Orient Express and Football

Happy Saturday bloggy world!  I got up this morning and ran a 4 mile race.  I was concerned how the knee would hold up, but it was great. There was a little discomfort, but nothing like it was.  The rest really helped.  My knee just needed some TLC and rest from squats and lunges. 
I had a blast and I can't wait to run another race.  There is a color run next month I plan on registering for.... Have you heard of the color run concept? Here's a link. Basically though,  runners rock out to live bands while being showered in neon colors. Fun right??
Here's a pic from today's race. My 8 year old took it on my phone.  She did pretty good...
I finished 4th in my age group and 37th overall with a time of 34:44.  I had hoped for a sub 34 finish, but with the knee, a side cramp and the hills on the course, I'm very happy with my time.
I'll be checking in sometime in the next few days with an update concerning my mental state (beyond the obvious cuckoo bird nuttiness I embrace). 
Hubby and I are hitting Superbowl Party tomorrow. We'll have to see how the snacks and such go, but I'm not planning on drinking so the rest should be pretty easy.  And just to be clear.....
