Running Rainbow

Running after a hiatus is so much fun.  Today I felt like I could just keep going and going and going...but I didn't!  I had to stop myself at 3 miles because I knew I'd be really sore and mad at myself tomorrow if I kept going!  Also, I needed to shower before my ride left me!

But my quick 3 miles felt amazing.  My body didn't forget what to do even though it's my 4th run in 4 weeks!  My back didn't hurt...much.  I feel motivated, which is good cause Denver will be here sooner than I know it!

The Color Run is here!  This Saturday the GF and I will be participating in The Color Run.  It's a 5K race and at every kilometer they throw a different color of powder paint on all the runners, so when you finish you're a running rainbow!  How exciting is that?  Well, I'm really excited, so I'll be sure to let you know how it goes!

I may have a few races on the horizon before Denver (I'm still looking into them), but my biggest decision right now is if I want to run the Hot Chocolate 15K the weekend after the Denver Halfer.  I've heard really good things about the Hot Chocolate races (mostly good things) and if I did it, I'd want to do more than just the 5K, but I can't quite decide, we'll see about that too...and again, I'll keep you posted!

Hood to Coast is upon us and here I sit without a team to race with...that'll change one day.  Good luck to everyone running...I'll be rooting for you!

Friday's coming!
