This is how I feel right now. I’m recovering from running the DIVAS Half Marathon through beautiful Virginia Wine Country. 13.1 is no joke, but it was really fun.
P.S. Vito is not dead. He’s just totally zonked out and his tongue is trying to escape from his mouth. Plus, it’s sweater weather in Virginia <3
I ran the entire race with my good friend, Sarah. After picking up our packets at the gorgeous Landsdowne Resort, we had dinner in order to fuel our bodies for
war running. Here we are with matching brownie sundaes.
The next morning I woke up at 5am and didn’t even brush my hair.
I just did like Elsa and let it go.
We ran through Virginia vineyards, and some very posh neighborhoods of Loudoun County. It was lovely. The weather was perfect, nice and cool with a bit of a breeze. My only complaint is that the course was a bit hilly. A lot of people commented that there was no chance of setting a personal record due to the hills.
Yes, we’re in pink. Everyone was in pink. The DIVA races are super girly and fab-u-lous. We got tutus, tiaras, boas, and medals at the finish. We chatted the entire way, so it really took our minds off of how much we were straining ourselves. Sarah and I shared some sparkling cider and happy relief when all the miles were run.
Could these medal be any more perfect for this blog??
Do you run solo or with a friend? Do you also chafe from tutus?? Leave a reply!
