|It's a good day around here when you get to spend it chasing the kids around the library, but it is GREAT when you find MAIL from another blogger at your post office box!|
|Ana Maria @ Running, Tri-ing and Living sent me a package for beating her prediction time for me. She had guessed I would finish in 3:30 at Boston, and I did just a bit better than that. Thanks AM!! You are AWESOME!!|
In the package: recovery socks, 2 Gu gels, two packs of Recovery e21- (an electrolyte capsule), and a kind note. She is a very talented runner (sub 1:30 half marathon talented!) and an aspiring triathlete. Check out her blog!
Giving some serious thought to a 10K on the 4th of July.
The Butte to Butte has a fun history as a larger race for our area, and there will be many fast runners there. I have no idea where I could be speed-wise at that date (I haven't been doing any speed work), so for now it would be there as a "motivational" race. Something to get me charged up again for racing.
I could run my tail off, get sprayed by neighborhood hoses on a hot day, enjoy a slice of watermelon at the finish, and have absolutely ZERO pressure to get an award :). That's not usually how I roll....but it's sounding kind of good right now!
