Spring in Seattle, at Greenlake via Instagram.
. . . . .
Wow. Excuse me while I dust off the cobwebs around here. It's been a while.
So many things have happened lately, so much I want to share, yet so much that I don't know what to share. Do you ever get that feeling?
Life has been going at a pretty fast pace for me. I'm running along with it, and it's great, but at the same time trying to find little breaks here and there to catch my breath.
Speaking of running, a few of my friends and I participated in the Nordstrom Beat the Bridge this past weekend. It's a run that fund-raises money to help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The event has several different courses (1 mile fun-run, 4 mile walk, and 8K race), and this was my second year running the 8K (4.9 miles). What I like most about this run is that you have approximately 20 minutes to "beat the bridge" at the 2-mile mark before it goes up. The first time I did this, I was a few minutes too late and had to wait on the "left behind" side for the bridge to go back down. Sad, I know. This year, my goal was to both beat the bridge, and run under one hour. Beat the bridge I did, and finished the race with a time of 55:57. Most likely the highlight of my weekend, muscle aches and all.
How's May going for everyone?
