Saturday morning started with my very first trail run- The Bloomin’ Festival 5K. I only did it because of total peer pressure from Robbie and Kelsie. It was definitely fun with them. My goal was to finish. I haven’t run outside since Disney and most definitely haven’t been training for hills. The race was described as a trail run in the woods with some gravel with a steep hill at mile 2. Umm. The hill at .25 mile was pretty intense and I’m going to say that at that point I wondered what I had gotten myself into. It had sprinkled that morning, had 98% humidity and was 67 degrees. And I was running in mud, gravel, and pine needles literally in the woods and never had any clue where I was. The race was at St Bernard- the catholic and prep school in our town. I got lost in there trying to turn in my application. No water on the course and we were dying.
We also got to jump over creeks. Fun times.
The finish line was literally running through the goal posts.

|I like the way this girl is eyeing Robbie|
|Hi. I’m awkward and mess with my shirt while trying to cross finish lines.|
|Dork. Total Dork.|
|Water please. So I don’t vomit.|
|Um. Not sure.|
|I’m just awkward.|
|Kelsie is either a cheerleader or Wonder Woman. You decide.|

We then enjoyed a day of shopping and eating with Robbie and Rebecca. Seriously. Love these two. They are going on a cruise next week and won’t be around for my birthday. How dare they?? Anyway, Becca wanted to give me my birthday present- which was just perfect. I will reveal all my loot at a later date.
