I'm linking up with Holly and Tricia this week for the Weekly Wrap.
Thursday: Zumba at the Y
Saturday: Kennett Run 5K
Sunday: Zumba with Susan and 5 miles easy run
This week was lazy, and recovery from the Half Marathon. I had hoped to get in at least one speed training, but it was so hot on Wednesday and Thursday, that I skipped the speed. I regret it a little... but only a little.
Thursday we had a scorching hot baseball game, I kept forcing my son to drink water at his baseball game. Everybody was there to see him play my sister, and his grandparents, He felt like a rock star!
On Saturday we were at Kennett Square PA , for our annual family run. My sister Maria and I have been doing this race, this will be our 8th year running it (6th consecutive). This year the route was changed around to start in the Anson B Nixon park, and go trough Downtown Kennett Square.
I bombarded Instagram with pictures, and here they are again.
On Sunday I went to Zumba with Susan, one of my favorite ever Zumba instructors. I love going to her class, I smile and laugh so much that my entire face is sore after class.
After zumba, it was time for my easy 5 mile recovery run. I was tired and hot, and wanted to cut the run short at 4 miles, but pushed through. There is a section of Camp Hill I don't like to run, it's a small uphill and an empty church parking lot, but about .20 of a mile... my heart wanted to skip this section, but my brain forced me to run it, and it was a good thing! I found a wallet on the ground on the way into the parking lot!
I looked around to see if anybody around looked like they were looking for a wallet, but the parking lot was empty. I paused my watch and picked up the wallet and the $10 next to it; and kept on running. I made the loop of the parking lot and realized that I didn't re-start my watch and lost on the distance... whatever... I ran the last mile holding the heavy wallet. And as soon as I was back to my car, looked up the person on Facebook and send them a message to arrange the wallet pick up.
2 hours later, I met the owner of the wallet and returned it to her. She said that her and her family had been going crazy looking for it, and was glad that I had found it, the thought she lost it while out in a bike ride. She gave me a generous reward... I told her that I couldn't accept it, but she shoved the money in my hand and took off saying that she couldn't accept a no for an answer.
I'm am still reading Marathon Woman, but at work I'm listening to A Fighting Chance by Elizabeth Warren. I admire her so much on all the work she has done!
This will be a short and busy week at work, I'm excited for a few days off for the holiday.
