Three Things Thursday

1.  I am skipping out on work tomorrow and tonight Brian and I are heading to his parents house to stay.  Tomorrow night (7pm) we have the 5k race, which we also ran last year. The course is very flat and through a nice little neighborhood which is really the most enjoyable race for me. Last year my time was 22:18 and Brian's was 25:52.  I would love to PR and run under 21:37 but we will just see how it goes with the heat and humidity!

2.  This is one of two races that I run in the evening.  I know that on my training runs I tend to run faster in the evening compared to the morning...Well I guess that was mainly true  in the winter since I was running in below freezing temps in the morning.  I just wonder if this same concept pertains to summer running since it is basically 60F++ in the mornings and nights!

3. Saturday morning we are returning to home and then a few hours later heading out across the state for Brian's nephews baptism!  It has been a while since we have seen him and I can't wait! Apparently he is smiling and giggling now!

It is going to a be a busy weekend!!  Happy Thursday!
