High Five Friday

Hello Sports fans!! (I have always wanted to say that) And welcome to FRIDAY! This has been a LONG and busy week for me, so I am excited to unleash some pent up STRESS at my 5K race tomorrow!! The little town of Enumclaw will play host to a 5K road race, if my legs don't give me issues I should get a PR!! When you wear shoes like these you are pretty much forced to run FAST.
Yes Sports fans (there I go again) my Brooks Green Silence HERE will be making their racing debut tomorrow. With a matching red and black outfit. These shoes are super light weight and cozy, like running in nothing, perfect for a FAST 5K.
And the talented Emily Deschler at Deschler Designs HERE sent me an adorable black polka dot headband to top the outfit. So if you are in Enumclaw and see a TALL gal in a red tank, running skirt, crazy McDonalds looking shoes and a polka dot headband, say "Hi" I will be HARD to miss :)

My running has been less than stellar this week. Yesterday my awesome Boss bought the office lunch, SCORE!! Then I got a text from my college buddy that she was bringing her 3 kiddos and hubby for a visit. No time to run, but so worth every non running minute!! My legs are WELL RESTED!

Hahaha I love outrageously-colored shoes like those. So much more interesting than the standard white/silver/accent color ;)

I'm planning a virtual race for a month from now... can that be included soon? Thanks! :)
