1. I only ran once this work week and I’m slightly okay with that.
Monday was Boston Marathon day. So amazing and inspiring to watch all these athletes come together. #gomeb
That evening I participated in the Boston Marathon World Run after hearing about it from the amazing runner Sarah! It was basically a way to honor the Boston Marathon and those affected by last years horrific events. Runners all over the world pledged to run/walk x distance, you could print out bibs and certificates, and you could donate money.
So after work I headed over to Kyle’s house, ran a little under 3 miles (so hilly over there), and made it back just in time to eat dinner with Kyle once he got home. After dinner, Kyle, his mom, and I walked through their neighborhood and to our old high school to participate in the World Run.
So glad we were walking cause my hip has been buggin’ me ever since my half. I’ve been rolling like it was my job and it is helping. I’ve been focusing on cross training and I figure I’ll rest up for my long runs this weekend. Am I annoyed that I missed 2 easy runs (no speed work this week)? Yes. Do I know that it is better to give up 2 easy runs than get an injury? Yes *said stubbornly. It’s okay, I think I needed a mental break from running anyways.
2. Kyle and I visited our old high school and my it has changed!
Like I said, on Monday during our World Run, we walked to our old high school. When we were seniors, they were adding some new buildings to our already huge campus. When my little sister was there, they added even more. After we were both gone, they added an enormous and fancy Student Center. The place looks like a small college campus now.
Kyle and I showed each other where we used to eat lunch as seniors. We were only like 100 feet apart. Good thing we ended up in that same econ class cause who knows if we ever would have met 😉
3. I’m obsessed with my pets, but you already knew that.
This was taken the night I returned from my half marathon. My dog must have missed me cause she wouldn’t leave my side. Keep in mind I was gone 1 night.
Left- prepping my breakfast. Right- I opened the door to get my PJs and she pushed me aside and plopped down.
Saturday happened to be her 9th birthday.
I kind of hate pet birthdays cause they age way too quickly. But I gave her a bone filled with peanut butter so she wouldn’t know that I hate her special day. You can watch her here.
4. I’m a little nutty and easily amused.
I went to Kyle’s house last weekend and we were playin’ pool.
You know, just scootering around his house on his mom’s old knee scooter (from when she had foot surgery). And a basket for my secrets. You should see the video…
I swear it was super fun.
5. I baked a carrot cake for Easter and ate way too much of it.
Nothing fancy or amazing to see here. I didn’t have time to make anything cool, but I baked a carrot cake (no walnuts cause my aunt is allergic).
Do your pets get super needy after you leave?
Anyone participate in the Boston Marathon World Run?
Visit your old high school? Has it changed?
Carrot cake- yes or no?
