After a bad, bad run last week I had my second attempt at the St. Patrick's Day 5k here in Colorado. I did it last year and it was the first official 5k of my entire life. When I did it last year, I had to walk a decent amount of it. This year was much, much better and even with some bad runs under my belt, I was still within 30 seconds of my Colorado PR. Which is not close to my Michigan/sea-level PR but that doesn't matter.
Because you know, running at 6,200 feet is way different than running at sea level. You come here and run with me and you'll see!
But because it was St. Pats I decided I must utilize my green socks. So I did.
And now my legs are sore again so I might shift my training around this week. Which is fine. Because I'm a very busy lady and I have fun things to do.
Like go see the Hunger Games.
And head up to Denver for the Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros show on Wednesday. I am particularly fond of the Ogden (which is also where I saw Adele last year...) so I think it will rock (pun?).
I'm also excited because now it is officially less than three weeks until my birthday (you are never too old to love a birthday, so I'm sorry not sorry about this one) and we're almost into event season at work. Plus a new season of Mad Men starts on Sunday and I also have a fantasy baseball draft, which means the regular season is almost here. These are good times, my friends. Good times.
Here's a little ditty to get you through the rest of the day (especially in the event that you don't know who Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are).
Let me know what great things you're looking forward to this week - it will help the week go by faster!
