The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 17

The Good:
Jenny and I went to a recording of the "West Wing Weekly" podcast this weekend. We ended up seeing other folks and had a great time. Even better...meeting Josh Malina and Hrishi Hirway!

The Random:
Spotted at Whole Foods....well then!

The Fun:
I went to the Museum of Science over the weekend. They had this really cool mirror maze (think amusement park hall of mirrors) and the exhibit was about math in shapes and nature. Super fun!

B.A.A 5k 2018

I raced my 3rd BAA 5k this past weekend as my shake out for the Big Day.
I needed this run after a hard two week of Taper Crazies.
It was a perfect morning. Blue skies, crisp temps.
The Heartbreakers were out in force.
I ran with my friend Rachel.
Nice and easy.
Only a few peaks at my watch (which Rachel yelled at me for!).
30:41. Negative splits. Perfect feel.
I managed to not be too emotional down Boylston.
Smile on my face.
Ready for the Marathon!

G.R.F. Thoughts on Marathon Training

Well.
Today is the day.
The day I make my way from Hopkinton to Boston.
Today is Boston's party. My victory lap after 20 weeks of training.
Hundreds of miles.
Cold runs. Hard runs. Fun runs.
Runs that made me question my sanity.
Runs that made me feel on top of the world.
I've run through a knee injury.
Stretching. PT.
Icing. Taping.
Three years ago this was a mere dream.
I was a spectator.
Now I am a runner.
Now I am running Boston.
I've run this city.
My city.
My Boston.
Forward Together.
This is Boston.
Boston Strong.
Come this afternoon, if all goes well, I will be a marathoner.
I will be a BOSTON MARATHONER.
I am ready.
This is my celebration.
Run my race.
Toe the line in Hopkinton.
Ashland. Framingham. Natick. Wellesley. Newton. Brookline.
Right on Hereford, left on Boylston.
Finish strong.
