Well this weekend was another great one that included another great run. We ran 13 miles along the beach path according to my Nike+, which could be wrong give or take. It was a great run and super foggy, which made the last three miles seem like forever, because we couldn’t see the Jack-in-the-Box we parked at until we were practically there!
It seems crazy that my 1/2 Marathon is a little over two weeks away. Time does fly, doesn’t it. I remember signing up and beginning training and thinking, man, this is never going to come! Now that it’s actually almost here, I’m like oh man, what did I get myself into?
Anyways, this weekend was a great 5k Walk for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Orange County and it took place at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. I was the Team Captain of Team Flamingo and as you can see in the pictures below, Team Flamingo doesn’t mess around!
We just leisurely walked the 5k, and it was excellent weather, overcast and never even got too hot at all. Walking around Fashion Island is always great too, and the expo was fun to wander through, especially munching on the Pat and Oscar bread sticks. Overall it was a great success and a lot of fun and I am really glad everyone came out and joined Team Flamingo. We’ll be out there next year again I’m sure. :)
This week I am really going to focus on getting all my runs in, as I have something to do every night of this week, which include an Angels playoff game (GO ANGELS! LIGHT UP THE HALO!) and a Ducks game, which I’m super excited about as well. Next Monday is my birthday and I’m going out to Palm Springs for the night this weekend, so that long run should be a really nice change of scenery. Then next weekend is my race! If anyone has advice or tips let me know.
Look forward to some great goodies on Thursday as well. :)
