That month we ran a lot

Remember when I was training for 10ks and half marathons and wrote about running.....a LOT.

And then remember when I got a little burnt out on running and wrote about other important things like Miley Cyrus's desperate need for a bra and my lifelong dream of holding a baby lion (seriously, who can make this happen?)  

Well this month has been a month of races and training and it's reminded why I loved(d) running so much. 

A couple weeks ago I ran the Color Run with some of my girlfriends because...who doesn't like being shades of blue and pink for three days?! 

Kelly and I! Chamberlain had these amazing shirts printed for us. Yes, they say "Show me your kitties" (hence the cat ears.) Unfortunately, I'm fairly certain the shirts were from the children's department. They were SO unflattering!!  But we just ran with (get it?!) Ha!

Before....


....After

Team Glitter Kitties 

 We were SO dirty! And this year they added in glitter....Two weeks later and I'm still brushing glitter out of my hair. I'm basically a fairy at this point. 

 It's important to be well-coordinated

 Let's ignore the fact that I am the only one not off the ground in this picture....A for effort right? 

If you're wondering why I'm not joining in the sweatband party, it's because I looked like the bald man on Etch-a-Sketch. Not good friends, not good. My sweat band found it's second life as a garter. We also discovered at the start of the race that my pants were blatantly see through so I rocked the jacket around the waist like it was 1995. Good times. 


So.Much.Fun

Last weekend I ran a 10K with another group of friends. It was my friend Jessica's first 10K -she just got into running and she KILLED it! She did amazing. I was so proud!


Nate, Whitney, Me, Jessica and Chris

Have you Color Run'd before? 


XO, A
