Hey there! How was your weekend, did you have any awesome workouts, did you do something new you’ve never done before? I certainly can’t complain about mine!
Thursday afternoon, I signed up to race the Race 13.1 Midtown 10k Saturday morning, my 4th time running the series.
There is no way to beat around the bush when describing this race aside from the fact that it is exceptionally well run, the course is a B! It finishes up a steep .7 mile hill. And it hurts, a lot.
I’ll post a full recap soon, but here are the highlights: for the first and only time in my life, I can say I came in 2nd overall (it’s a very slow race) as exciting as that was, I missed the qualifying time for the top seed in the Gate River run by.4 seconds. yes, .4 seconds, not 4 seconds!
The craziest thing about the race was how tired I was the rest of the day. It felt as though I race further than a 10k. After hitting up Target, Costco, and Trader Joe’s it took every ounce of will power I had to pry myself off of the pool chair (yes I was at the pool in mid-September) celebrate a friend’s birthday and watch Florida….well let’s not talk about that :/
Instead, let’s talk about this dog.
This not-so little guy is a Mastiff/Poodle mix. Never. In my life have I seen a dog like this, or heard of the bread! The craziest part, the breeder told the owner when he was a puppy that he could grow up to be anywhere between 45 and 125 pounds! One guess what end of the spectrum he ended up on ;)
Sunday kicked off with a 5 mile shake out run, followed by the usual food prep, chores, and lunch with the best
A healthy lunch was needed as I spent a large part of the lovely, sunny Sunday afternoon waiting catching up on my blog reading….
It’s one way to pass the time while waiting for your name to be called at AT&T to find out how to trade in your phone for the new iphone 6! After 2.5 years, I handily dropped my 4s, shattering the screen the day the 6 came out, dropping it’s trade in value from $200 to $50. Ahhhhh well!
Are you an iphone user? Are you going to get the 6? What color?
Have you ever heard of a Mastiff/Poodle?
