Reindeer Run – Race Recap

This past Saturday I ran the Reindeer Run 5K. I originally was going to go it alone, but as luck would have it, I ran into a friend just as the race started. Christine and I met through mutual friends many an event ago. I was so glad to run into her because we pretty much run the same race pace, so it was nice to have a buddy to keep me moving along.

Here’s our official time {I couldn’t find hers on the website, but we finished within seconds of each other}:

Now I was much happier with this race result chip time…I feel like it was much more accurate than my chip times have been in past races. Here are my RunKeeper stats for comparison. Again, my time started a tad earlier than when I first crossed the start line:

After the race was a blast. We enjoyed free post-race beers at the Southend Brewery and were just being goofy girls dancing to the live band playing. It felt good to get out and let loose – it has been a while for me!

I was definitely sore with a headache later in the day, but it was worth it.


Monday Musings

Another weekend gone by too quickly. I definitely had a great time though. I started it off right by heading out to do the Reindeer Run downtown. I love this race…everyone gets so festive, some of the costumes are just plain crazy, but I love it. It’s an official kickoff to Christmastime here in Charleston.

I luckily saw one of my friends, Christine, right as the race started and we ended up running it together. Afterward, we enjoyed some free post-race beers {maybe a little more than planned} and had a great time dancing as the live band played at Southend Brewery on East Bay St.

I will admit, I was feeling the pain later as I was nursing a headache and hit the hay early. Guess I’m definitely not 21 anymore! But it was definitely fun to let loose and have some girl time. {I’m in a house full of testosterone after all.}

On Sunday, hubby and I started work on the next part of our kitchen makeover – the cabinets. We are painting them white. {See our other kitchen updates here and here.} Here’s a sneak peek for you:

The white is making such a difference already. I cannot stand that builder’s standard maple cabinet color. Things are really coming together in this space. Can’t wait to share the finished cabinets with you – and eventually the entire makeover!

Hope y’all had a great weekend!
