Back again...How I do love three day weekends! They still go by way too fast but at least when you come back on Tuesday, you can at least appreciate that it will be a short week.
Chili Bowl Update...well Friday when I thought about what I hoped for the Chili Bowl, in my head I thought I would really like to break 23.00 minutes and surpisingly I am happy to report, mission accomplished! I finished the very cold Chili Bowl with an official time of 22:56. For all those who may not know, my next closest time I think was 23:34...so in my mind we are starting off 2006 on the right foot! So, 3 races down for 2006, many more to go(Frostbite Prediction Run 5K, Dirty Dog 10K, and now the Chili Bowl 5K)!
Sunday morning woke up early and thought I might as well go run with the Southeast Running Club. It was awesome to meet some wonderful people with that group and I am looking forward to many more of their group runs. Thank goodness for the ladies who ran with me that morning...the conversation and new scenery helped take my mind off the 8 miles that I ran in that seriously cold weather!
Beyond the workouts...the rest of the weekend was also great...had girl time with Dawn and got even blonder hair; ate too much out(as usual); spent time with the family and friends, and did very little in the way of work!
Started off today with a 6AM interval class at the gym...and I am already happy that today is already up to 29 degrees so my lunch time run should feel warm after this weekend!
