Friday Free-For-All – 09/25/15

FFFA (1)

I got a chair massage at work on Wednesday and it was magical. We have someone come in to do 30 minute chair massages once a month, and up until now I’ve always been sort of, “Meh, whatever,” about it. But I was still so sore after the Spartan race that I decided to suck it up and pay the $15. BEST.DECISION.EVER. The lady was really nice and paid special attention to all my sore spots. It was a delightful little oasis in the drudgery of my Wednesday and I think I might have to do one every month now.

I know you’re all waiting for the Spartan recap… I know, and I promise, it’s already written, I’m just waiting for the photos to be posted. Spartan offers free (!!!) downloads of all race photos, so I want to get them and put them in the recap. It’ll be up as soon as possible, I promise!

Color Run tomorrow! I didn’t write a “goals” post, because honestly, the goal is just to have fun and get my friend Emily through her first 5k. Unfortunately due to her crazy schedule and mine, we didn’t get to do as much training as I would have liked, and she’s understandably very nervous about her first race. I promised that I’d get her to the finish line no matter what, and that’s what I plan to do!

Fall has officially arrived here in VT. The leaves are beginning to change, the weather is cool and crisp, and it’s getting darker earlier. While fall is my favorite season, I can’t help but feel sad because I missed out on so much of this summer being in rehearsals all the time. I’m sure once I bust out my basic white girl attire of leggings and boots and sip my first PSL I’ll feel better, but right now the change of seasons is very bittersweet. At least it’s good running weather! I have a 9 miler scheduled for Sunday and the weather looks perfect–sunny and low 70’s!

Are you racing this weekend?

    No race for me this weekend! But I might be running a little one next week to fulfill my corporate health challenge requirements. And don’t you think that the spartan run qualifies as a color run of sorts?

    I’m with you on the change of seasons being bittersweet right now. I’m enjoying hoodie weather but part of me still wants it to be light out later and warm enough that I can drink iced coffees and not feel freezing doing so 🙂 Ah well. Hope you had fun at the Color Run!
