Here we go!
I love easter-the celebration of Spring and also what it really means: the resurrection of Jesus! It is always such a special time!
My boyfriend's sister and niece are here from London! I can't wait to hang out with them over the next two weeks :)
This weekend is my 2nd of 4 race weekends in a row and my first new race of 3. i love the excitement of new races and I am veyr muhc looking forward to Santa Anita Derby Day 5k.
4. Future races
Remember when I said I was trying to not sign up for anymore races for 2016? Well that didn't happen! I signed up for 2 more races I. 2016! I'm thinking flash sales are the new thing in racing. It is a win-win! People that want to run the race again get to sign up for cheap and the races get people to sign up early.
I have been wanting to do the Carlsbad 5000 for awhile as it is probably one of the most famous 5ks in the country. (No joke, before I was even a runner and went to San Diego for the first time, I said as we passed Carlsbad-oh where that 5k is? Haha). I just learned about the all day 20k last week and decided it was the perfect challenge for me! I could use the first 3 5ks as a warmup and then really work hard during my age range. And there's a tent with food?!? Yes, I am all in and I signed up!
It is 65 dollars to register through Easter and only 20 dollars for the 5k for your age group!
Next up, I love the Great Race LA and have wanted to do the Pacific Half marathon as it was rated the best half marathon in the country and the pictures of it look gorgeous! My main issue is it has always been just two weeks after the LA Marathon so I have opted for the 10k. Next year it is 5 weeks after the LAM so I signed up for 65 dollars during an Aprils Fools Day flash sale. This year they are bringing back the double race where you can do the 10k and 5k and you know how I love to do multiple races! I have also wanted to do the 5k as it is named after Deena Kastor! I will save that for the future :)
5. Easter ham
yup, food! I am going to make the easter ham recipe i made last year and fell in love with. So excited to have good eats on Sunday after a 10 mile run.
What has been good lately? What are you looking forward to this weekend?
