Good morning and happy Saturday again!
Similar to last weekend, I’m up nice and early for a race – this time a half marathon with my mom in Millarville. I’m 100% undertrained for this, but I’m doing this for run and not for time and will recap my experience on Monday. As this goes live, I’ll already be on the road to park and hop on the bus as this is a point-to-point race and I am soooooo pumped! Since I’m running for fun, be sure to check in on Snapchat (or maybe even Facebook live?!) for updates.
I’ll be finishing off the weekend at my mom’s as a float in her pool sounds like an excellent way to recover from a race 🙂
