Let the Spring Running Begin!

Last week I was feeling a little bit discouraged. The Princess Half Marathon was over. My next races were in May, and I wasn't feeling it.  So, I started googling races!
What did I find? A 5k fun run downtown Toronto. Good news! Even better? Entry was $10 and it included a medal!!!! Thankfully Amy and my fellow Princess runner, Penny, offered to join me.
Penny and I discussing how we prefer the Florida temps!
Last night we did the first 5k of spring! It was cold - way too cold for spring. We were bundled and giggly. And it was SO.MUCH.FUN!
Was it a great race? No. It was a tough course - an out and back with 3 loops of a park that was snowy and icy. It was definitely not ideal for a 5k PR like I was gunning for. I didn't even manage negative splits. But I wore my sparkle skirt, had stripey socks and had fun!!!

Thinking of doing a spring race??? DO IT! Forget PRs and have fun. I did.

We win! We win!
