Well as the title may suggestion, my long weekend in the city was awesome. Birthday dinner, tailgating, Terps (football) winning the home opener, tennis with a friend.
It totally rocked.
It was nice to finally have a day off from work. I get a whole two vacation days in my first year at this job so let me tell you how much I love holidays.
On the running front, I think I've found a comeback race. It's just a 5K in the middle of October, but I did it last year and it was a lot of fun. It's the Komen Race for the Cure in Maryland.
The best part about it is I convinced a bunch of my friends to do it with me. None of them really run regularly, but a couple of them have said they'd like to do a 5K sometime, and they all like that it benefits breast cancer. So they're in.
So it will be a blast and I'm really excited. Plus I haven't followed a training plan in so long.
I know I don't really need to follow one for a 5K, but I think I'm going to just for the heck of it. I'm thinking Hal Higdon's intermediate plan, but I have to look at it a little more closely and then format it to my schedule. I'll work something out in the next few days! Hooray for having a race on the agenda! I'll register in a few weeks, just want to make sure the knee holds up through the first few weeks of training.
