This is going to be a TTP… to the point… post. I had friends in town for the race, Gentry out of town for the race and a whole lot of grocery shopping and meal planning that didn’t get done. But, I’d do this weekend in a heartbeat all over again… well maybe keep Gentry around one time 😉
Saturday’s race was FRIGID! Luckily, I have a stockpile of old sweatshirts and pants, which I literally wore up until the amen minute. Sometimes being a hoarder pays off. Despite the North Pole-esque temps, I felt great the entire race. Justin rode his bike next to me for much of the last half. Of course if he’s not participating in a race he has to ride his bike to the race, ride the race and ride home. Even if the start is 25 miles away by car.
That about sums up the race… 21 seconds slower than last year. Either I ran too slow last year or I was just excited to get to the finish line and put on some warm clothes.
My friend deserves the spotlight this year though-
after running Marine Corps Marathon just 2 short weeks ago at a 3:45, she turned around and ran this one at 3:32… good enough for her first (of many) Boston Qualifiers.
I’m not going to lie, seeing her cross the finish line made me about 1% wish I did the full. Will I admit to looking up fulls in early 2015… maybe? Maybe not?
If you read my post last week, I said I was dedicating each Monday post to Kids Cook Monday. A great way for you to not only teach your kids about nutrition, but to get them cooking dinner for you 😉
Last Monday, Gentry and I made these veggie pancakes.
This Monday, we are attempting to make these Honey Cheerio Bars
But, instead of Cheerios, I’d use Kashi Heart to Heart cereal for a bit more nutrition.
How was your weekend?
What’s been cooking in your kitchen?
Full or stick with half marathons???
