I love love LOVE the fun runs that Fleet Feet Annapolis puts on – The Turkey Trot 5 miler that I completed last Thanksgiving with Sarah Jane, Chocolate Bunny Easter Fun Run, the Quatro de Mayo Fun Run and yesterday, the first Pub Run.
We got there late and they had left (oops), but the store gave us the route and said we could shorten it or go on the full route. We shortened it a bit, but still managed to get in a slow 3 miles roughly in about 35 minutes. It felt good to see sub 10 minutes on my garmin last night, good to know my speed work of yore hasn’t totally packed up shop and hit the road.
After a nice stretch session (and catching up with Lauren!), we headed over to Davis’ Pub in Eastport – one of my favorite joints in Annapolis for the homey, divey atmosphere.
On Monday 8/20, Davis’ is going to be on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives! Adam loves the crab pretzel! We went for the crab balls for our appetizer though, I’m indifferent to pretzels.
It was good to get out and get moving since I’ve been feeling so sloth-like recently. But training for the Army 10 miler starts soon (like next week?) so getting moving is going to be more imperative, not to mention while the couch is certainly comfy and I do love me some trashy tele, getting moving and schweaty always makes me feel amazing and sometimes I lose sight of that.
As for the Army 10, I’m not going for a PR or anything, I’m running to finish because I know I can’t commit to training the way I want to but I want to run it for the sake that I stayed up til midnight to register for that bia and I will effing run it. Not to mention I have FOUR races left to get in my 12 races for this year (on my 30 before 30 list) and this is my last really big one (Marine Corps 10k, JLA Volunteers on the Run 5k, Turkey Trot 10k, and the Girls on the Run 5k in December are the other races I’ve got on my schedule to get me to 12/13 for this year).
