I ran 34 miles last week y’all. Of course that was spread out over 7 days but on average I’m running around 5 miles a day and let’s be honest, I’m loving it, especially when the weather is great as it was this weekend.
I’m pretty sure I look like this when the temps dip into the sixties,
Unfortunately that weather didn’t last because this morning the temperature and dew points were back in the 70’s. I managed to run 5 miles anyway, well sort of, I walked a little portion of it and it wasn’t pretty but I got it done.
It’s not me, it’s my sweat. Can we please have the Fall weather back again?
Last Friday MacGyver and I went to a ton of community garage sales. We didn’t buy a lot of things but we got a few good items. And then when MacGyver went hunting on Saturday, I went to a thousand more. Obviously I’m out of control but I got some good stuff.
On Sunday morning I watched the New York City Marathon. I love Shalane Flanagan. She’s just such a great competitor and so inspirational. I loved how she fought so hard at the end and passed two other runners to go from fifth to third and win a spot on the podium. It was epic.
It still gives me goosebumps.
Forbes had a great little article online which gave all kinds of interesting stats about the NYC Marathon.
I also saw this story online which I thought was definitely worth sharing. It’s the true story of a woman who’s doctor actually told her she was too fat to run. Seriously.
How was your weekend?
