But before we get to that, let's go back to Thursday. Remember when I said the whole SD Family played hooky and went to Legoland? Well before that, I went on a trail run with some of my favorites!
My girls met me at 5:45 AM and we ran my favorite trails - Los Penasquitos Canyon. If you live in or are planning on visiting San Diego anytime soon, you must run here. They are gorgeous!
The best part of the run was being able to run with my Jamye after so long!
On Saturday, I laid low and on Sunday, I ran the Coast to Crest 5 Miler. So much fun because I wore my new Ella singlet with my red Spandits skirt.
Or was it because so many of my San Diego Moms Run This Town crew showed up?
Aren't they beautiful?! And we had mamas wear our Ink n Burn...
And our Spandits...
And our Hokas...
And our ProCompression socks...
And the race director? Jeff? Awesome! The race was so well organized, marked and the course was gorgeous!
Speaking of the course...it was pretty flat. A couple of mini inclines but that is it.
These two awesome ladies ran with me...MaryEllen and Lisa. I totally slowed them down but they were so sweet about it!
The miles were well marked. The turn arounds were too!
Everywhere you looked, there was beauty!
And I finished! 18th in my age group! Haha!
In fact, all of us finished!
Just in time to see Gerardo win first place OVERALL in the 5 miler! Awesome! He has become like a little brother to me because his big sister Cristina is one of my dearest friends!
And you won't quite believe the awesome race swag!
Wow! I can't wait for the next Seasick Events trail race - Carmel Valley 5K/10K/15K on September 17. Register or read more about it here. Fun fact: I used to live in Carmel Valley.
And finally, I am linking up with the hosted by and nd also with Megan! I am also linking up with #MotivateMe Monday, hosted by Run Mommy Run, Fitness Cheerleader and Running Rachel. I’m also joining up with Marathons & Motivation and Ilka’s Blog for Sunday’s Fitness & Food Link-up.
Have you ever done a trail race? I swear, if it wasn't for the possibility of seeing snakes, I would run trails more than I do! Do you enjoy trail running? What do you love about it? For me, I love easy it is on my body!
As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
