I started the day super early to bring the Teenie to school so she could go on a trip to Keane University for International Thespian Society. I dropped her off at the crack of dawn and then headed right back home. The hubs and I took our Corgi for a quick run before we started our crazy day:
While the hubs ran into the DMV I ate my brekky and surfed Instagram and Twitter. I realized that I was *thisclose* to getting 1000 followers on Twitter! Woot! If you don't already follow me, consider hopping over there and following me!
After the hubs finished up at DMV, we stopped at Target, looked at some cars (I am thinking Mazda2 or Ford Fiesta in a nice feisty lime green color!) then headed over to the Halfway to Brielle Day 5K. Last year, I finished the race in 31:35, which at the time was a new PR. I was hoping to beat that time, but not really concerned about an overall PR. I went to pickup and got my bib, tee, and hoodie (loving all these hoodies, it is my 3rd in the last few months!) It was very cozy and I wore it while I waited for the race to start! My friend Cheryl ran as well, which I love, because she is a tad faster than me, and I push myself to try and keep up!
It was a nice 45* and a little windy, and it is a very hilly race. I was worried about the hills, because it has only been 6 days since my last hilly race, a Half Marathon! I felt amazing though, and the race went well! I kept Cheryl in my sights the whole time, and finished in about 30:57! Woohoo! Race PR, but not overall. SO thrilled!
I didn't hit pause fast enough lol, so the time is a bit off. I am still waiting on official results! The pic is of Cheryl's Mom, Cheryl, and I.
After the race, we had some free sausage and penne (well, they did, I wanted a bagel) and then went to Einstein Brothers for my bagel.
Now for the best part! The hubs took me to LuLuLemon and bought me yoga pants, running pants, and a running shirt. I got a great new Mini Tote that is so pretty!

I am thoroughly exhausted, and I still have a 7 mile training run tomorrow! I am doing a NJ Marathon Hot Chocolate Training Run, though, and will be going for 15K. Hopefully, a nice flat 15K!
