Almost Race Day & Bestie in Town!

I just got back from my packet pickup for my 5k this weekend.  I gotta say, pretty nice little swag bag – even a bear of local honey!!!  That will save me a trip to the farmers’ market.  At least until I run out of farmers, that is. 😉

It’s been since Jan since I’ve raced, so I’m excited.  Some people are curious how I can be excited about “only” a 5k, since I just did the Dopey Challenge (48.6 miles in 4 straight days).  Ya know what, I learned long ago to respect each distance.  None is better than another.  They are all different and all good.

And I never want to be a running snob.  I’ve seen people in tears at the finish of a marathon and at the finish of a 5k, alike.  I have friends that run 100 mile races too.  It’s all running.  It’s all good.

Anyway, I got in a good run today and a good weight session.  Friday, it has been predicted, that I shall none run, but rest up and foam roll instead.  Speaking of which, I know kids learn by watching, and I guess I’m teaching the little girl a few things.

She's seen me put myself through so much pain on this thing, she decided to give it a go.

And more exciting news, one of my besties is in town.  It has been exactly one year since I saw her last.  She lives in Raleigh, NC.  I was there with my sis last April to run the Flying Pirate Half Marathon in OBX.  Still my favorite race experience to date.  You can see my recap HERE.

Unfortunately she’s here to see her mom who underwent emergency surgery today.  I won’t get into details, but hopefully she will be all good.  I wish it was another circumstance, but it will be nice to see my friend.

How bout you?  Anyone racing this weekend?  Any good race swag lately?  Is it wrong to teach kids to foam roll (it hurts so good)?
