Words for Wednesday

 This weekend I’m running in my 7th annual Fifth Third Riverbank run! The years haven’t all been consecutive, but I love doing this run and try to make it as often as I could. Even when I lived in Chicago I would come home for the weekend just for the run. I do the 5k – which some years is no big deal and some years feels kind of hard! One of these times though I’m  going to do the 10k. I love all the excitement and having all the runners and cheering spectators around, it motivates me and helps keep me going through the run. The race is the largest 25k Road Race in the country, pretty cool.
We also have an unofficial tradition after every race, my family meets at a dive bar in town for bloody marys and usually end the morning with lunch at my favorite, Yesterdog.

Do you guys have any races planned for this Summer? I do like how training keeps me accountable and gives me a goal to work towards, I’m thinking about scheduling another run for the Summer so I don’t slack off on my running!
