Despite the fact that I am enormously suffering from seasonal allergies, I am really enjoying this weather. Normally April in Ohio blows. . .usually literally. It is so nice to run in capris and a tshirt and soak up some vitamin D.
This is what we saw while running on the Towpath:
|Hello, leetle friend!|
|Bale of turtles|
The last two miles of this run were particularly difficult, and I realized why when I checked the Garmin and saw that Joy had pushed us to doing our fastest miles in the last two. She is a tricky one. This officially starts our taper. Joy and I are both running the Canton Gold Jacket 5k on Saturday, and we are each running a 10k leg on our relay team for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Marathon, Half Marathon, and Relay on Sunday. This will be my first time running a relay, and I'm excited. By the way, Peeps, keep your eyes peeled for a Gold Jacket 5k giveaway on this blog. It's coming up soon. For information about the Gold Jacket 5k and/or the Pro Football Hall of Fame Races, check my other blog, From the Sideline.
I haven't run a 5k since September 2014, so I will be interested to see how I do in this one. No matter what, Joy and I are going to have lots of fun, especially with our team, Beast Mode 5. Does our name intimidate you? NO????
This will be a great way to test my legs for the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon.
Until next Sunday, run happy, Peeps!
