First up, my much anticipated age-group award from the Martian Marathon:
Practicing for May 15th...
What's your best martini recipe?
I also got my medal for placing first in my age group at the Spring Thaw 5K:
And last but not least, Candice at I Have Run sent me this "RUNNERD" sticker for all of my runnerd-ing out during our drive to Michigan.
2. We've had our first taste of muggy mornings around here. Let the sweat-fest begin! During my run this morning I had a moment of
insanity courage and actually tied my shirt around my waist, running in my sports bra. Apologies to the handful of people who had to witness my white fleshy tummy in person; luckily it was still dark and there weren't many people out.
Coming soon to the cover of Runners World!
3. Sporting Life 10K is this Sunday. So far, Nolan's Dream Chasers have collectively raised $4,920 for Camp Oochigeas. Thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored me: Patricia, Vladimir, Richelle, Jennifer, Barb, Paula, Kenny, Michael, Jen, Juliana, Kevin, Kelly and Becky!
There's still time to donate and enter my fundraiser giveaway!
I've participated for the past three years and definitely look forward to this event every year. It's draws a massive crowd with all the fun that goes along with it, including entertainment every mile. It's a point-to-point FAST downhill course and definitely the place to PR.
