch! Brought these fancy cupcakes.
Good times chatting with these ladies
She had a nice little spread at her house too. Yummy treats galore. I worked off a few of them this morning in my cycle class. Now I’m ready to attack this short work week.
Have a great week…and remember to keep on praying for the families and those affected by that tragic incident on Friday. Hug your family members and friends a little tighter today and tell them how much you love them.
How was your weekend? Are you done with your Christmas shopping yet?
Finished mine last night
