THANK YOU to all of you for your comments and sweet words for my
long three part “Why I Run The Boston Marathon” series…a couple of people had mentioned how important running was to them immediately following the tragedy. I remember feeling the same exact way. My mom usually buys me a massage post-Boston (she is a love!) and when she offered that year, I told her that I felt guilty getting one. There were so many people that were hurt from the bombings, it just didn’t feel right to get a message because i, at least, had my sore muscles. I took a look back at that week to see how many miles I ran-it was 75. I guess running was all that helped me too. (((Big hugs to ya’ll)))
It’s been a weird week.it’s been so ridiculously cold that I’ve been needing to be inside for running. I’m being a bit of a baby by not going outside right now! I feel like we have gone from beautiful fall weather to Christmas weather within a week. The weather is on as much Christmas steroids as my tv commercials are (every commercial is a cold-weather snowy picture-perfect Christmas commercial..TOO.SOON.)
(((SIGH))) The DREADMILL.
I hate running on the treadmill. I feel lucky I have one, but I don’t like being forced to run on it. Another weird thing about this week is that I have had absolutely zero motivation to run. I know all runners go through this at some point- this is my week I guess…I had two-4 mile days where it was an absolute struggle to get through that. I don’t know. Maybe I’m coming down with something because I’m all out of sorts! I keep telling myself that it’s “ok” to be lazy right now because as of next week, I’m going to officially consider myself to be back in marathon training…aka-hitting it and hitting it hard.
Happy weekend everybody! Head on over to two of my bloggy friends and wish them good luck in their Sunday race-they both are racing the Philadelphia Marathon and are going to do GREAT!! I feel like these girls could be my real life
Friends, I just adore them!
MicheleMichele and Lisa, I hope you KICK ASS this weekend!!!!
Stay warm everybody!
