Last week I got 20 miles in…slowly making my way back to normal and by slow, I mean REALLY slow miles.
Instead of focusing on the long, slow recovery I’m going to focus on the exciting things around the corner.
This Saturday I have one of my most favorite races EVER: the Griffith Park Trail Half Marathon.
I wrote about it a lot…(I seriously loved it so much) here, here, and here. The trail, the views, the people, the super organized race…it’s all super amazing and I’m super excited Kiera (the race director) is giving me a chance to run it again.
I do know that this year’s race will not be the same as last year’s – I’m not in the same shape as I was and am still recovering from an injury. This is not the race to lay it all out on the course. This is a fabulously fun race with amazing people and I am excited to just finish (someone do me a favor and remind me of this on Saturday morning, okay?).
If you’re itching to get some miles in this weekend on the trail, registration is still open at the moment. Sign up here.
On December 14, the boys and I are heading to Irvine to run the Rengade Race Series Troutman Sanders Santa Run. Not only are there prizes for running fast, but there are also finisher’s medals (kid’s are thrilled) and costume prizes. It’s a super family friendly race, and….prepare yourself…I’m actually working to put together costumes with the boys. I NEVER run in costumes (or if we’re honest even dress up for Halloween), so this is a big deal in the casa.
I was looking up costumes for Vanilla and we found this gem and I almost died:
If you are interested in joining the crew and I for the Santa Run,be sure to register here and use the code SHEILAREP
What is the best running costume you’ve ever seen?
Any ideas for the costume contest?
I had one idea, but I was told it was lame sauce.
