I have nothing but goodies from the marathon weekend to share with you today! I’m resting up, recovering like a champ, and staying up until midnight with Andrew.
*Jenny B! Meeting internet friends at races is the best. I for sure want to do a meetup in Boston next year!
*Keira posted on my IG, and I could not believe it.
*Andrew and I do life very differently in some ways. He had a class final that had to be finished by 9/30… so when did he decide to take his final? 9/30 @ 11 pm ha (the test takes an hour). He crushed the test then woke up at 4 to do the marathon thing. He is beyond amazing.
*Our friend, Adam, had such bad hamstring issues he was about to drop out until Andrew had a bag of ice for him to stick on his hamstring at mile 18, and he went on to hit a 7-minute or (2:42)!
*After the race, I went from feeling like I was on the sun’s surface to shivering like I was in Antarctica. Not a feeling I want to experience again.
*Just Beck’s model pose as he waited to see me at the 10k.
*My decision to skip doing CIM was confirmed. My body needs some major recovery, and I’m going to give it that after a fun year of racing.
*Those post-race treats:
*My brother and his family brought this over the day before the marathon. They are the best.
*My friend said I passed him at 26.1, and he feared my determined face. I look so angry when I’m racing, ha!
*This sign from Brooke❤️
*These two got in some racing!
*We spent the rest of the weekend playing. I felt like a train hit me when I woke up on Sunday, but once we got moving, I felt much better.
Procrastinator or get it done asap?
Have any tangents today?
How long do you usually take off after a race?
