3tt- Summer Virtual 5k/10k & Vacation Countdown

1. Have you seen/registered for the Summer Virtual 5k/10k yet?
If not what are you waiting for?? Looks like some great prizes are up for grabs! And who doesn't run at least a 5k on any given day??

2. Last week I told about my upcoming 5miler race and how I really want to do well. My time last year was 43:30 and I would really like to at least 42:30 this year. Last night I went on a group run with some friends and my goal was to be able to keep up with my fast friend Twila (although she doesn't think of herself as being fast right now, she really is:). I was shocked and amazed that I was able to keep up with her for 4.15mi, but she kinda tricked me. At about the half way point she told me our pace was in the low 9's which I am good with holding however a little ways later she informed we was at 8:35! WOW I could have never done that on my own! Thank You Twila for showing me I am able to run like that and maybe just maybe I will hit my mark for the race Saturday!! I also hope to get in a couple of runs a week with her to help me get a little faster on my 5k's:)

3. I have been putting the countdown off but I think its now family and I will be going on our first family beach vacation in 16 days:))) We are going to Panama City Beach, FL! The hubz and I have been to Myrtle Beach and Cancun Mexico but our girls never went with us so this will be their first beach experience, bet you couldn't guess that they are SUPER EXCITED as well as I am:) Although my youngest daughter has told me we will be on vacation and I shouldn't be running since it IS vacation, I'm looking for a 4th of July 5k to do while there. Can anyone HELP ME OUT??? PS- I told her there is no vacation from running:)
