Fitness Friday #2
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have a fun weekend ahead of you with lots of sunshine and time outdoors!
My next race is the Sly Fox Half Marathon, which is taking place TOMORROW morning beginning at 7:00 am in St. Charles, Illinois. As a result, I enjoyed running an easy 2.5 miles and walking with Rob after work for my Friday Fitness. Hopefully our legs feel fresh tomorrow!
This year is the 3rd running of the Sly Fox event, featuring distances of a 10K and half marathon. Rob is running the 10K, and I am running the half. Stay tuned for results and photos after the race! Regardless of pace, I look forward to finishing my first half for 2017 and spending quality time with my husband and friends! The scenic course is fairly hilly but it is a nice challenge and has a phenomenal post-race party (complete with burgers!). Here are a few of my favorite memories and pics from the past 2 years:
2015: I learned of this race in its inaugural year all thanks to my dear friend Noell. She is not only an amazing runner, but also one the the sweetest people I have ever known! We both had a great race that year, which was probably from our ridiculously high mileage during training runs together after work! Despite the far distance between us in terms of geographic location, we are still (and always will be) close!
2016: This was a memorable race for several reasons!
1. Time with friends is always time well spent (Lori, Jim, and Sean)
2. It was my first official race as Mrs. Humphreys
3. The course was misguided so a neighborhood loop was missed, resulting in a "12 mile" half for all participant...OOPS!
Goodnight everyone! It's getting late, so I need some ZZZ's because morning will be here soon!
