Today I PR’d! Not that this is difficult when your run at a turtle’s pace.
I enjoyed the Sunrise 5K at the Alamo Heights Pool. It was the most crowded race I’ve done in awhile. I unfortunately started out too far in the front of the pack with the rabbits, and this killed me in my time by the last mile…so tired! Farm Boy was waiting for me at the last 300 meters and actually ran alongside me, that is until I waved him off cause I thought I needed all the air I could get. I was so HOT! My personal trainer ran the race as well, and waited to “cheer” me on at the end.
Even Instagram can’t hide my tired eyes! lol This is Lauren my trainer. If you don’t know me, she is obviously the fitter one.
Typically when we workout she is all sweet and positive. Today she was standing about 100 meters from the finish line and she gave me the meanest “DON’T SLOW DOWN” yell I’ve ever heard. It worked. I hauled it in at 35 mins and 45 seconds. That is an 11:31 min mile pace. Not bad. My new turtle name is Trot. Trot the Tortoise or Hot to Trot?
After running the Sunrise 5K this morning, I was starving…for NEW SHOES!
Luckily, this is tax-free weekend in Texas. This can only mean one thing.
Every store is packed and likely out of your size.
Unless you are smart like me, and you go to the local stores like The Shoe Club in the Quarry Market area (across from the Quarry).
I left with THREE pairs of fabulousness.
I’m in love my new ballet flats. I could probably buy a pair in every color if I won the lottery. They are buttery soft, with enough flexibility to wear comfortably. I will have to see if they pass the teacher death stand test.
The third pair is the most fabulous, but I’m saving them for after Labor Day. I’ll give you a hint.
They are from the fall TOMS collection.
Did you do any Back to School Shopping this weekend?
