Weekend Snapshots

A day late that is! I was darn tired Sunday night and opted to delay this post and to be honest almost did another day but then it would have never been done.

Saturday we had a long walk to visit a couple parks, we are lucky to live close to the trails and these parks but don’t get out to them enough! Despite the clouds we only had about 5 minutes of rain 🙂

Slightly tired after 😉

Sunday morning I was up bright and early to head to the Edmonton Lululemon 10km race! The race itself was great, Lululemon put on an awesome race – just like Sea Wheeze and I cannot wait to go back next summer. I was in the first corral so dealt with minimal congestion which was an added bonus.

The course lived up to what I read it was, fast and flat, with only one small hill. It was an out and back course – my favourite for a few reasons with some straight away that allowed me to keep a decent pace.

I was pretty even with my splits, 30 seconds slower the first half, probably due to the start congestion. It is amazing how fast a 10km course goes, and I barely remember most of the race! I finished at 46:26 – a new 10km PR for me by 2 minutes!

Finish line, sadly all my finish line photos look to have a flare 🙁

Afterwards, I grabbed some food, checked out the vendors etc before meeting other friends running the race! There was post run yoga but since I had a busy day ahead I hit the road early to get home.

That afternoon we went to the fair – a summer highlight for us! The girls loved the rides, and it made our day that they can now go on rides together!

I cannot believe it is heading into the end of July already – how!? I think I am in denial!
