Volunteered at Rock the Parkway 5k and Half Marathon on Saturday. Nice to be able to give back a little to the running community. Many people said thank you for volunteering. I always try to say thank you to the volunteers when I race because I know how much races need volunteers to keep runners safe. Got me excited for the Running wIth the Cows Half Marathon coming up in May. Saw my friends Anna and Ryann in the half (Missed Valerie in the 5k Dangit!) which motivated me to get out and run this weekend! :)

Too bad my back's bothering me. Ran 3 on Saturday and 6 on Sunday. Really need to get more miles in. I am definitely not ready for that race!!!

Run for Mercy 5k

Did the Run for Mercy 5k this morning. First race since last November. Nice cool temps in 50's and the rain held off. Time was 30:21 which equals 9:47 pace. Haven't run much over last 6 weeks so it was nice to see under 10:00 pace. Hoping to get back to a routine soon.

Have a couple half marathons coming up then start training for Marine Corps Marathon. Will be doing the intermediate plan so must start getting the miles in or I won't be physically ready for that training plan.
