I LOVE this weekend of the year for so many reasons! It's Spring, the school year is winding down AND the local racing season is in full swing when the Blue Nose comes around. :)
I will be running the half this weekend and NOT for a PR. I pinky promise! (If I finish faster than 1:36:39 on Sunday you have permission to give me a nuggie). I have no business running stupid fast on Sunday. I have a marathon training cycle on the horizon and I'm really excited about it. So don't screw this up Racing Heather!
Oh, here are 2 running play list suggestions before you get going:
1. You have to download Renegades by the X Ambassadors!
2. Ugh, and how much am I loving running to Wasted Time by Keith Urban?!
Now, let's move onto the Friday 5:
1. Spectating at the Fredericton Marathon!!!
What a nice treat to not have pre-race jitters and to not actually have to go through the formality of racing, lol. Spectating is where it's at when you're enjoying Marathon recovery. ;) I was able to cheer Matt, Sam and Jennie in the full and also Craig and Stacey in their half. Everyone had a fantastic race!!!!
Lola was a bit put out since all of the attention was not on her. ;)
2. Blue Nose Youth Run!!!
As you know I've been helping the fourth and fifth graders at my school prepare to run in the Blue Nose Youth Run. How cool that I get a Coach shirt?!
I got some solid running in over the past couple of weeks and my body is ALMOST back to normal...I think. One thing I'm loving about Spring running: Not having to layer up with a gazillion tops/pants, etc. and finally getting to wear some of my flashy spring stuff!
|This has been my longest run post Boston and I got to enjoy 8 of those miles with Marg!|
This run was very colourful... ;)
Why someone has so many photos of food on their phone is beyond me. Here's a look at a few things I've enjoyed over the past two weeks, lol.
|PD day lunch out at Coras with a coworker. :)|
|Santa Fe salad from Boston Pizza in Fredericton!|
School night chicken and veggies:
And a Friday after school shopping pick me up. ;)
5. Happy Birthday Dad!
So I have a HUGE favour from you guys: My super awesome running friend Marg is running in her VERY FIRST FULL MARATHON on Sunday at the Blue Nose!!! If you could all just tell her how totally awesome she is going to rock it, that would be great! ;)
|GOOD LUCK MARG!|
Thanks so much for stopping by the GGR blogosphere and have yourself a Blue Noser Long Weekend!
Who else is running the Blue Nose?!?!?!
How is your running going?
