1. Three good mid week runs. The first one was slow but beautiful - a gorgeous day running by the raging river. The next day was at the gym on the TM and I had a great run. Then today I decided to go out again even though it was cloudy and a two layer day. I had another great run at a very decent pace. Not too bad post half marathon!
2. Sunday I race again but this time a 5K in Boston! I was thinking about my goals when I realized that even if I have raced 5 times this year, none of have been a 5K. I did a 3 miler (New York), a half (New Hampshire), a 4 miler (New York), an 8K (DC) and a half (VT). Now I head to Mass. to race in a 5K. I have a feeling this race will be very crowded. Does the chip start when we cross the start? I would like to beat my fastest pace this year (9:12 from the 4 miler) but don't know if that will happen. I as always want to have my heal stay happy. I so love racing and I am thrilled to be racing a fair amount this year. I want to be able to continue as races absolutely rock my world.
3. I hope to meet some bloggy friends in Boston! I realize that it is a super busy weekend and will just be grateful to meet whomever I am able to. My main focus will be on my favorite blogger and racer! Good thing we are on school vacation next week as I might return voiceless. Last year I had to go to school with a cow bell blister from so much ringing!
GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE BOSTON RUNNERS! I'LL BE CHEERING FOR YOU!
