I'm going home this weekend and I just discovered that there is a 5K this weekend about 30 minutes away. But the reason it is important is it benefits a foundation in memory of a good friend from high school's aunt who passed away last year.
I obviously want to do it to support my friend but I'm worried because I haven't run 3 miles in a while. Granted, I ran 2 miles last week, but I hate doing races when I haven't prepared. And I'm already planning on another 5k next weekend. But why not do both?
I'm thinking I probably will. My aunt is flying in from out of town, and I want to visit with her but the race is at 8 am and I don't think her flight gets in until the afternoon, so I will probably be done in time to get to the airport. We shall see.
I was 180.2 this morning so I'm pretty sure this 5k could get me back into the 170s and that's reason enough for me to do it.
Oh and has anyone ever made crockpot apple cinnamon oatmeal? I did last night and it cooked for about 8 hours but it just wasn't that great. The cinnamon and brown sugar were barely noticeable. And it was so mushy there was no texture. I know oatmeal is supposed to be mushy but it just wasn't what I expected. Let me know if you've ever made it and if you did anything special to it.
