I have today off for Good Friday and I am thoroughly taking advantage. I mean like not getting out of bed until after 8, enjoying my coffee and oats, watching TV, reading blogs and I'm STILL in my PJs...but don't tell anyone mmmkay? ;)
I promise not to rant about all the snow that is STILL around for this post, but that stuff has got to go!!!
|How creepy are these icicles?! I swear winter is trying to eat us here in Nova Scotia...you heard it here first!|
Okay, here are my 5:
Once again I'm eating like a champ and keeping 'Food for Fuel' in mind.
I made such good gains, and then.....
|Sam happens! LOL, just kidding! I was ecstatic when I came home after a long day|
at work to find two of these on my doorstep :D
My Runner Passport, welcome handbook and Boston gear catalogue arrived this week!
I read all the info and it appears that I'll be starting at 10:50 Boston time, 11:50 Nova Scotia time and 12:20 Newfoundland time this year. And I will also be sporting a blue bib - I've had white the past two years so that's pretty neat!
I will not freak out by the elevation chart, I will not freak out by the elevation, I will not freak out...
|Reading over this map truly gave me flashbacks of the race last year and the year previous. Specific points triggered either spectacular memories, or painful ones, depending on the mile...lol.|
3. New Kicks & Socks!
These are my Boston shoes :) Yes, they're the exact same as the previous pairs I've had but if it ain't broke, don't fix it....especially this close to marathon day. Plus Hashem refused to send me a different pair before the Marathon...lol.
I saw these and squealed! They are already being shipped to my address, lol.
4. Shenanigans with Lola:
Walking with Lola these days looks a lot like this:
|Such an adventurous dog ;)|
|I admire how Lola thinks she has the stature of a Saint Bernard when it comes to 'scaring things.' Clearly the cat was terrified as I had time to take out my phone, open the camera and take two photos while Lola barked and growled.Silly dog. <3|
On Wednesday, April 1 I tallied up my March Miles. I log daily and my app gives me a weekly total plus a YTD total. Here's my monthly total:
|Like come on! Obviously I would have ran around the block for a half mile to get an even 200, obviously!|
Wednesday: 6 miles around the hood
8 easy peesy paced miles around the hood on Thursday.
My + 1: These Starbucks Boulange cups!
How pretty are these?! I totally vote that Starbucks keep the pink label :)
PS Boston is in 17 days!
