I also hadn't done any runs since the See Jane Run HM a week ago so hubby and I decided to go check out the Cherry Pickers Trot at Greenbluff in Mead, WA this past Thursday. It's a 4 mile family fun run close to town. I didn't even think we'd make it there since hubby got in late from work.
The other morning I took DD to the airport. She's flying to Wyoming to see R and spend Frontier Days in Cheyenne. Looks and sounds like fun but it's gonna be H-O-T!!!
Smalls had a peanut butter-to-go the night before she left.
But we managed to make it there. Hubby had to drop me off as they had the roads blocked off for the runners. I had to walk up 1.5 mile of a hill and with 3 minutes left before the *starting gun* was to go off, I paid $10 to register for the race and off we went. It was perfect weather -- low 60's and lots of kids and teens as well.
I had never run this race before and I wasn't familiar with the course. It was a 4 mile run through Greenbluff's orchard country on paved roads. What I didn't realize was that 2 miles out 4 was all uphill. Holy hamstrings!
Me -- whizzing by hubby and Smallsie at the side of the road.
I finished in 36:13.
I had a lot of fun and it was good to get the lead legs going again after some days off.
Any plans this weekend? Any festivals and shenanigans?
