In 2007 and 2008 I ran the Boston Marathon. I’m not sure what was more exciting, the journey getting there, or the race itself. Regardless, being a part of the race, whether you’re a runner, volunteer or spectator is incredible. I wish everyone who is taking part, a fantastic day!!
On Friday, I think Abby briefly considered becoming a runner herself. This is a rare sighting folks, don’t blink.
Saturday morning I did an easy 6 miles on the treadmill and then met up with two girlfriends for brunch at a fairly new place – The Local Public Eatery. I gotta say, this place is COOL. I can’t wait to go back once the patios are open and enjoy more food and drinks in the sunshine!! I ordered their Huevos Rancheros…with a side of bacon. Obviously. OMG. Soooooo good.
Saturday night was dinner at my cousin’s…her husband cooked us an AMAZING meal.
Saturday I had a 15 mile run to get done. But let me rewind quickly to Friday night when I bought myself a new pair of shoes. Skechers’ Go Run 3. I wore them for my 6 miles on Saturday and while I could tell they changed my gait/form, I have always been one to switch shoes without a problem (no aches, pains or blisters) so I wore them on Sunday.
Yeah. Um. That was a VERY bad mistake. The difference between my normal shoes and these Skechers is like the difference between flip flops and stilettos. I realized it at about mile 6…so then somehow made it back home which meant I had 12 miles done…then I switched shoes and finished up the 15 miles on my treadmill…but it wasn’t pretty. Like, really not pretty.
It was a beautiful day…however, in addition to a stupid decision with the shoes, I stupidly did not wear sunscreen…I was wearing a long sleeve shirt (and it as 46F) so I didn’t even think about it!!
The canal is still drained but it’s only a matter of time until the locks are filled and running boats up and down them.
Abby had a bath this weekend.
