Today's workout was a tempo run. 7 miles total with 5 miles at an 8:03 pace. We met early at the gym to hit the treadmills and I'm not gonna lie it felt great to push my body and do some speed work.
Then I went straight from the gym to find my SIL at the Freedom Festival 5K. I was planning on pacing her for the run but never found her on the race. Sad. I'm so proud of her for training and doing the run - nothing better than meeting a goal! And even though I didn't find her I saw so many people I know. My sisters hubby and his brother were running the race all decked out so I ran along side them for a bit to say hello and snap a quick picture. I saw people from work, from my spin class, friends from out of town, girls from my Ragnar team - tons and tons of people. It was so much fun. Maybe I should do the run next year.
