Oh, hello friends. How is everyone? How about a (ridiculously) quick update?
Training for the Boston Marathon is going well. My highest mileage is 18 miles (!!) which was long, tiring, and difficult, but I ran it. Running for Girls on the Run is extremely rewarding and totally worth all these miles.
Incase you didn’t hear, it snowed in Boston.
And then it snowed some more.
I bought my official Boston Marathon jacket. I have been impatiently waiting for the official gear to go on sale. I’m going to buy 100 more items of clothing with the BAA logo on it. Due to extreme superstition, I am not allowed to wear any of it until after I complete the race. I think that’s a fair deal. Or torturous. Whatever.
I set a PR (oh yeah!) at the Rás na hÉireann 5k AKA the Somerville Saint Patrick’s Day 5k. This also happened to be my very first 5k two years ago! The Somerville 5ks are always so much fun and this race was no different. I’ll do a race recap shortly.
I mean… look at those. They have nothing to do with marathon training but everything to do with being delicious.
