I ran a small town 5K and it kicked my ass

As a lapsed runner, the last bit of the habit I’ve yet to kick is the part where I search and sign up for races. I’ve given up buying running clothes and you know, going for runs but inputting my credit card info into sketchy race websites  to purchase a 7am Saturday wake up call is a habit I just can’t quit.

I spent a weekend in Great Barrington, MA with my best bud Tricia.  In a ritual scraping of the internet, I found a local race in support of Volunteers in Medicine, a Great Barrington based health charity, was going on during out stay. The race was hosted by a local brewery called Big Elm Beer. I conferred with Trish, she was in and so we signed up. Tricia is my original running buddy. You may remember her from recent adventures such as the Cherry Blossom 10 miler.

We got to GB late Friday night, around 11pm but I didn’t fret since the 5K didn’t begin until 10am the next day.  It feels very on-brand to have a late start to a race hosted by brewery.

All the workouts: 12/5- 12/11 (SF edition!)

Good morning! Hello from the other side of a busy week. (For what it’s worth, I like being busy.)

Last weekend, I took a trip to the west coast to visit my best girl Natalie, who recently became a mom! I flew to San Francisco with friends Simone and Jamie to meet baby Ellie and pay her mom a visit and it turned into a really special weekend! But before we get into that, this week’s recap.
