Gotta a hot one this weekend! Freedom Fest 10K - moderately hilly and hot. Guess I won't be setting any records on Saturday, but it's a fundraiser to send care packages to our troops overseas, so I guess it will be worth it in more ways than one!

Thanks for the encouragement! I finished the Disco Dash 0:45:33.... this wasn't my greatest run, but I finished. I was one second faster than my slowest time thus far, but I was still faster. LOL!

I forgot to post before the race, but I did the Baltimore Women's Classic 5k this morning--my first 5k race ever, except for a 'fun run' when I was 17 or 18. I ended up walking about a block and a half around mile 2 because it was so hot, but otherwise kept jogging.
I know for sure I was slower than when I practice, because that's always in the evening when sun is down. I'm thinking I should start going in the mornings occasionally instead, at least on the weekends.
At the end, they were giving out water and roses =)

Running w/ the DEVIL 1/2 marathon Saturday the 23rd.

It is the DEVIL because of BRUTAL steep & rolling hills. Plus 100+ degree weather. ::gulp:: Been freaking for weeks!

I am thinking about running a 5K on saturday. It is at a minor league ball field and you end the race on the field. Ran it last year and it was so cool!!!
