Fit Prego: I still got it!

20130715-101126.jpgThis week was kinda awesome!  I did what I didn't think I had still in me.  After my lack of running regularly, I pulled two days in a row with my friend, Emily, and it felt great!

Really it was like the stars all aligned for me.  The hubby came home on Thursday and let me know he had the day off Friday.  That meant...I could go to the Stroller Warrior work out and make it to my packet pick up for the Sand-Sational all while getting in a little me time.  YAY!

Ok well...not all the stars aligned.  The rain came in and cancelled the workout but Emily was still out with her marathon training so I hopped on the last 4 miles with her!

After a bit of driving around and confusion from the change in locations, we got our packets and were on our way!

The Sand-sational was a challenging run for me.  I hadn't had much beach running training in, but I finished and surprisingly...around the same speed I've been holding since the Diva half marathon 10 weeks ago.  Yay for this Fit Prego!  And a serious filled with awesomeness YAY for a friend that will not worry about her internet results all to keep you company all the run through!
