1. Favorite race outfit
From the Rock ‘n’ Roll USA Half Marathon this past March. I had just gotten back from the Disney Princess Half and was tutu’ed and pink stuff’d OUT. Had to rep my favorite rock ‘n’ roller at a rock ‘n’ roll race. Plus I loved the gun metal color of my Sparkle Skirt. Felt very rockstar.
Definitely the Brooklyn Half, I think. Every race has their own special place in my heart – the first for being my first, and each one has their own flair, but Brooklyn was fun from the moment I got on the bus up to New York til the moment I stepped off it back home in Maryland. It was also the first race back from injury where I ran strong.
The 10K. Whether a race or in training, it is just long enough to be a challenge and just short enough to amp up the speed. That middle-distance is what makes it feel like such a great workout. I run it hard, but it doesn’t run me into the ground.
“Daydreaming” by Paramore. It’s the perfect tempo – it feels like mid-tempo but it actually gets really rolling. And the burst into the chorus always gives me a burst of energy, both in my body and in my heart.
Body Pump. No one is shocked.
So there you have it! Kept it short and sweet this week because I’m a bit busy at work and TONIGHT SPEAKING OF PARAMORE IS THEIR CONCERT. Which is my ACTUAL favorite form of cross-training – getting my face melted at a rock show. HAPPY WEEKEND Y’ALL.
