I’m like a million years late writing this recap and it’s not because I didn’t have fun. I had a blast. How could you not with this craziness going on?!
Sometimes I have a habit of underestimating things. It’s a fault of mine. My husband can vouch for this. I was a little worried after the Tour de Pain was over on Saturday that I wasn’t going to be able to do the Drenched 5k. It was the next morning and I was worn out after the mile sizzler. I’m stubborn though, so I knew I’d do my best and since Braden was tagging along and I wasn’t planning to race (it’s not a timed event), I figured it would be fine.
This was probably the most fun I’ve ever had at a race. I’ve been really looking forward to the Florida Striders Memorial Day 5K for a few reasons — some friends (Jenn from Runs with Pugs and Devon from The Food Bitch Blog) were running with us, our kids were running the 1-mile fun run, and it was the first race I was running
against with my brother.
Oh my goodness, we had so much fun! I’m not a super girly-girl, but the idea of crawling through mud didn’t exactly thrill me. I’ve heard how much fun these events are though and I really wanted to try one. I figured we couldn’t go wrong with LoziLu – it’s a women’s mud run so it couldn’t be too bad, right?
I haven’t posted much lately.. maybe you’ve noticed, maybe you haven’t. When the bombings at the Boston Marathon happened, I kind of pulled back from social media and unplugged a bit. I felt like I was attacked in a community where I’ve always felt safe and welcome. I was having a really hard time processing my feelings and figuring out how I felt. I spent a lot of time watching the news, glued to the television for some reason why this happened. I have a hard time with not understanding why.
