Weekend photos

From Pam: This is me sitting at Philadelphia airport waiting for my flight to Glasgow on Friday night.

We will be hiking with a group for a week and hopefully I can manage to fit in a few runs on the treadmill at our hotel.  We will also have a pool and laps will be also on my agenda.  Since Christine and I are registered for a race Sept. 2 in Virginia Beach, I need to keep up with training.  Hopefully I can avoid haggis and other unusual Scottish food!

And now from me, Christine:  I am IN LOVE with my newest running skirt.  This is the pink Minnie tech from Sparkle Skirts.  It's beyond fabulous!  I took it for a test drive on my long run this morning and was very pleased with it.   
We're getting super excited for the Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon in Virginia Beach over labor day weekend and our outfits are almost complete.  We have specially printed tanks (white, since we will basically running on the surface of the sun, aka the Virginia Beach Boardwalk) that should be coming soon from OneMoreMile (they'll be at the Expo as well - woo!!).  This will be the first race I've run with a costume or special outfit.
Final race instructions and information went out via email (also available via link) for the Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon in Virginia Beach.
We're running the relay -I'm the first leg and Mom is the 2nd leg.  Should be really fun...we even carry a drumstick as our baton!

And finally, the creme de la creme of my weekend running news - my new Garmin Forerunner 210!!!  I finally bit the bullet and bought a good pace watch and I couldn't be happier.  I just wish I hadn't waited so long to finally snag one!

Hope you guys had a great weekend!


  1. Love the skirt! I only have one, but I like how feminine I feel running in a skirt. It looks like it's a bit more full than a lot of styles - did you like the fullness?

  2. @Melinda, I was worried about that too! It's not too full that it gets stuck between your legs. And this was the ONLY skirt I've ever tried with compression shorts that didn't ride up. The shorts also have open pockets on each leg - perfect for Gu or anything else. Definitely a pricey option, but I was really pleased with the outcome.
