I got dressed in my warmest running clothes and grabbed my bibs for my 2 Virtual Races, that kinda go hand in hand which I *love*.
As part of my Run to the Finish Resolution Race, co-hosted by Mommy, Run Fast, who is also hosting the 5 by the 5th Virtual series, I ran 5 miles today. I chose 5 miles, but you could also choose a 5K, so long as you finish it every month, by the 5th of the month, from January to June.
What a great way to get me moving every month! I also got to put my
Resolutions Goals for 2013 in writing, and into the Facebook Ether! Hooray! I can't wait to run my 13 Halfs in 2013, along with my 5 by the 5th Five Milers!
It turned out to be a great run as well! We ran in the neighborhood, to keep it safe, and the Hubs did very well in keeping up, even though he said more than once that he wanted to quit. Once he hit the 2 mile mark he went home, to get the car so that he could buy the teenies and their friends some donuts. I ket at the last 3 miles, trying to make up a little of the time I lost when he was running with me. He can kick my butt in a one miler, but once we pass that, I am the Queen, lol. It was a nice run in the end, perfect for a taper run. Disney is in less than 2 weeks, holy heck!
After my run, we took the pups to Bay Head beach again. It still saddens me to see all of the damage from Sandy, but life must go on, and I can't keep pretending it didn't happen! The dogs love the beach, and Nugget LOVES the Ocean, although she didn't swim in it this time. We walked just over 1.5 miles, just the right amount to wear the pups out for a few hours!
What did you do today to set the stage for a great 2013?
