Tomorrow is the big day.
Eight months of training, which is
MY FIRST 5K!!!
Can I call myself a runner after this?
So excited to run my first race, and support a great cause while I'm doing it. I'll be running in memory of my late cousin Marianne Volpe. Support the cause if you can by clicking here.
Of course the temperature has dropped 10-15 degrees in the last 4 days, and I have never run outdoors in temps less than 50, so I'm not really sure how I'm going to make it through... but I'm hoping once I start really moving I'll be okay.
This cooler weather means a last minute trip to Kohl's tonight for some warmer running gear. Thank goodness for my 30% off coupon! Last minute shopping to be followed by relaxation with my man, who will be home tonight thanks to a day tour. We hardly ever get to spend a Friday night together, so I'm really psyched about that!
Tomorrow also marks R's last baseball game of the fall season. I know he's sad to stop playing for now, but I'm glad we're finishing up before the cold really sets in. I'm hoping to take R & M (the boys are with their mom this weekend) to a small local fall festival after the game, and then snuggle up inside for the rest of the day.
We are rounding out Dee's First 5K weekend with a Sunday Funday in the city with our best friends. We are hitting up 5 Napkin Burger and hopefully some super yummy cupcakes at either Baked by Melissa or Billy's Bakery for dessert!!! Hey, I earned them after all this running!!! I can't tell you all how much I am looking forward to a whole day with my love, with nothing but grown-up interaction & fattening food!!!! Some days you just need a break, you know what I mean???
Pics of last weeks pumpkin picking extravaganza and this weekends 5K festivities to follow next week....
Hope you all have a wonderful fall weekend!!!!
