Color, Beads, and Bacon Covered Donuts?
Saturday 5.69 mile run / 61:50
Monday 5 mile run / 52:11
My sister Erin came to town! She was running the Color Run Saturday morning and was staying for the Endymion parade later that day. The weather was overcast and cool. Perfect!
She looked great before and after! I ran the Color Run in November, and this one wasn’t sold out like the race in November, so I considered signing up with her to run, but decided to save my $50 for Disney! The shirts at this race were great: softer and cuter than the November race shirt.
While she was waiting for the race to start, I took off to for my first ‘long’ run since getting sick. I don’t ever carry my phone with me while I run, but I did this time so she could call me at the end of the race.
I started in City Park and ended up making a loop around most of the perimeter of the park. I jumped on the levee for a bit, and it was beautiful green grass as far as I could see.
My pace was so slow to begin with but by the end of the run, I was feeling pretty good. I kept my Garmin on, even though I knew it would be slow but ran by feel.
This morning’s run was much better, even though the middle miles were plagued by rain. I knew it didn’t matter what time of the morning I went out, I was destined to get rained on, but I just kept putting it off! It was cool out, so I wasn’t worried about getting wet, but I still came home and took a bubble bath and dried my hair quick. No sense in trying to get sick.
In between very little running, there was a lot of parading! Below are the highlights from the weekend.
Mardi Gras is almost over, and then it’s back to the regularly scheduled programming until Disney!
