Weekend run

This weekend's long run was moved back to Saturday because we wanted to go to the early service at church to see two sweet girls be baptized. Their parents are in our small group, and they are friends with our daughter. I'm glad we were able to go.

The run kicked off a busy weekend, but that's the best way, right?

Carrie and I met up for a planned 8. I told her when we started that I wasn't sure I could go that far. However, the run went by pretty quickly. It's amazing how that happens when you're running with someone. We had to walk once...blame that one on a cranky tummy...but it was a good run. I actually felt like my body...well, at least my legs...could have run a couple more. Love that feeling.

I'm counting this run as my Moms Run This Town February Fitness Challenge. I forgot to print my bib, so the picture of my sister and me will have to do.

I've got a couple more virtual runs planned for March, but my hubby and I are looking for another real race. We thought we had one picked, a local 5k, but then we realized that it was at the same time as our church's Easter egg drop. Back to looking again...
