COLOR RUN 5K
I was able to do the Color Run 5k a week or so ago. It was just what the DOCTOR ordered for me. My stress level was rising and I needed to just go run and have some fun. It was pretty chilly the day of the race. The race didn't start till 1,but we wanted to get there early so we could get a good place to park and line up. We lucky enough to get into the first wave. As we were running up the long hill to the finish line we went by all the runners that were still waiting for their wave to start. Their was a Hell of a lot of people at this race.
|Tree, Me and Liz . Waiting for race|
|Liz,Tree and Me. Were all lined up and having a little fun wasting time.|
|We made it . It was a great time. Just what the Doctor ordered for me. Some running and having fun with some great girls.|
The trees that line our driveway are finally turning, they're pear trees. They seem to always be the last tree to turn into it beautiful fall colors. I like to sit in my hubbies office an look out the window at the beautiful colors of all the trees this time of year.
I was finally able to get back to Nxtbend Fitness and workout with my Nxtbend buddies. OH, how I've missed them. I feel like since harvest my body has went to pot. It's funny how it seem to take a long time to get your body into shape,but not a long time for it to turn to jello. I've got some Major work to do.
This Sunday I'm running the IMT Des Moines Half Marathon. Am I well trained or ready for it, NOT. I'll do my best and have a heck of a lot of fun doing it. Normally I'm able to train without to much of a problem, but this year with harvest earlier it made it a lot harder to keep up with my running schedule. I knew it would be hard with both boys away at college, but I didn't think it would take away time from my running time. You never know what to expect from year to year when it comes to farming. I've had to learn to go with the flow. However, I'm very lucky to have amazing running partners, that totally get when harvest comes around I might not make a run here and there. So glad I didn't sign up for the Full this year.
How has your fall been?
