I've been a slacker over the past few months as far as blogging goes, but I've actually stepped my running game up quite a bit. My dad and I ran Bloomsday last week which is a 12k (7.46miles) We did amazing - especially my dad who just turned 60! We ran the race in 1 hour and 8 mins, which is exactly 10 mins faster than we ran it last year. That's quite a difference and a new PR for me! We had great weather, a great crowd and a great run!! I love bloomsday, I never know which family member is going to yell out my name along the path, but its great getting to see familiar faces and being cheered on throughout the course! We also decided to sit with some family after we were done and cheer folks on including my awesome cousin michelle who ran the race after just getting back to it after an injury. She did awesome too!! Jason and I have a 10k to run here in Mukilteo tomorrow morning then a mud run on June 2nd which I'm super excited about.. I need go keep signing up for runs so I can be motivated to get out there during the week after my work days, when most days I want to sit and do absolutely nothing after work!! Looking forward to a sunny fun filled mothers day weekend! Happy mothers day to all the moms out there! Happy running!
