Girls on the Run

30 Aug

And now a little break from the house tour to talk about something else near and dear…running!   I usually need to sign up for a race in order to get motivated to run, so I’m often training for something.  Right now I’m preparing for the Baltimore Running Festival on October 16th.

 

I’ve done the 5K and the Half so I’m excited to be doing the Relay this year.  The whole festival is a really fun event and a great day for the city.  The streets close down and everything is devoted to the race.  I’m running the last leg which means I get to cross the finish line.  Hooray.  The other members of the team are my friends Stef, Amy, and Maggie.

Stef and Amy were division one athletes in college and Maggie is a super accomplished marathon and triathlon gal.  We signed up as the Pink Ladies and we’re planning to wear all pink for the race.   October is also breast cancer awareness month, so it’s fitting.  GO TEAM PINK!!

    If you want to practice the relay part, we can play dizzy izzy in Patterson Park. We’ll need a keg of beer and a few more people.
