Hope everyone is having a great day! Weather is awesome here & we’re grilling steaks. I even have on shorts! Real shorts, not just running shorts.
I may not have achieved my BQ (yet!), but my husband and son got me these for Mother’s Day. I think I’ll use them when I run the Runner’s World Hat Trick in a month.
I found another picture of me from the Cox Providence Marathon. This was around mile 20-21. I surprisingly don’t look as miserable as I felt just then, although my stomach was turning around for the better at this point.
My training is moving from recovery time back to some speed work. I still feel nervous about the decrease in mileage, but I’m going to defer to Coach Emily’s expertise and behave myself.
Also, I’m looking into boxing lessons. It turns out a longtime acquaintance teaches boxing (we know him from his day job) right around the corner from my house. My son may even join me for a few. Thank god because our basement sofa has his ass print permanently installed of late. At least he showers regularly. I celebrate the small victories.
