Hello divas and happy Friday! Another week is winding down and I for one am super thrilled that the weekend is almost here. My plans this weekend are to relax, go for a long run and watch some football (next weekend will be much different). I hope you have had a fabulous week and have some equally fabulous plans for the weekend.
It is Friday here at Divas Run for Bling which means it’s time for another edition of 5 Things Friday. Each week I share 5 things here on the blog. Sometimes these things are tips, sometimes I share my future plans and sometimes I just share whatever is on my mind. I then link-up with the Friday Five Link-up with Eat Pray Run DC, Mar on the Run and You Signed Up for What.
This week’s theme is My Favorite ___. Since I just ran the Divas Half Marathon in Peachtree City, GA a couple of weeks ago, my fall race season has started. One down and four to go. With this in mind, I thought it would be a fun time to share my favorite race photos of 2014 so far. Since I don’t purely run half marathons (I use the run/walk method), I tend to take some pretty fun race photos and these are some of my favorites of this year. So enjoy.
This photo is from my recent run at the Divas Half. As you can see, it is one of the few races where I actually had a running partner (in this case my bestie of 16 years and running guru, Chris). It was a nice race (though a little on the humid side) and I had so much fun running with someone else.
Next we have a photo from the Braves Country 5K back in June. My sister ran it with me though we did not finish together. I was super excited about this particular race because I am a HUGE Atlanta Braves fan and, as you can see, got to finish inside Turner Field.
I just love this photo. It was my second half in 2 weeks back in March at Berry College in Rome, GA. Berry was my alma mater so I was thrilled to run around the extremely scenic campus. The building behind me in this photo is the Ford Buildings on the campus. It was my dorm for the first 2 years of college. You may also recognize it from the movie Remember the Titans (yes Denzel Washington was just outside my dorm room for about 2 weeks of my sophomore year 🙂 )
Can you tell I love selfies? This selfie was around mile 4 of the GA Publix Half Marathon back in March in Atlanta. Isn’t that a great view of the skyline?
Lastly, we have the Color Run. I had never done a color run before and jumped at the chance do run with my bestie and my sister. Oh and it was at the Atlanta Motor Speedway which was so much fun. I’m a bit of a NASCAR fan 🙂
Do you have any favorite race memories? What are your race plans for the fall?
