Weekend Roundup: First Ever Pub Run & Two-A-Days!

I don’t know about you, but I had an excellent weekend.

On Friday night, I attended the first ever Pub Run at Marathon Sports Mashpee.  Mizuno sponsored the event and it was a blast.  They brought along shoes and there were perks for trying them on and running the 3-mile course in them.  I ran with Tiff from work – and we were flying in the Mizuno shoes!  They are a great brand and great company but they run a little too narrow for my big feet.  Boo.

After the run, the group met up at The Lanes.  Everyone that wore the Mizuno shoes got a drink voucher, a Mizuno pint glass, and a cool blue Mizuno t-shirt. 

That’s not all – The Lanes brought out food!  Chips, soft pretzels (my fav!), nachos, and pizza.  Awesome.  My dad also ran and we stuck around for a while and met some other local runners.  It was a late night for us – got home at 10pm! – but we would totally do it again!

Thank you Marathon Sports & Mizuno!

Friday also marked my first ever two-a-day.  I knew I would be running at the Pub Run so I was going to move my usual Friday morning long run to Thursday or Saturday morning.  Stupid tree pollen and work stress has had an effect on my sleep this week so I skipped my run Thursday morning.  When I woke up Friday morning, I was feeling great and the morning was so beautiful I couldn’t help but head out the door for a lovely 8 miles down by the beach.

Saturday morning I received a surprise text from Lizzie that she is in town so she joined me and my mama for a nice 4-mile walk around West Falmouth and Chappy Beach.  I love when she’s home.  We also made a trip to Somerset Creamery – in my opinion, the best ice cream and waffle cones on Cape Cod!

Other highlights:

While we were sleeping Friday night, Galen Rupp broke the American Record in the 10,000 meters.  So amazing.  If you didn’t have a chance to watch the race, you can check it out here. 

Registration is now up for the Tufts 10k for Women.  I have it marked on my calendar as my goal race of the year.  Join me on Columbus Day for an empowering day for women and a 6.2 mile run through the streets of Boston.

Weekend Mileage – Friday AM 8miles, Friday PM 3miles, Saturday AM 4mile walk.  Sunday PM 4 miles with mama joining me on the bike.
