A race this weekend and new gear

Posted Jan 31 2014 6:14am

Happy Friday!  Any fun plans?

I’m excited to say for the first time in months that I have a race on the calendar tomorrow!

Well, not really a “race”… but I signed up for a local trail run.  They’re hosting a 5k, 10k and half marathon option and I decided on the 10k.  It’s supposed to be one of the warmest days of the week (even hitting 40 -heat wave!) and there’s no pressure to move very quickly on a trail, right?

I plan to take my time and enjoy the fresh air and running with a bib in a race again.  I realize it could be a lot harder than a typical 10k… I really don’t know much about the course or what to expect, but regardless, it will be a fun adventure.  At least, I hope I can report back some good news.  :)

And in perfect timing, some new running clothes appeared at my door this week:

Lorna Jane running gear

Lorna Jane contacted me and asked if I’d like to try some of their gear.  I chose a bright pink sports bra (doesn’t every girl need one of those?), a purple tank and running tights.  The sports bra is cute enough (and conservative enough) that I could possibly see myself wearing it sans shirt in the summer.

I love the purple tank- it’s really comfortable, with a built in sports bra…. perfect for running or teaching a spin class.

The tights will get their first trial run at the race tomorrow… they are also a perfect fit, for now.  The expanding belly will outgrow them soon but I needed another pair of tights in my winter running rotation for the future.

Running has been feeling really good this week.  I hope this keeps up for the magical second trimester!

What’s the next race on your calendar?

Do you have running plans for the weekend?
