Thursdays are for thinking out loud . . .
The Boston Marathon 2016 while now in my rearview mirror is an experience that I have been thinking long and hard about during our time away in Florida. It was one of the more challenging races that I have run but it is one where I regained pieces of myself that had been lost. I promise my recap is coming soon. It is taking some time to get back into the swing of things with the blog and the daily rhythm of life here in beautiful Northern New Hampshire and I want to make sure that I am able to fully express the feelings and my race experience. In the meantime please enjoy reading some awesome recaps from some amazing running bloggers:
Since the marathon I have been resting my legs other than a few easy sunset miles in Florida and some easy miles of run-walking with my daughter and niece. I am trying to heed my coaches advice and to not jump back into running too quickly although I have to admit I am itching to run and hope to grab some easy miles tomorrow. I am also preparing to switch gears a bit with my training as I am going to be racing my second Half Ironman (Timberman 70.3) in August so I need to dust my bike off, take it to the shop for a tune up and get my miles going. I also need to get back in the pool again. I am looking forward to training hard at these disciplines as it will also allow my body to have a chance to recover from all of the seriously hard training miles for the Boston Marathon. This weekend I am also looking forward to running the annual 1 Mile Fun Run with my kids at their school.
I also have one more running race currently on my race schedule. In the beginning of June I’ll be headed to ZOOMA Annapolis to race the Half Marathon as a ZOOMA Women’s Race Series Race Ambassador. I am so excited to represent this awesome race series as an ambassador and am looking forward to meeting many of the other ambassadors during the race weekend. Here are the blogs of two other awesome ambassadors that you should definitely take a peek at:
This race series has 3 different races throughout the year in Annapolis, Cape Cod and, Amelia Island Florida.
I am so excited to be a ZOOMA race ambassador and the extra exciting part is that I have a 10% off RACE DISCOUNT CODE to offer you when you register for one of the races:
