Thank you all for the birthday wishes the past few days. I am happy to report that my birthday week came and went without the addition of another grey hair! Every year around my birthday, I have this over whelming urge to prove how young and invincible I am. LOL Sound familiar?
I love to do a race right around my birthday and thankfully Veteran’s Day falls in the same week which is a great opportunity. This year, my MRTT friends and I participated in a rare Wednesday 10k to honor the occasion.
It was a beautiful warm November day and we all took some time to appreciate all of those who have served for our country.
Of course we love to cheer each other on in true MRTT form with a wave line at the finish. I love this “Moms Salute This Town” tank and whip it out a few times a year.
So many of my MRTT moms came out on Saturday morning for my official birthday run followed by breakfast. What a great way to start out my birthday! Love all these girls
Headed to downtown DC that night for a nice dinner with my 2 favorite guys.
Perfect way to spend my birthday!
Knock on wood-my foot and plantar issues of earlier this year seem to be better for now. I have been adding back on the miles and feeling really great about my running.
So in true “me” fashion, I started signing up for tons of races. Next week I have a Thanksgiving Day 10k and a Girls on The Run 5k this weekend. I have signed up for an indoor tri in January and I am hoping to get into Cherry Blossom this April. I am about to register for a relay race and a half marathon. Someone stop me!
Are you motivated to sign up for races around your birthday or right after coming back from an injury?
