Running Wild

Run Wifey Run

I’m not sure how “wild” it was but it sure was fun. Saturday, a few of my tennis buddies and I participated in the Publix Run Wild 5K around Atlanta’s historic Grant Park. The event was a part of the official ING Georgia Marathon & Half Marathon Weekend.

It was the perfect way to start off the weekend. The sun was shining and warmed us up quickly; the race route was scenic and challenging, but nothing too hard; and I finished smiling just under 36 minutes.

To top the weekend off Miles hit a homerun in his baseball game later that morning, Husband and I won our tennis match that afternoon, and Sunday I got a coveted number to run in the Peachtree Road Race on the Fourth of July – the largest 10K in the country. I’ve run in the Peachtree several times before, but this one seems special. Maybe it’s because I can almost fix my mouth to say, “I’m a runner.” Almost.

How about you? Was your weekend “wild?” Hopefully you took the time to do something active to take care of you.

Lots of pushing the double stroller to the park these days! Does that count?

You look great!

How do you do it all!?!?! Had a great time Saturday! You kept me running. Looking forward to the next race (although I may not make the Peachtree (frown)).

I wouldn't call my past weekend wild but I certainly did do something for me. I looked for a new vehicle.
