“There’s a future that’s bright in the dead of this night and all she’s gotta do is go.”- Eli Young Band
Happy Monday my loves! This weekend was the perfect mix of fun, sweat, and relaxation. On Friday night, after a few too many rolls of sushi, I went out in Washington Square with my two favorites. We had a much-needed night of dancing and wining. On Saturday morning, I woke up and ran some errands with my mom in the morning. Since it was rainy and chilly, the rest of the day was spent watching college football and eating chicken wings. My dad’s wings are one of my guiltiest pleasures, and they really only happen during football season. On Sunday, I was up early to run the 9/11 Heroes Run. This was my third year running it, and I couldn’t have been more excited. Each year, The Travis Manion Foundation heads to the Please Touch Museum, and we run a 3.1 mile loop to honor all those who have risked their lives, and those who have lost theirs, for our freedom and safety. I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that I have family and tons of friends in the military, so races that benefit and honor the armed forces are always close to my heart. This year was extra special because I was able to PR and finish 10th in my division. The only down side…I lost my Garmin, post-run. It was probably all the excitement of running strong, seeing my love Chelsey (visit her blog here!), and having my puppy cheering me on at the finish line. You know what they say, you win some and you lose some. I guess I’ll just have to get the latest and greatest in Garmin running watches. I’m thinking maybe the Forerunner 10? Thoughts?
