Monday Mentionings: June 6

Good morning friends! I have a short little Monday update for you today!

Last Monday I was in Hays! I had a great long weekend home for Memorial Day.  Mom and I had a humid 4 miler on Monday, we ran along the bypass and enjoyed the scenery.

Saturday morning, bright and early, I ran the Hospital Hill Half Marathon.  I hope to have a recap up for you tomorrow.  I will say that it was vey hard, and very humid, and very hilly, and very hard.

I’ve now done 10 half marathons.  This one may have been the very toughest.

Sunday morning, Amy and I ran a few shakeout miles.  Little did we know, that we dressed very similar.  Of course we did.  Same visor, black tank, running skirt.  Check, check, check.

I have a very exciting weekend coming up, I’ll be visiting Kristen and Thayne in Milwaukee! I hope to also share my experience from Hospital Hill, tomorrow! Have a great week!

Global Running Day!

Yesterday was Global Running Day.  Last year, it was National Running Day, so I guess running is taking over the world!  KC Running Co. had a huge party, just like last year.  We ran 3-4 miles, had pizza afterwards, and there were lots of giveaways.

Amy, Jenn, Melissa, and I ran 4 miles, and boy was it humid! Still getting use to the heat and humidity around here.  Sandey turned around at a mile and a half, she’s working on healing up here achilles.

It’s always great to see lots of people out running, and it was fun to celebrate our running day with several hundred runner friends! KC Running Co. had 2 huge parties, one at each of their stores.

Wish Momma could have run with us for Global Running Day, but we did have 3 good runs over the weekend, including a 4 miler on Memorial Day.

To celebrate, I am running tonight with the KCRC Groupies. We should have a HUGE group of 300 or so runners celebrating our holiday!  There will be a group run, giveaways, food, and fun! I’m really excited to run tonight!

Also to celebrate, I’m signing up for the KC Marathon Half Marathon, which is this fall.  I ran this race last year, and it was a beautiful course, and a very well run race.  I can’t wait to do it again!

What are you doing to celebrate National Running Day? Have a FANTASTIC day, runners!!
