Happy 4th and this amazingly long weekend, yall! As I sit in my apartment, I've come to the conclusion I'd like to take an actual vacation, as in not attached to a race. There, I said it. Don't get me wrong, race-cations are fab, but sometimes you just need to get out of the city and enjoy doing nothing. AmIRight?! I can't remember the last time I took a good old fashioned vacation and I think it's about time. Now, who would like to sponsor it? :)
B and I celebrated this holiday by rocking a double-header at the movies. We started the day with some Monsters University (super cute and much better than I thought it was going to be), broke for lunch then followed it up with The Heat (pee your pants funny. seriously). We don't usually go to the movies for a myriad of reasons, but I think it was a great change of pace and an awesome way to spend the day.
And in case you missed the "official" announcement, runDisney is adding a 10k to the Tink weekend- no challenge though. My original thought was "Why would you run both if there isn't a challenge?!" Then I remembered I ran the Half and the Relay 2 years ago and that wasn't an official challenge. Just from that thought alone, I think we've been spoiled. Kudos, rD. I love that you're adding another distance, but I think without the challenge, you might get more new people to experience your magic. Now, I'm just waiting for them to announce the 10k addition to Wine and Dine- what if it was ALL on one day- the 5k, the 10k followed by the Half Marathon?! Now that would be a challenge.
How are you celebrating the 4th?
