After breakfast this morning, I did something I haven't done in awhile: I went for a run! I know, I'm as surprised as you are! Haha!
I actually have two races coming up on my calendar””the Run for Redemption 5K and the Army 10-Miler””and I'm also thinking about adding a fall half marathon, so I want to keep my running up over the next few months. Hopefully, having these races on my calendar will motivate me to incorporate some more runs into my weekly workouts. Local friends: do you have any recommendations for a small-ish fall half marathon?
I planned to run 3 miles today, but I ended up going for 4.5 miles. Today's playlist was really awesome, so I just didn't want to stop.
I finished 4.5 miles in 36:44, which was an average pace of 8:09. It feels good to be back!
After my run, I showered up and then had a serious craving for a smoothie, so I whipped up one of my favorites: Banana Bread Smoothie.
