It’s Road Race Week! While it may not have been as exciting as years past but I had a great week.
On Friday night, I went to the expo to pick up my number. I didn’t have too much time to spend there but I gave Matt a quick thank you, said hi to Cape Cod Runner & Infa and I was off to the heights for the New Balance Girls Night Out.
The “Relax Before Race Day” event was really cool. Totally out of my comfort zone, the night started with Yoga on the beach with New Balance Ambassador Aly Raymer. I was next to another run clubber with zero yoga experience and we laughed at our struggles the whole 45 minute class. Aly was a great instructor and made the class fun. I could totally tell she was a spin instructor. I’d love to take one of her classes! The event continued at the Casino Wharf where there was chocolate fondue, GUMMY WORMS, lots of appetizers, wine and giveaways!

Saturday’s highlight included a visit from Hawi Keflezighi. He’s such a cool guy and it’s always nice catching up. Looking forward to seeing him again in Houston!
Race day was BRUTAL! You can read my full race day recap here: http://www.jenrunsfastblog.com/2015/08/race-report-falmouth-road-race-2015.html
Georgie Run Updates: I brought Georgie for a mile run on Saturday. First thing in the morning, I let her out to pee and poop. As soon as she was done, I put on her harness and backpack and we were out the door. THREE minutes into our run, she stopped to poop again. TWO minutes after that a pee break. About a minute later (1/2 mile in) she stopped in the middle of the road and refused to continue on. Unbelievable. What a terrible training partner! :)
