Weekly Roundup 12.25-12.31


Week 1 of 16

“I’m on the right track baby, I was born to be brave.”

I’m back to training mode!  100%.  This week kicked off the official Week 1 of Boston Marathon training and I’m using Gaga lyrics as my mantra.

Merry Christmas!  Christmas fell on a Monday this year and I was able to get out for 6 merry miles to the beach and back after a little push from my mom.


On Tuesday—I couldn’t believe it—I went to run club.  The whole week forecasted freezing cold temperatures but Danielle and Jason were back and just about all my friends showed up so I was happy to be there.


Since I ran longer than usual on Monday, I didn’t run on Wednesday and went right to my lift.  I wimped out on Friday and opted indoors on the treadmill then stuck around for my second strength training session of the week.


I procrastinated all Saturday morning but sucked it up and drove to Falmouth in the afternoon for my long run.  10 miles, feels like 10 degrees.  It was… cold.  I probably ran faster then I should have but I couldn’t hold back in the cold.



1 week down, 15 weeks to go!

Other highlights:

·      A friend mailed me a surprise package to celebrate the start of Boston training!


·      On Friday night Georgie and I took a drive to the beach to chase another sunset.  It was definitely worth it.


·      Penn State = Fiesta Bowl Champs! Kristen was home so we were able to watch together!



·      The Buffalo Bills are going to the PLAYOFFS for the first time since 1999!!! #BillsMafia

Upcoming events:

·      15 weeks until the Boston Marathon!
