First, it is pretty comical to watch me attempt to go up or down the stairs right now. I am sore.com after the marathon. I do kind of like being sore because it reminds me of what I did that made me so sore—> ummm…. 26.2 miles. I like remembering that.
I had an awesome opportunity yesterday to be interviewed on Fox 13 and talk about my Boston Marathon experience and Team Stonyfield! I was sweating bullets before I got to the station but everyone was so ridiculously nice and encouraging that they made me feel right at home once I got there.
Fun story about the below picture—> as soon as I got to the studio I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for a selfie. I took a bunch and then somebody came and opened the door to let me in. Turns out this is one of those doors that everyone can see perfectly out of from the inside when I just thought it was a dark window with a reflection and that they couldn’t see me. I was caught selfieing (not even remotely a word) it up. Yeah, I felt pretty awkward.
Before my segment I got to chat with Max and hang out with the producer and learn all about how the show is put together! Now I kind of want to be a Newscaster someday.
Here is the clip!
My family all got together to watch and my brothers and their families watched it online too. My mom said that Brooke giggled throughout the entire thing because she couldn’t believe that I was on TV.
Once I got back my parents wanted to go out to celebrate the marathon by eating at one of my favorites.
Brooke calls this place the Breadstick Restaurant. I think they should probably reconsider their current name and go with what Brooke thinks it should be called. Who wouldn’t want to go to a place called the Breadstick Restaurant?
Salad and carbs, two of my staples.
After dinner we decided that a park date was pretty necessary, the two of us had a lot to catch up on. PS I told you I was never going to take off my Boston jacket.
We spent a good hour or so burying the dinosaur. I can’t think of any better way to spend my Tuesday night.
I’m sure you probably guessed it already but I most definitely had my favorite post-race treat of an apple fritter and a diet coke. I work well with a reward system.
Fell free to check out my favorite glute exercises that are fast and effective HERE!!!
Okay, one last thing. This is what someone’s hair looks like when they get home after running a marathon in the pouring rain followed directly by taking a 5 hour flight. It took quite a while to brush it all out.
What is your favorite post-race treat?
What are some of your favorite glute exercises?
Got anything exciting going on today? Anything exciting happening the rest of the week?
Who else has sore legs right now?
-I think it is going to take a few days for my quads to feel normal again!
