Welcome to Friday Free-For-All, where I talk about anything and everything on my mind. This is usually just a great big brain dump, so brace yourselves!
I ran a super fast (for me) mile yesterday! I ran mile 4 of my 4 mile progression run at an 8:49 pace. This is HUGE for me. In high school, I barely made a 10-minute mile, and that was only running a single mile. To be able to pull out that pace at the end of a run is kind of amazing. I hope I never stop feeling excited about how far I’ve come with my running–I was walking on sunshine (woah, oh!) all night last night.
I’ve got some tough family stuff going on right now. I can’t go into any details, but suffice to say, it’s very yucky and stressful. Thank the universe that I’ve got running endorphins, otherwise I would be a very unhappy girl right now.
I’m doing the Color Run tomorrow. I started a team called Back to the Fuchsia, and originally I had a group of friends who were going to join me. Two of them bailed, so now it will just be me and my friend Stef. She’s just getting into running, so it will be a leisurely 5k for me. It’s not timed anyway, so I don’t have any goals other than to stick with my friend the whole time, take lots of pictures, and have fun 🙂
We’re house-sitting again this weekend. Same place as usual, only this time we get an extra doggy–a lab named Tessie. We’ve met her before, but never watched her. It’s all different branches of the same family, which means that Annie and Tessie know each other, so we don’t have to worry about doggy fights or anything. And as far as I’m concerned, the more dogs, the merrier!
Have you ever done a Color Run?
Anybody else racing this weekend?
