Pre-Bunny Hop 5K

This 5K might get the award for the most ridiculous name.

I get that it's Easter, but do you have to call it the Bunny Hop 5K?


This is the first 5K that I've run in since the beginning of last December when I ran the ACC 5K with Hannah & Josh. It's also the first 5K that I'll be running with my friend Amy.

We go way back... to high school. She's one of the few people that I've kept in touch with since graduation and I'm excited to see her again! Plus, if you knew either one of us a decade ago, you knew we were not runners. I'm still claiming to not be one. Kidding. Maybe.

She let me know that she was coming home for Easter this year and I replied with a "Run a 5K with me Easter weekend!!!!!!" and two minutes later, she was registered to run the race with me.

I'm hoping that the weather holds out and we get one of those perfect running mornings: cool, cloudy, and not rainy.

This starts a quick little 5K spree for me with one this weekend, one on 4/18, and one on 5/9. By then it'll be time to put up the running shoes until temperatures and humidity levels drop back down in the fall. Unless I get talked into running another race on the 4th of July... which will probably happen.

But for real, no more of this running in hot, humid weather. It isn't for me!

Here's the playlist for this weekend:

I've finally stopped running to just 1989 {but I couldn't take it out of the playlist completely!}

This is the kind of run I'm hoping for on Saturday:

Guess we'll see what happens!
