I had an amazing last few days. Sometimes if i’m not blogging it’s cause i’m “living” which then makes for a few good blogs. I’m not organized enough yet to blog on the daily, but I have been trying to update my Instagram more often, baby steps people. Also, I have to say i’m glad you guys liked my Runner Overload picture, but I’m warning you..you may have fueled a fire and i might do sketches to get my point across more often.
Now that’s all said, a very cool thing happened Friday. I got to hang out with Run for The Pizza! Emmeline and I basically talked for 5 or so hours straight (not exaggerating) and forgot to take pictures until after our dinner and drinks. Some bloggers we are right? But I promise the ahi tuna, hummus, french fries & beer would have been a great picture. Just pretend (or i’ll have to draw you up something hehe)
Onto the running side of my life. I had a reassuring long run this week–a 14 miler and last long run before the marathon in 14 days. It went soooo well. I fueled right, my pace started conservative 8:20s and I picked up throughout the run ending with a few in the 7:40s and a whole lot of energy. I’m still going back and forth about how this marathon will go, but for now I will eat up a big bowl of inspiration while watching the Boston Marathon! One last Good Luck shout out to my running coach Lauren & everyone else running Boston this morning!
