Today was the 2016 annual Moose Run 25k and I lived to tell about it. ;) *This run is famous for its hills. Gulp.
Yesterday I decided that since I missed a run day on Wednesday a schedule switch-a-roo would be just fine with 7 easy miles on Saturday.
I shuffled on and then 1/2 mile from the house the sun came out again. So weird.
This morning Marg, Sam and I headed over to Cow Bay for the 10 a.m. start of the Moose Run 25k. It was a GORGEOUS first day of Spring and what better way to celebrate the season than with a run? with friends?! :)
Matt met us there and took part in our mini pre-race photo shoot. ;)
|I thought this picture was funny, lol.|
A couple miles in (maybe 3?) at the first water stop Tim Chessnut captured Christine and I in our hydration nation. This picture makes me giggle.
Here's a better one:
This picture is my favourite! Look at our strides!!
We ran pretty smart today and finished in 2:09. I was super glad to have conquered the hills of Cow Bay!
A group of us neighbourhood runners took part in the post-race eating festivities which included yummy warm beans, cookies and coffee.

Now onto some groundbreaking news:
Lola got a haircut!!!! <3
This was her reaction when I pulled her out of bed yesterday morning:
|"I have to go WHERE today?"|
All done! <3
And then Princess Lola was all tuckered out from her day at the doggie spa that she requested nothing but naps for the remainder of the day, lol.
I hope you had a super fab weekend and thanks for popping on over to the GGR blog!
