May Races + Randoms

Random #1: I've been eating cinnamon swirl bagels the last couple of weeks (I'm not a breakfast eater...unless it's for dinner...so I've been forcing myself to eat at least half of a bagel)...but, all of a sudden, they taste disgusting to me. So I switched to blueberry :)
 
Random #2: I take a picture every year on our anniversary with the goal of putting all of them in a photo album. Here is this year's photo (warning: we look beautiful):
 
Ok. May racing...
 
I have two 5k's scheduled for the month of May. On the 18th, I'm doing Race for the Cure. My friend, Selina, asked me to be on her team last year and I had a blast. It was such an emotional experience. I knew I wanted to do it again this year. I can't wait!!!
On the 25th, I'll be in WV visiting my family for Memorial weekend. I'm going to run the Losing to Live 5k at my family's church. Here is a picture from last year's race:
I'm a dork.
 
There is actually a story behind this race. My parents knew I had gotten back into racing and, when I arrived to WV, they told me their church was hosting a 5k that weekend and asked if I'd like to run it. I thought, "Why not?!" I had no expectations or ideas about how it would go. I just figured it was a regular ole 5k. I can't remember my time but it was decent considering the hills (we don't have WV hills here in Ohio). We had to jet out after I ran but, the next day, the race coordinator handed me an award at church. Apparently, I was the female winner! ha. I think I even got 5th overall! Cray cray! I was stunned because, since high school, I've never won a race in my life!
 
Random #3: As of last week, I started a new bed time tradition. Caffeine free tea. This is what I bought this weekend:
 
Random #4: Out of nowhere, last night, our bedroom light came on. Weird. Two possibilities: A ghost. OR we have a remote for the light...I might have accidentally turned it on in my sleep. I'm going with ghost because I was turned away from the remote when it happened.
