Virtual 5K's

This weekend I had two virtual 5K's, one for Coach Jenny's Holiday Challenge and one for Runs for Cookies. It was also the first meeting of our running group, Just Add Running, which was really cool.

When I woke up in the morning, it was 37 degrees and it was POURING. I put on my gear and headed out. We met at Shelley Lake and, thankfully, the rain stopped just as we started. Rachel and I ran together and finished in 47:32, so that is our time to beat next month when we met again. I felt great during the run, I think I could've gone faster, but I was playing it safe especially since I hadn't ran a step since the weekend before.. I was comfortable and tried hard to concentrate on my breathing. It was really fun meeting up with these girls and getting active.

I plan on working on a strength training and core plan (I know, broken record, right?) this week and getting back to a running schedule. If I'm going to get serious about trying another marathon, or even another half, I need to lose some weight. I did some food prep this morning, so I'll be set for a pretty healthy week.
