Four Things Friday/The End of Vacation at OBX :(

1. This may have been my highest mileage week ever.  I have run slightly over 60 , yes 60 miles this week in the Outer Banks!  Technically I keep track of my miles from Mon. to Sun. but the 7 days that I have run here it has been more than 60 miles.  Why?  I have run all seven days which I don't usually do.  I have done more runs of 7 or more than usual.  I ran twice or two days although one day that only added on two miles.  I love running in an ocean setting and it has been spectactular so I keep running and running and running.  The women I am with think I am nuts I believe. But I have loved the running here.  There is a race tomorrow but I need to get home and head to Boston!!!!

2. This morning I was up in time to see the sun rise and it was spectacular!  Enough said, see the picture.

3.  I'm beginning to switch gears and get ready to spectate at Boston.  I have made posters and gathered some "spectating wear".  It should be beyond exciting!

4. I hate to leave the Outer Banks but it is always good to go home!
One more time playing with the self timer!

Now this is quite a lot of running. I am sure your friends were totally impressed. You are one fit lady.
Have fun watching Boston. This is quite an event. When we lived in Hopkinton we would go and cheer the runners. I did not run then, I thought I hated running. Little did I know.

OK, I'm catching up on blogs...first, I'm so jealous of your running 60 miles, and where you ran it. It looks beautiful. Second, your daughter's running Boston and you'll be there as a spectator?? That's cool! My wife and I will be there "spectating" also. I'd love to meet you and your daughter, so e-mail me at cotaman@yahoo.com if that would be possible. Oh, and good luck to your daughter. :-)

I'm quite certain I've never approached a 60-mile week. Congrats!
I had the pleasure of brunching with Emily in Boston--what a beautiful, charming daughter you have! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
