We ran our marathon relay today. We finished in 4:37:51 and it was a fun thing to do. More about it later. I have to go outside since we are having a BBQ and everybody is waiting for me.
After a 3 hour delay in Detroit I was finally on my way to Amsterdam. I made my connection flight to Frankfurt with 10 mins to spare. Then I hopped on the train to meet my mom 1.5 hours later near my hometown at the train station. I was tired and sooo ready for a shower.
I also attended a Tupperware-Party the same night at my sister’s house and had a lot of fun there. Last night I went running with my mom’s local running group. They had a slower and a faster group and I went with the slow one. That was the right pace for me and I managed to run 4.6 miles - my blister didn’t hurt and it was the first run after IronGirl on Sunday. Today I meet some friends at a local restaurant/pub and we had a great night with some alcohol, delicious food and lots of laughter.
Did somebody ever do a workout at a airport? Any ideas?
Missed my flight to Frankfurt. 😞 The plane from Tampa was late. Now I am rerouted to Amsterdam and then to Frankfurt. But now this plane is late too - something with the emergency lights is going on. We were supposed to leave 40 min ago but we won’t start boarding until 8:30 pm. I don’t like this at all. 😁😖 I will be at least 4 hours later than planed. Now I am hoping that we will be on our way soon.

I ran the IronGirl half this morning and finished in 3:10:53. It was a tough course and I have no idea how I managed to get a PR. But I am happy about it. More about it later.
3 days until the IronGirl Half Marathon in Clearwater.
5 days until I leave to Germany.
6 days until I arrive in Europe.
6 days as well until my sisters Tupperware-Party.
10 days until the St. Wendel marathon relay.
Sounds like I have 2 very busy weeks ahead of me. And I won’t talk yet about the other 4 weeks I will be spending in Germany.
Last night at our running club meeting we had somebody talking about the Miles for Moffitt 5K. And I realized I can’t run it this year. :-( I did it last year and I planned to do it again this year. But I can’t - I will be in Germany. Maybe I can find a nice easy 5K in Europe and do it instead of Miles for Moffitt. Or maybe that’s not so smart either - I am already running a marathon relay over that just one week after IronGirl. Or maybe I am not meant to run a 5K in May. I don’t know.
Did 2 workouts today. First I did Insanity. Then I took a 30 min break before heading out the door for a 3 mile run. I am so glad I got both done. Now I am ready to relax but I still have stuff to do.

I really should go to bed. I am getting hungry and I spent the last 15 minutes thinking what I could eat. Of course all the stuff that pops into my head is unhealthy. Pretzel M&M’s top the list of these things.
What are you doing on May 19th? There is a 5K run to support the Bloomingdale Library Survior and I would love to run it. But I am out of the country and can’t do it. Now I make some advertisement for the race and hope you can do it.
If you are in the area and have time - go run it. Check out the links below.
