And its snowing again...
First and foremost I am soooooo excited for the color run- yes so excited I signed up the day it OPENED!!! I really wanted to do this last year and just wasn't on the ball about it. I never recieved any information on when the race I wanted opened up (last year we were gunning for DC) and by the time I looked back it was closed. This year I was NOT missing out so I created a team and signed right on up. Is it too early to be THIS excited? Yes, it really is. Why?
Unfortunately, I had to RUSH off after my run instead of chit chat a little more because Saturday was ALSO the bridal shower for a good friend who is getting married next month. Regardless, the run was amazing- great scenery, fresh air and great company. So glad I chose to take part of this endevour.
After the shower, I went back to my parent's for a while and ended up going to Michaels in search for something on the crafty side of life- which was a FAIL. We then hopped over to target and my little heart jumped for joy. No friends, I am not kidding you. I wanted to look for clearance winter running items (per advice of a TNT mate) and found that little black hat on clearance for 4.48 from 14.00- YES PLEASE!!! Then we marched on to the bulk area where there was a little section of mark downs as well- 2 yoga blocks for 8.98 from 17.99. Funny since one block is usually 9.99. Mom also got a 3 pack of yoga socks for about 10 bucks, half off too I think. You could say our days were made.
Yesterday was pretty rough. We lost power in the middle of the night 2:30am to be exact and I was awoken by the dead silence. Weird right? Anyway we had no power for about 3 hours, which meant dead silence in the house but not in my brain where thoughts began to SPIN!!! I was worried about what would happen if the outage lasted too long and whether I would get my run in in the morning. Needless to say, I was stinkin tired but I got up and went anyway. When I got home I tried something new with my planks- single arm side planks and I finally looked up to see what these russian twists were everyone talked about.. and DID THEM!! That burned so good.
I didn't make it up for a run this morning. I just couldn't do it. I didn't sleep well again last night and figured I would at least rest a little and then switch up today and tomorrow's workouts. Tonight will be some crosstraining and tomorrow morning I shall run. It'll be more fun that way anyway- especially if this silly snow sticks around :) Don't read to far into that. This doesn't mean I am super excited about the snow.... I would die for a nice warm spring sunny day day run.
