WRD Weekend Reunion

This weekend will be a fun one as Mom is joining me in VA for some running and Disney fun.  Saturday morning we'll be running the Operation Homefront 5k as part of my corporate team.  Hopefully we'll do them proud.  I have big plans for a PR since I haven't run a timed 5k in over a year and before I started serious training.  Regardless, it's a great cause and I'm looking forward to rocking some of my patriotic running gear.

We have big plans to work on our costumes for Dumbo Double Dare.  I anticipate a few trips to Michael's for some supplies and some quality time around the sewing machine.  Fingers crossed that they turn out as well in real life as I'm envisioning them!  And two races means double the costumes...and potential crafting disasters!

And of course, we'll log some miles on Sunday for a long run, eat some yummy food and enjoy some quality mother-daughter time.  We haven't spent a weekend together (other than one that was a family event) since easter!

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?
