Ok, last part, I promise!! Tuesday after the marathon, we went to Cape Cod. We walked on the beach, ate some good food, and had full-fat ice cream!! Livin’ on the edge, I know. 🙂 It was sooo good!!
Here are some pics.
Here are my marathon foto pictures from Boston. You know, I have to say these are my best marathon pics yet. Not saying much because I look like I am a dead zombie (can they be alive?hmm…) . But usually, these pictures are much, much, worse.
So, I ran my second post-marathon run this morning. Tank is so happy to be running again! (So am I!!) I am feeling really great and ready to tackle my next challenge. Until July, I will be focusing on shorter distances- 5k and 10k. I am not very good at these and the last 5k I ran was in August, so should be interesting! I am pretty excited to kick my bootie into gear and see what I am made of at the shorter distance. Here is my schedule for the summer:
May 8th- Arizona RoadRacers Rio Vista Luck Of The Draw 8k- Not racing it all out, running it with friends to celebrate Carol’s birthday. 🙂 Yay!
May 29th- Arizona RoadRacers Summer Series #1 5k
June 12- Arizona RoadRacers Summer Series #2 5k
July 4- Scripps Ranch 10k San Diego How fun does that look?
July 17- Arizona RoadRacers Summer Series #4 5k
August 8- Arizona RoadRacers Summer Series #5 5k
September 6th- DisneyLand Half Marathon – Tune-up race for CHICAGO!!!!!
So, here I am back to healthy eating, healthy running, and enjoying the prospect of meeting new goals and growing stronger as a runner this summer. It was 92 degrees today, so the heat is definitely on its way.
Shout out to my dear friend Don who surprised me with a box of maple syrup candy at track yesterday. We were talking last weekend about how much I ADORE maple syrup (probably the only real reason I like pancakes) and he was telling me about this all-natural maple candy made in Vermont. I was dying to try some and there he was on Tuesday with a box! So sweet! Thanks Don!! It is my new favorite!!! Must. Order. More.
