Happy Workout Wednesday! Today, I am doing a recap of sorts of Veteran’s Day racing, Birthday runs and fun from the last few days. First off, thanks so much for all of the birthday wishes! Way to make a girl feel special.
Veteran’s Day & Birthday Runs & Fun
The last few Veteran’s Days, I have been participating in a small 10K race that benefits local charities. This year, the On Eagles Wings 10K fit in just perfectly with my goal of running a 10K every week in November. I roped in a few of my MRTT buddies to join me and we were off on this hilly run.
Gotta love a Friday morning race right! Number 3 of 4 November 10K’s in the books. More on what I am learning racing every weekend coming soon. I also really like doing a race right around my birthday as it kind of makes me feel not as old!
I am all for stretching out the birthday fun so I invited some friends over Sunday morning for a hill run and brunch. Boy did we hit some hills! We certainly earned our potluck breakfast of healthy frittatas, oatmeal and fruit. Oh and maybe a few mimosas.
Monday was my actual birthday and my running group set up a fun girls day out complete with pedicures and lunch at one of my favorite salad places. Just love these ladies! They really know how to make a girl feel special and loved.
Yup it was a double cake day for me! My husband and kids had my favorite yellow cake and chocolate frosting dessert waiting for me along with some beautiful flowers. A busy and fun week indeed! Today is my husband’s birthday so I may be forced to eat more cake 🙂
Next up: Girls on The Run 5K race this Sunday.
Tell me-Do you like to race on your birthday? What’s up next on your race calendar?
