Friday Happenings

Saturday morning I’m running the Alaska Run for Women–a 5 mile run to raise money for breast cancer awareness and prevention.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to race it, per my coach, but I will be doing it as a tempo run. I have been told I have to stick to the 6:30 minutes/mile tempo pace otherwise I jeopardize my performance next week at the half-marathon.

I am still excited that I get to start in the elite corral. Most of the races I’ve run don’t have an elite field or corral but with 6000+ women in this event, there’s a special area for those who will be running sub-7 minute miles.

Today’s (Friday) run was an easy 5 miler. I actually took Cullen in the stroller and ran (literally) to the grocery store to pick up a few items. I love killing two birds with one stone.

When I got back, Cullen had fallen asleep in the stroller, so I took Sadie (the pooch) for a walk. By this time I was really hungry.

I worked at the store tonight while Grandma watched Cullen. He has four more teeth about ready to pop through, which will make eight teeth for this little guy! And, no, he hasn’t learned to swallow his own drool yet.
