I’m loving my new 20/15 vision but am definitely getting the itch to go out and train. A few more days…
In the meantime, I’ve got some fun stuff going on. I told you a couple of months ago about the photo shoot my friends and I were involved in for a local women’s magazine. The issue came out the other day and I think the picture turned out pretty cool–take a look.
I’m also excited because I won a free entry to the DC edition of the Naked Foot 5k at the end of June! I had my eye on this race anyhow and then got lucky enough to win an entry from fellow FitFluential ambassador MFDRE. The course isn’t revealed until the morning of the race and it promises to involve some cross country miles. Runners are encouraged to run either in minimalist shoes or completely bare foot. I think I’m going for the full monty on this one. I’ve put in enough miles in my Altra Zero Delilahs to feel that my feet are strong enough, plus I spend the majority of my time in my bare feet even when not running. I’ll probably do a little bit of bare foot running in between now and then to further prepare. I’m excited for this one!
And speaking of cross country–our running club, along with local race promotor Bullseye Running, puts on a six-week cross country series over the summer. The events are held on Friday nights at local high schools. Do three of the six and you get a free tech shirt. The best part? Entry is only $5. I plan to get my kids out there for several of them, beginning this Friday. Good stuff.
Anyone else running one of the Naked Foot 5k events? How about here in DC?
