This was a slow week, but some running and errands still got done.
Thank you Holly and Tricia for hosting the Weekly Wrap post! Linking up with these super awesome ladies today.
Thursday: Weights and 4 miles
Friday: Weights and 4 miles Progression (I put myself on repeat)
Saturday: 2 mile hike at Ohiopyle State Park
Sunday: 11 mile long run
After 2 weekends of races, I didn't know what to do with myself while not on taper mode, it was like I forgot how to be on training mode. I also didn't know what to do with no race on my weekend... but I managed to find something to do.
On Friday I headed to TJ Maxx and was just looking around while I found shoes for work! I know this doesn't sound very exciting, but it was!! I have been looking for plain black shoes for work for the last year! My old comfy shoes at work are on their very last leg, like barely holding together.
On Saturday, after my son's soccer game, we finally headed out to Ohiopyle State Park. This park has been on our list of places to visit for over 2 years, and we were sad that it took us this long to get there! It was amazing! We did a very short hike, and took lots of pictures.

Last week I signed up for my first ever Virtual race. Last year I found the Hogwarts Running Club, and have been wanting to do a virtual race with them, but kept missing the sign ups. I signed up for the Plataform 9 3/4 K (6.058 miles), but I didn't have any 6 mile runs until next month, so I switched it to a 9 3/4 Miles, because I had a long run scheduled for Sunday. The Race benefits Carry The Future, an agency helping Refugee families with Children.
Sunday after I picked up my son, we had a little scare. We were vacuuming my car, when a bee stung my son! He started yelling that it hurt, and it stung, but the vacuum was so loud that I didn't hear when he said he got stung by a bee. I kept asking what was wrong, and he kept saying it hurt. Then it clicked, I had seen a bee a minute before. I quickly (but not calmly), put him in the car and drove us to the nearest pharmacy. I kept asking him if he could breath, and he kept yelling that it hurt! I got him some Benadryl, an ice pack, After Bite medicine, and a donut. The donut is a Mexican superstition, that if you have a sudden scare, you need to eat something sweet. He was ok, and now we know, he is not allergic to bees! <-- this incident made me age 3 years!
Are you allergic to bees?
How comfy are your work shoes? Or do you wear your stylish shoes to work?
Tell me about your Virtual races!
Do you deal with emergencies calmly?
