Guess what I did this weekend friends?
I ran a half!
It was hot here. And humid. I’m a desert animal, and humidity makes me hate the world.
(We ate outside despite being sweaty messes. You gotta enjoy the sun when it’s here.)
Because 5ks are awesome 10 mile chasers right?
I was a run buddy for Girls on the Run. Our practice 5k was in late April, and it was WET. So it’s only fitting that the real one was the hottest day Portland has had so far this year.
(I’m honestly in this pic. I swear. Look towards the middle-see the super long brown hair? Me.)
We did the Starlight run, which goes before the Starlight Parade and follows the parade route. This means you get lots of people cheering for you, which is rad. My girl’s family showed up I think 4 or 5 times along our route screaming for her. Also rad.
We had good intentions of going to watch some of the parade, but running the route it was super crowded. And running 13 miles meant I needed a beer
I left the race bib on because I figured it made it look like there was at least a vague reason I was in a bar looking a sweaty mess in my running shorts.
Real half is less than a month away!
