This past Saturday, I participated in a annual Flyers tradtion-the “Bridges and Arches run”-an 8 mile jaunt over bridges, under arches, and discovering many hills that should probably stay undiscovered 🙂 I was tapped to be one of the “shephards”-cute name for one of the run leaders 🙂 I had done that 2 years ago and was glad to do it again! This is definitely one of my favorite runs and I was a little disappointed to have missed it last year when I was in San Francisco. And if the run wasn’t exciting enough, while at brunch we had a celeb sighting!! Check it out in the picture below 🙂
So…this run was the longest run of a 28-mile week (which also included 2 yoga classes and a spin class.) I will say though…the legs did feel tired by today!! Hope that is not a taste of things to come as marathon training begins one week from tomorrow!! In prep for that, I got new shoes…figured this week is as good as any to road-test the Asics Cumulus 10s…see if they feel as good on the roads as they did during the treadmill test run-or if I will need to stockpile several pairs of the 9’s. Better to know before training starts, right?
Non-running stuff in the last few days included…
- happy hour with the coworkers at Red Sky Friday nite to welcome the summer interns-oh, and an excuse for an open bar too…
- saw Altar Boyz today-absolutely hysterical. Go see it if you already haven’t. If you like boy bands-and/or mocking boy bands-you’ll like this 🙂
- Jury duty is over with, done with, won’t be buggering me for 6 years!! Came thisclose to getting picked for a case though…guess I said the right thing to not get picked! 🙂
One more week to go before it’s time to get to work…man, it’s so so close!! Though can the weather gods please spare NYC of the constant thunderstorms? 🙂
