BOSTON PART II- Weekend Activities!

If you missed my first post re Boston, make sure to check it out here!  I've been in Boston twice prior for marathon weekend and the energy is just electric!  It was probably 100x more electric being there as a runner.  You are seriously treated like a celebrity and the people of Boston really are SO grateful that you're there running in this historic race.  I made me appreciate it even more than I had (if that's even possible!)  On our way to the Red Sox game Saturday the guy driving the T we were on came over the loud speaker and thanked everyone on who was running Monday and how much it meant to the city. Tears. I just love Boston.
One of these signs is on it's way to me & I'm so excited for it!

Week of BOSTON!

I haven't done a blog post in....... a very long time.  With Boston behind me ( 😭 ) I figured I'd write a few posts about my prep & experience in Boston!  This post will be my week leading up to Boston and race morning.... what I ate, drank, my workouts, etc.  I'm hoping to break this all up into 2-3 posts, and will most likely be a jumble of randomness which is my brain right now! This is what works for me & it may not work for everyone!

Boston Marathon Training- Week 1 !!

Hellllllllo :) Well, it has been some time since my last update.  I just finished my first week of Boston Marathon training!!! SQEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! I can not believe it has started/that I'm running the Boston MARATHON!!!!!! I have some big goals for Boston! That is my main focus this training period!!  I'd like a shiny new 5k and half marathon PR, but my goal in Boston is sub 3:20.

New Jersey Marathon Recap

 Hey friends!! It's been one week and one morning since I ran the New Jersey marathon, my 4th marathon! It was also really special because there were so many of my Nark Running Strategies teammates running both the half and full marathon! I love being a part of this amazing group of people!!  There were also a good amount of my Oiselle teammates racing too!!! Sadly I didn't make either group pictures because my mental state on the morning of a marathon is panicked and I like to get into my corral 3 hours before the race. Kidding.  I am just so focused on the task ahead of me, I can't worry or divert my attention to anything else, thus missing photo opps.  Sad face.
