George Sheehan Classic 5k

The George Sheehan Classic was the very first 5k Brian and I had ever ran in 2013, and we are trying to keep up a tradition of running it every year. We had originally signed up year 1 because the advertisement we saw said “Fast, Flat, Course.” If any of you reading this have ever run this race, you know that this description is not entirely accurate. See, this race not only has hills, but it has one very ominously named Tower Hill at the start of mile 3. As someone once said to me, any hill that has it’s own name is bad!

The elevation gain on Tower Hill - it's no joke!

Five Favorite Summer Activities

Happy Friday Everyone!

I'm trying something new this week and participating in my very first Friday Five link up hosted by Cynthia of "You signed up for what" , Courtney of Eat Pray Run DC, and Mar from Mar on the run. Be sure to check out their blogs and the other blogs on the link up!

The summertime is all about enjoying the great outdoors, so here are my 5 favorite things to do, in no particular order:

1. The Pool

Just looking at this picture makes me want to jump in!

The day my husband and I open our pool each year is the day summer officially starts for us. It’s great for relaxing or going for a swim, which is a great cardio workout. I’m not the best swimmer yet but i’m working on it!
