Mamavation Monday–5K number 3!

This post is sponsored by Pete Cohen and Mamavation – a community dedicated to obesity prevention & weight loss for women and I’m writing this to be entered into a giveaway

I am sitting here trying to recover from a super busy weekend, but after a month long hiatus from running, I am feeling my love for it once again!

So, on Friday my husband and brother-in-law went to a Mets game and my sister and I hung out with the kiddos and ordered sushi and pizza, drank some wine and watched some TV.  It was a fun, relaxing night!

On Saturday morning, I was up early to meet some friends for the Color Me Rad 5K! I was super-excited and a little nervous because friends of my friends that we were running with are really fast. Like, they run close to 20-minute 5Ks! Luckily, they slowed up a bit for the race but I was still really pushing myself to keep up.  There were a few times I had to walk and catch my breath because I wasn’t used to running that fast.  I’m glad I pushed myself though and I’m thinking about starting up interval training again. The group I ran with was a lot of fun so it would be nice to run with them again without dying!

2013-04-27 09.49.373rd 5K of 2013!

Later that night, my mom came over to watch the kids so my husband and I 2013-04-27 22.36.53could go out.  She had bought my husband tickets to see a Beatles cover band for his birthday and they were absolutely amazing. So talented.

I had woken up at 5:45 that morning for the race and we didn’t get home from the concert until 11, so it was a busy day of running, dancing and singing my heart out. Excellent.

Sunday morning came quick! When we woke up we took out a hand-me-down sectional couch we had in the playroom to make way for some new hand-me-down furniture. Then we went to a baptism for a family friend’s new baby and a picnic afterwards, came home, went to pick up the new furniture and moved it into the house.  It is so nice to know that there are no toys, crumbs or dust under any of my couches right now.  I spent the majority of last night with my butt glued to the new couch. I was exhausted! But, I love keeping busy.

I hope everyone has a great week & that this post wasn’t too boring with me blabbering on. Ha!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend!!

    Congrats on running your 3rd 5k!!! I am wayyyyy too intimidated to run one, though the color ones look fun! I kinda stink at running... I love it, but I have to run/walk which is lame... And slow! I think if I had to I might finish on 40 minutes... I'm hoping that interval training and dropping some weight will help me speed up *fingers crossed*

    Have a great week Hun

  2. Oh girl you did an awesome job! I hear the color runs are a lot of fun but I have been out of racing for a while now due to injury. I sort of go back and forth. I get well and then I push it and then I go right back or worse. Arg, but hey you killed it!!!! Way to relax too! It's nice to just relax. Thank you for the reminder.
