Not Running This Year’s Across the Bay 10k

6 Nov

For the second year in a row, my friend Lindsey and I registered to do the Across the Bay 10k. This was actually going to be our third 10k of the year – we did the Sole of the City 10k in April and the Wayfarers Annapolis 10k in June. For someone who always said I have no interest in running more than a 5k, that’s pretty incredible!

We actually really enjoyed the Bay 10k last year (read it here) so we stuck with the same plan of me driving to Annapolis to meet up for dinner and drinks, before I spend the night and then wake up early in the morning for the run.

That was the plan.
That did not happen.

Sure, we did dinner.
Sure, we did drinks.


And more drinks.
And a little more drinks.
Annnnnnnd, we got back around 2am and slept in. Skipping the run.
Oops.

This is my hangover face.

Instead of getting up early and running, we woke up late and got breakfast. And coffee. ALL the coffee.

After we felt a bit more human we did some shopping – Marshalls, Nordstrom Rack, a nearby thrift store. I found an AMAZEBALLS sweater that I’m obsessed with (sneak peak) and can’t wait to share what I thrifted (soon). Oh, and more food… this time with ALL the French fries.

Sure, we didn’t run. But this weekend was exactly what I needed. Some great girlfriend time + lots of yummy food + more girlfriend time.

Maybe we’ll try to run the 10k again next year…

    Aw wellll, that stuff happens. I think your inner self tells you what it needs, and, this time it needed food, drinks, and shopping! And, of course, time with your friend.

    LOL. Of course, I wouldn’t have even thought I would do the run in the first place. Sounds like you had a blast!
