Hey you guys!!! I hope you’re ecstatic about the fact that it’s FRIIIIIDAY!!! I mean, aren’t ya?! We made it!! That in itself deserves a WOOHOO!!!! Go ahead…I’m waiting…bellow out IT’S FRIIIIDAY!!! WOOHOO!!! with that Friday pride that we’ve all come to love and embrace!!
What is it about Friday that makes it so appealing to us???!!!! Hmmm…one word…FREEDOM!!! Yep, I think that about sums it up!!!
Do me a favor (okay?) and let the iciness of the week pour out of your skin like the many fabulous, sweaty runs you’ve done. Let all the toxins and heartache of the week drain from your body leaving it ready to absorb nothing but awesome weekend fun!!! Ready, GO!!!
Feel better??!! (I DO!!!)
Thanks everyone for your lovely birthday wishes!!! You guys are the best bloggers ever!! I mean it!!! I’m really looking forward to this weekend and ready to get this party started (by running my 10k race tomorrow)!!!
Can you guess what’s different (about my race tomorrow)??!! Well (pencils down), here’s the answer:
I don’t feel nervous…and for me, that’s like SAY WHAT status.
Just in case you were wondering, SAY WHAT status = This has never happened before because to be honest, I’m always nervous before a race or meet.
I don’t know, maybe this new (calm, cool, and collected) status was brought on by the fact that:
1} It’s my birthday weekend!!! Tehe!!
2} It’s only my second 10k ever; therefore, a guaranteed PR (thinking that I’ll beat my 8:18 pace that I ran back in 2009, after deciding to run a race with absolutely no running experience whatsoever (I think I started running 2 weeks prior to the 10k))!!
3} I’m a more experienced runner (now having run a half-marathon and a few 5ks)!!
Well, to be honest, I don’t have a particular goal time in mind, either. I guess (in certain respects), that could make the race a little easier to swallow, too, but truthfully, my #1 goal for tomorrow (and for the entire weekend) is to have fun!! This race brings out lots and lots of FAST people, so we’ll see what happens!!!
The awkward part is, I haven’t been training for a 10k (more like 5ks and half marathons), so racing this distance will be a whole new experience for me!! It’s kinda that in between mileage that leaves me questioning how to run it, but I’ll figure it out on the course!!! Wish me luck!! XOXO!!!
Alright, moving past the 10k, here we go!!!
Along with my birthday weekend festivities, I’ll also be prepping for my summer league swim team this weekend!! Tuesday starts crazy summer swimming Kristin (which means, if Crazy Summer Swimming Kristin were a Barbie doll, she’d still be on the shelf because she’d probably scare away all the little kids with her half done hair and her sweaty, shiny, chlorine smelling skin!! Attractive, right?!)…
Watching these beautiful sweeties swim + listening to Bruno Mars (beforehand), made me happy!!!
FIRST I WAS LIKE…
