Happy Monday! I am linking up with Heather and the Hello Monday girls to share my Medal Monday!
I am a week late sharing my medals, but we were having a blast at the beach last week and I didn’t get to posting. I have 2 medals to share today. This is pretty unusual for me but I had two events finish at the same time.
My BRF (Best Running Friend) Jamie and I ran the Dreamer virtual run together. This is our 6th Fellow Flowers virtual run, and the 5th that we’ve done together.
Fellow Flowers created a virtual run series to focus on the flowers. I love that these virtual runs don’t have a specific distance. You pick the distance that fits you and the flower. Dreamer was the 4th flower run. With each run, there is a flower medal and a flower charm. I add the tanktop or tshirt too. The dreamer tank top is AMAZING!!! It is super soft and comfy!
We decided to run 5 miles. I haven’t run that far in weeks and was feeling a bit worried about it. I was dreading the distance all day on Thursday, but I got up Friday morning determined to do it. We talked and caught up over the course of those 5 miles and I felt great afterwards! I really think I could have run a few more miles. We settled into a comfortable pace and the conversation kept me going.
The Dreamer, white flower, hasn’t really been my flower, but Jamie told me that it was a perfect fit after running and rereading the description.
It’s not too late to sign up and run the Dreamer! Check it out here.
I did the Zooma Summer Challenge this year. I didn’t follow the training plan exactly but I did add some swimming, yoga, and sporadic pushups, planks, etc. that I wouldn’t have done otherwise. The last week of the challenge was a progressive half marathon. I finished my 13.1 miles early on Saturday morning.
Look at the beautiful sunrise!! No filters, just sunshine at its finest!
The Zooma challenge comes with a fun swag bag. I love the tank top this year! It is sooo soft and comfy! It is actually very similar to the Dreamer tank top. It took me a little while to realize that the same printer did both shirts, so that makes good sense. I discovered Feetures socks in Zooma swag bags and love them! I only run in Feetures. The swag bag also had a luggage tag, hat, and a great size reusable bag.
I’d love to hear any thoughts on virtual runs or if you have any that you love!
I don’t have anything to train for right now, but I am looking. There is some freedom in running whatever distance I feel like running. I enjoy the structure of a training plan to keep me moving. Any good races coming up? I think a 10k is a good distance for the fall and I’d like to run another half marathon in the spring.
Have a great week full of sunshine and books!
