My calf muscle survived the 5K!
Thanks everyone for the well-wishes! I still don’t know what’s wrong with it, but I managed to finished the race in 23:14.
- Distance – 3.14 miles
- Time – 23:14
- Average Pace – 7:24
Despite my annoyance with myself, the Run for the Park was a great race. Lee ended up running it too!
I crossed the line with the 1st place female in my age group (4th overall). That’s so frustrating to me because I know if I’d just pushed 1 second faster… but whatever. The course wasn’t too hilly, but I was ridiculously sore from a kickboxing-filled week. Because it makes soooo much sense to do that instead of run when your leg is hurt. *rolls eyes*
Lee and I went our separate ways to get cleaned up before coming back to the park for the Corks and Forks Festival.
On the drive back, I saw a tree wearing a leg warmer. Doesn’t that tree know it’s 95 degrees?! #onlyinatlanta
Corks and Forks was a blast.
Maybe a few too many corks were popped…
They had themed chandeliers that I would put in my home! In case you ant make it out – those are wine bottles, ribbons, and forks stabbing corks.
We got to witness (and taste!) a steak-grilling competition. I took some stealth bites photos of the judge’s steaks.
#2 and 3 were both REALLY good, but in the end my favorite won – #2!
Corinne and I were so excited for our turn to sample, Lee could barely get a picture!
Normal people might end their day here. We are not normal.
Corinne and I ate dinner (yes, after all that we still cleaned our plates) and headed to see Grace Potter and the Nocturnals play and my favorite outdoor amphitheater.
They put on a GREAT show. Grace has such a big voice and the energy was radiating from the stage. If you ever have a chance to catch them in your town, I recommend it!
We didn’t feel like going home… but all I will tell you there was a pink flamingo involved.
Here’s the weekly recap. I mentioned Saturday that I didn’t run all week due to calf pain. Sunday I actually felt better and cranked out 7 miles! Hopefully I won’t regret that later…
