Wow, it’s been a little over a week since I’ve blogged! I had a busy week with work and doing Climb to Conquer last weekend. Now, I have a three day weekend to relax, thank God!
So last weekend, I did Climb to Conquer Cancer with some friends and colleagues from work. It consisted of a 5.6 mile “hike” (walk) up the road to the top of South Mountain. There were over 4200 people that participated, so it was a really nice event!
This is the top at the finish line.
My friends Carmen and Drea at the 101.5 Jamz DJ tent.
Drea and Carmen on the bus (they had busses for the tired to take us back down to the bottom) We were really tired and hungry after our 5:30am wakeup call!
Me on the bus right before my little nappypoo. Totally brought back memories from junior high!
After the climb, we went to AZ Bread Co for breakfast, where I had an awesome Garden Frittata, a strawberry banana smoothie, and some coffee. Then I went home and took a nice long nap. There’s nothing better on a Saturday afternoon than eating a great meal after a race or an event, then going home and snuggling up in bed with my Tater Tot for a nap.
I had to work on Sunday, but still managed to sneak my long run in afterwards. I wasn’t planning on it when I got up Sunday, but by the end of the day, I was craving a good run! I ran 4 miles, and loved every second of it! I haven’t run that far without stopping in months. I did have a little bit of knee pain, but only about a 3 on a 1-10 pain scale. I came home, took a small ice bath, and called it a night.
I am planning on a long run of 5 miles tomorrow with my friend Karen bright and early. What an awesome way to start a weekend!
I have to send a huge thank you to SkinnyRunner for the suggestion to use Windows Live Writer. I guess I was a masochist before, because it took me forever to do a post! So thx SR, from one dumb blonde to another .
I am super excited for
this Sunday! I will take lotsa pics and do a big post about it, don’t worry!
Are you racing this weekend? If not, what are your plans?
