There really isn’t a heck of a lot to catch you up on with my week post-Boston. After the marathon, I was pretty much a lump on a log for the majority of every day….and it was my April vacation. Catching a mean head cold was NOT part of my spring break plans…but oh well. At least it didn’t come DURING training! Although having a major head cold arrive on the day of the marathon I had been training for isn’t exactly perfection, either.
Anyway. My sweet husband took last week off with me too. I don’t think he was ready for spending most of his break doing things solo, poor guy. He did a lot of gardening while I managed to go through about 5 boxes of tissues.
This past Saturday was the first day that I woke up and felt like the cold was FINALLY leaving my body. I could see straight and hear too!! It’s amazing what a little NyQuil and a good nights sleep will do for you… I finally got outside to help with some planting& went for a great run.
Sunday was family Sunday fun day!!!! I was beyond excited to have everyone at my house for a late lunch. I hadn’t had a chance to see SIL since MONDAY —-we had previously envisioned a glorious photo shoot with our matching medals, jackets, & finishers smilers. That vision was thwarted by the freezing rain& a few other random details.
So SIL & I got a great mini photo shoot in my backyard. We are silly!
So ridiculously blessed to have this girl as my sister!!!
I think I might be the only person who saw pictures on IG from this past weekend and was super jealous that I wasn’t racing. Particularly that I wasn’t there at Big Sur.
It really made me want to enter the lottery for the Boston To Big Sur Challenge! The lottery doesn’t open until October, so…I’ve got some time to think about it!! Seeing the pictures of all the springtime races just makes me THAT much more excited that the nice weather is (basically) here!! Hooray, sunshine, summer runs, & swearing for no reason ( all things I have dearly missed)!
I hope you had a great weekend! Fill me in on some randomness! Or tell me about your favorite run so I can live vicariously through YOU!!!!
