While I’ve been on the road to recovery with my SI joint, some days I have felt super….
And others, things are a little evil.
This week, things have been a little more evil than amazing, so I have kept the mileage low and slow and I scratched my weekend race plans. This could be because of my back, or the fact that the 3 boys have been practicing their spooky tricks out on me – hiding in closets, turning the entire contents of the bathroom upside down, and perhaps the scariest of all – having the day after Halloween off from school! (Seriously, actually so excited about this!)
Initially I was going to do the Renegade Race Series Dino Dash 10k on Sunday, but since I knew I w
as going to binge on candy all weekend things were still a little off, a 10k race didn’t seem like a bright idea. 10k’s are always just brutal on my body and I know I won’t be able to just jog the thing. So I opted to control the controllables on this one – myself.
Instead, the boys and I are taking it to the streets to do the 5k. We’ve talked to some other families in the area to see if they will join us – so who knows what will happen. All I know is it will be an upROARious morning as it’s a 5k targeted towards elementary age school kids. Plus this year they have finisher’s medals which is all I’ve heard about since the boys found out.
I think it’s brilliant timing – let the kids get all hopped up on candy & Halloween parties all weekend and then let them crash and burn with a 5k by Sunday before sending them back to school Monday morning.
Anyone else racing this weekend?
What was your favorite Halloween costume?
