I can't think of a better way to spend my birthday weekend than running a race. Technically, my birthday was yesterday, but the festivities continue this weekend with dinner with the girls tomorrow night and then we are running the Bond Brook Tread Fest 5-Miler on Sunday as Team Rail Trail Chicks.
Let's back up just a little bit. I first want to show you what I got for my birthday.
And yes, I fired that baby up at 10:50 PM. And technically (geez, this post is full of technicalities), I won the Keurig in a drawing, but I'm counting it as the best birthday present because I didn't have to spend any of my own money to buy it...it was free!
So back to this coming weekend. The Tread Fest is taking place at the Bond Brook Recreational Area on the trails through the woods of Augusta, ME.
I haven't run on trails since high school cross-country when I looked like this -
|Yikes - and no boobs either.|
I might have had more speed back then, but I am certain I could beat my younger self endurance-wise. Needless to say, I am stoked about hitting the trails on Sunday with my girls for my first race post-marathon. See you at the finish line!
