5 Miler

I’ve had a very busy week, but still managed to fit in some workouts and ran some miles.  Here are some pictures from last weekend’s 5 mile race.


Amy came to see me run :)  Her foot is healing and she has been able to run!  We need to workout together again because it helps us stay on track!




Start of the race and there were about 400 people at this local race.  I love this race but forgot that the course was kinda hilly in some spots.  I was happy even though I was battling a sinus infection that week.

IMG_1440Tired but very happy after the race.  I had just finished and my Dad took a picture right away.  I’m planning on trying to build up my weekend runs each week and do 6 tomorrow.  There is a 1/2 marathon in December I’m planning on signing up for and I need to run more often!


Good Race!!


I ran the White Rose 5 Miler on Saturday!  I LOVE this 5 mile race and did it in 2010 and 2011.  I was a little nervous since I haven’t been running as much as I should, and I’ve had a sinus infection.  It went very well and I actually think it was almost the same exact time as my 2010 race!  I’ll have to compare once the official times are up.

Perfect weather (I didn’t wear the sweatshirt in my before race pic) and I wore my prescription sunglasses :)  I’ll post more about the race once I get my race pics from my Dad!  I had a great time and I really want to do another race soon.  I taught BODYPUMP yesterday afternoon with some soreee legs but I was fine.  I’ve been stretching my hamstrings a lot.  I’ve been wearing my compression socks!

I also made an awesome dinner last night and wanted to share.  It was SO easy but tasted so good.  I’ve never cooked scallops before because they intimidate me.  This risotto was very good and it came with a seasoning packet to add to the rice.  I found it in the organic aisle.  For the scallops, I added vegan butter to a very hot hot pan.  I dried the scallops with a paper towel, added salt and pepper and put them in the pan.  3 minutes on one side and 2 minutes on the other.  Perfect!
