Win some, lose some, try and finish smiling :)

Pre-race goofing. p.s. how unimpressed does this girl look behind us? hehe

Ok so I don’t usually “win” races and I wouldn’t say I typically “lose” them either…but I definitely try and finish smiling. This weekend was the Nipika Crazy Soles 10k (and 25k for the dedicated folks) run. Always a favorite of mine, I was eager to run the amazing trails and thrilled that Ann was home to enjoy them with me!

Go time

It was definitely not my finest hour (and a bit ;)). You know those times when your mind and your legs are in sync (no not the boy band) and they are saying the same thing: “I’m tired, I don’t want to go faster”…well that’s exactly what my body was telling me. I took it easy on the run, enjoyed the trails and was just happy to finish smiling and to share the day with good friends.
