Cherry Love

Since I am currently running the 2011 Cherry Blossom 10 Mile run today I thought I would do a little post ahead of time sharing a few Cherry Blossom related posts from the past!

The last time I went to see the Cherry Blossom festival was in 2009 with Charles (then referred to as boyf!)

The Cherry Blossoms were in full bloom that year and just looking as gorgeous as ever. After we had played in the blossoms for a bit, we had some fun pushing over the Washington Monument.

I am so hardcore it hurts.

Aside from spending time playing in the blossoms, last year I ran the 1st Annual Cherry Blossom 5k in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia and got 2nd place!

It’s a (secret) goal of mine to one day win first place in a little race!

Another Leslie Fun Fact: 10 Mile races are my favorite distance to run. Sadly the last 10 mile race I ran was actually my first ‘official’ race – and it was 2 years ago at the Broad Street Run

I think that race is when I really started to fall in love with running – right after the race, while fully embracing my runner’s high, I immediately signed up for the Zooma Annapolis Half Marathon and the NYC Half Marathon – and let’s just say the rest is history!

Good luck to everyone out there racing today! I’ll be back later with a recap from the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile run in DC!
