Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? There is a little bit of chill in the air this morning so I am warming up here in my office with some yummy Pumpkin Spice VIA from the ‘bucks.
This weekend was my first 20 miler of the marathon training season! I could not have asked for better weather for a long run. I coached my running group and ran with some people that ran 20 miles for the very first time!
We all finished with smiles on our faces. Marine Corps Marathon here we come!
With the temps in the 60′s I felt my feet moving just a little bit faster. You don’t even know how excited I am for these cooler temps to come around. It’s definitely my favorite time of year to run a race! Temps 60 and below…yes, bring it on!
After the run (and a nice little nap) I went to the new Trader Joe’s in my mom’s neighborhood. They just opened last week so it was a madhouse in there!
I stocked up on all my faves…finally got a jar of cookie butter! That stuff is pretty dangerous.
Saturday night I took it reeal easy. I wasn’t sore at ALL from my run but I was pretty tired. So I took advantage and got some good rest this weekend.
Sunday morning I woke up and the temps were in the 60′s again! I knew I had a to get up and get a nice little recovery jaunt in. I love running by the lake in my ‘hood. So serene and peaceful.
After church I came home and chilled and made some pizza with my whole wheat crust from TJ’s! Topped it off with chicken sausage, spinach, feta and mozzarella. Heaven!
I caught up with my Real Housewives of New Jerz – that’s my equivalent to watching NFL football ya’ll.
How was your weekend? What is the weather like in your neck of the woods?
