Tuesdays on the Run: Birthday Week Runs

Last week was my birthday week! My birthday was on Tuesday, and though we celebrated the weekend before, I also got to celebrate a little on the day-of with a birthday run (and semi-nice weather!) and birthday dinner. Here’s how last week looked:

The week’s running highlights:

I got in TWO runs outside! Monday morning it was drizzly but semi-warm and for the first time the snow and ice we had gotten the past few weeks had melted and I felt safe running outside. And because it was warm (40s-50s), running in the rain felt pretty amazing.

And Tuesday – my birthday – I got in another run outside! It made the best birthday gift to be outside, wearing capris, and running 4+ miles.

The rest of the week I stayed inside, but stuck to the treadmill in the mornings and still got in a few miles. Which is important – I’m trying to build a good base this winter so when it gets warm again, I’ll be back outside and running more again!

Speaking of being outside – here’s a friendly reminder, if you’re planning on running the Cleveland Marathon or any of the events this may (half marathon, 5k, 8k 10, 1 mile (new!) or kids run, use the code MCCLE10 for 10% off your entry fee. I’m an ambassador for the race, so I get to have fun discounts AND I’ll have a giveaway coming up!

Some questions for you:

  • Are you running any races this spring?
  • Do you like running on your birthday?

  1. Wasn’t it great to unbundle this week? So nice that you got a run outside on your birthday! Unfortunately, we are heading back to the deep freeze here…

  2. A birthday run is a special treat. Weren’t those warm days nice? Sadly they’re long gone but at least we’re gaining daylight. My first races of the year will be Gasparilla in Tampa in February.

  3. It’s great to have a race on your birthday. A few years back, a Leprechaun 10K was on my birthday (my bday is 3/14) and that was a lot of fun. All of my friends (dressed in festive green running gear) serenaded me at the finish line 😉
