I hope everyone had a great weekend!!!!!
The Inaugural Runner’s World Half-Marathon and Festival was this weekend and I am so bummed that my stress fracture caused me to miss this awesome event 🙁
I was originally scheduled to attend but I just couldn’t be around so many runners while I am unable to run. I was most disappointed not to be able to see my friend Harold from A Veteran Runnah, we were hoping to meet up and record some video together. I owuld like to congratulate Harold on running the 5K in in 21:29, winning 2nd place for his age group and on running the 1/2 marathon in 1:41:24!!!!!! I have now lost all hope that we will ever be able to run together, unless of course Harold runs very slow with me!!!!!
Congrats to everyone who raced this weekend!!!!!!! I cannot wait to be running again!
While everyone was running their races, I was in Sesame Place with Chris and Abby. We had visited Sesame Place over the summer and had gotten a 2-day pass which needed to be used by next weekend, so with the weather forecast in our favor we decided to head on down to Langhorne.
Originally it was supposed to be a day trip, but Chris decided to go on Priceline.com and name his own price for a hotel room. Basically you just pick an area, what star and customer rating you want and then name your price for the night which can either be accepted or rejected, in which case you have the option to increase your price. The plus side is that you can usually get a great hotel for cheap, the negative is that you do not know what hotel you are getting until after it is book, but you do know the star and customer rating. We ended up paying $66 for one night at a Marriott Courtyard!!! It was a great hotel for an unbelievable price, I will definitely doing this more often!!!
If you are a little adventurous and looking for a great price for a hotel room, then I suggest checking out Priceline.com!!!!
Last Monday I posted about Mike and his amazing transformation, a truely motivating story. This week I am going to share Shannon’s story from I Run Read Teach. In her own words, Shannon tells us how she started her running journey and how she has inspired others to run as well”
“Back at the end of Dec. I told my family I wanted to be able to run a 5k in 2012. My husband laughed at me. 🙂 I’m 5’1 and weighed 163. Short and fluffy.
