Rewind to last Friday.
We got to go to lunch at the Facebook campus! I was blown away by how awesome it was.
I rode a bike (the bikes are all over the place and you just pick one up and go) in heels without crashing, I am proud of myself.
Okay, let’s talk about the food because we all know that was the most important part for me. The street in the center of the campus was lined with a few food trucks and a bunch of different restaurants——> salad, pizza, burgers, thai, bbq, mexican, italian etc. It was so hard to choose but we ended up getting burrito bowls and they were delicious. They also have every drink that you can even think of (I had the horchata) and IT IS ALL FREE for employees and their guests.
I am positive if I worked there I would eat there for bfast, lunch and dinner. They also have a sweet gym on the campus too.
Free froyo everyday?! If you live in Northern California, I think you need to apply at Facebook for this perk alone.
7 treadmill miles this morning! I am amazed at how well my body is recovering from the marathon. I am guessing that the main reason for a smooth recovery is the fact that I took 9 days off from running after the race. Keeping my paces nice and relaxed and I am excited to try and get out to hit the trails as much as possible before it starts snowing and all that jazz.
We are both very excited that it is boot season. Also, Brooke insisted on wearing that hat for our entire Target trip this morning.
It feels soooo nice (and it is so much cheaper) to cook and eat at home again after being gone for so long.
If you give brooke scrambled eggs with cheese on top you will win her heart forever.
Did anyone read What Will It Take to Run A 2-Hour Marathon!?!? SOOO interesting!
The current world record for the marathon is 2:02:57 and that was just set in Berlin by Dennis Kimetto. His average pace for the marathon was 4 minutes and 41 seconds PER MILE… for 26.2 miles. Amazing.
To get under 2 hours for the marathon someone will need to run faster than 4 minutes and 35 seconds per mile!
The article goes on to talk about the factors that may contribute to the marathon time getting faster and faster so quickly and what might help someone to get that sub 2 hour marathon—> prize money increasing, pacemakers creating a human wall to block wind for the first 20 miles or so, pancake flat courses, running economy, lots of confidence;) and racing during cool months.
They predict that the man to break 2 hours in the marathon will be in his early 20s, about 5’6” and 120 lbs.
Pretty awesome stuff!
What are some perks at your job?!?
What was your lunch today?
When do you think somebody will break 2 hours in the marathon?
What was your run today? How did it feel?
