The Weekend is Almost Here!

It is so nice that today is the final day of the work week! Tomorrow I will be running in the Brentwood Firecracker 5K. It's a great "out and back" course that is usually packed with runners and spectators. My Mom's dancing school is in Brentwood, so every year her students (the 3-6 year olds) are in the parade that follows the race. So after I finish my out and back I will head back down to the turnaround of the race, that's where the parade starts. I'll "march" along with them and keep the little one's in line! It should be a fun time though!
I'm excited for the 5K, I haven't run much this week because my foot has been bothering me. I'm hoping that it will feel pretty good for tomorrow though. I haven't done a 5K under 30 minutes in a while and I am REALLY hoping to finish it under 29.
Hope you all have a Happy Fourth of July!

"Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace the test or flunk the class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourslef. Breathe. And enjoy the ride. "
